Dear What Car?,

I had a life-changing motorcycle accident in 2013 and require a large SUV with the most advanced safety systems to make my journeys safe and comfortable. I need an automatic gearbox and I need to fit a rotor ball on the steering wheel, too. I've got about £40,000 to spend, but would be open to a PCP finance deal on a new car of around £450 per month.


Drives Mercedes-Benz GLE

The brief

  • Large SUV
  • High levels of safety, but also comfortable
  • Ability to fit a steering ball
  • Less than £40,000 or around £450 on a PCP finance deal
