Skoda Superb. Great value for money, practical and cheap to run. Also consider a Vauxhall Insignia or, if you'd prefer something a bit smaller, a Honda Civic.

Large hatchback that offers excellent value for money. Limousine-like legroom and bootspace. Efficient range of engines. Improved even more with 2019 facelift.
Represents very good value for money. Big boot and generous amount of rear legroom. Diesels are very economical while the 1.5 Turbo petrol is very good.
More comfortable ride than the hatchback. Available with new nine-speed automatic gearbox
