I want a large petrol estate to replace my current Volkswagen Passat, what are my options?

I have a 2.0 litre petrol Volkswagen Passat estate and am looking to replace it this autumn. Given that there isn't a petrol Passat with the same power what are my options in a similar(ish) price bracket for an estate with that sort of capacity? I'd even consider the Audi A6 Avant e-tron or Volkswagen ID.7 if available.

Although the Passat Estate GTE has officially gone off sale, the Volkswagen UK website says it is available from stock, so you could potentially enjoy 218PS with the flexibility of a plug-in hybrid.

The Audi A6 Avant e-tron offers strong performance with 299PS but with a starting price of £58,000 is a bit more expensive than the Passat, while the Volkswagen ID.7 is yet to be released and at present is only expected to be available in saloon form rather than with an estate bodyshape.

Your best option may be to look at something used, otherwise you may have to increase your budget in order to keep the same performance and space as your current Passat.
