Sadly I didn't get a drive of the car, but according to the boss, it's veeerrryy nice, and quick. I did get a test in the Skoda VRS though......stunning handling, bit noisy though.
And yup, if I could afford it, it would be my choice of car.
Performance car wise I've only driven the Volvo T5, T6, Skoda Superb 3.6ltr V6, Range Rover Sport and the Skoda VRS. They're all different, the T5 needs treating with respect. As my advanced driving instructor told us, you can do things in a T6, try it in a T5 and you'll come off the road, torque steering is the big thing you notice between them.
I tend to spend the majority of my time in a T6 these days, but I do enjoy the T5 just to keep my hand in with manual clutch and less driver help from the DSTC. T6 is good, it'll keep up with most things, for those it can't we have the MD902.
My favourite is the Skoda Superb, stunning handling and power. Nice interior, with lots of space.
