Should I buy a Suzuki Kisashi?

"I'm thinking of buying a 2014 Suzuki Kizashi for £14,999 from my local dealer. I'll only do 5000 miles and it will replace my old Vauxhall Vectra. My wife has a bad back and at five feet tall getting into most cars is difficult. Should I consider an Astra or Citroen C5 instead, or is the Suzuki a wise buy?"
It's a strange car. Very thirsty. High annual tax. But the 4WD will help in snowy conditions in winter. You'll have to think of this as a long-term purchase because it will be difficult to re-sell. Tested here:
