Dear What Car?,

I’d appreciate your advice on which car I should buy next. I’m 69 and a pensioner and want to replace my 15-plate Kia Sportage with an SUV with four-wheel drive and an automatic gearbox. I love everything about the Sportage, except the driver’s seat. I am six feet tall, with long legs, and the seat base doesn’t extend to behind my knees, making it very uncomfortable. Before the Sportage, I had an Audi A6 with the extending seat base, which was brilliant. Could you recommend an SUV with a tall driving position for around £25,000?
