Is there anything interesting second hand to buy you'd recommend?

Showrooms and forecourts are dreary places these days - like looking for a washing machine. No SUV's or EV's or diesels please but is there anything used, reasonably aerodynamic but interesting/ less common for about £15,000. It needs to cover 5 hour drives in comfort. Thank you for any inspiration.

How about a Mazda 6? It's a very comfortable, left-field saloon (or estate) car that's great to drive and very comfortable on long journeys. Alternatively, look for an Alfa Romeo Giulia or Volvo S90. The budget might need stretching for these but they're very desirable premium saloon cars that are a bit different to the usual German competitors.
