Default Re: Need help with finalising a replacement for my BMW 320d - Budget is 40 lakhs, ex-showroom

Amongst the C class equivalent sedans, Audi A4 B9 35 TDI has the best boot space and back seat. I did repeated test drives to come to this conclusion. GC is sufficient to glide over most Mumbai roads, Bangalore shouldn't be much different/difficult.
in case you really wish to maximise cabin space and GC, do look at the BMW X1. I came quite close to buying one (bought the A4 instead eventually), i find it to be quite good.
within your budget, i don't think any other car would make more sense (given the filters you mentioned in your original post).

So what did you end up buying? I'm assuming your 320D was taken away

If you are getting the A6 at under ₹40 l ex showroom, thatís a no brainier. Else would consider the 3GT if available. Not sure you will be happy with an entry spec Discovery Sport, though I think that all variants now come with the higher horse power engine (VS the anaemic 140 HP version that was available earlier). The Kodiaq would be a good buy if you are not brand obsessed, esp as your company or lessor needs to deal with the maintenance hassles, if any.

Thanks Hayek.
Yes, the 320D is going away next week. It hurts to sell that car but I can't keep it :(

Thank you all. I'm going in for the A6 C7 which was available at 40 ex-showroom after discount. Will get a few external mods done and should serve me well. I'm primarily looking for backseat comfort and I found the A6 to be a good balance between ride and handling .
