Recommend a replacement for my Audi A6 Avant which can carry two bikes?

I own an A6 Avant 2.7 diesel Tiptronic (purchased March 2008). I wish to change and want a vehicle which can take two bikes if necessary, and is comfortable and suitable for long distances, so quite similar to my current car. Any thoughts please?

If you're after something comfortable for long distances that can take two bikes then you might want to consider a 4x4 such as a Land Rover Discovery 4. It's very versatile and has a huge boot too. If you don't want a 4x4 and would rather stick to an estate, then either Mercedes-Benz (such as an E-Class estate) or Volvo (i.e V70 or XC70) probably offer the most comfortable long-distance cruisers.
