Alan Corsie needs to replace his Honda CR-V. He lives in rural Perth and Kinross, which gets some snow every year – a lot this year – and his work takes him up rough farm tracks and across fields. He therefore requires four-wheel drive and good ground clearance. The vehicle also has to be the main family car at weekends, and needs to carry two adults, three children, and a dog. His budget is the trade-in value of the Honda, plus £10,000-£12,000.
