Will like advice from fellow car enthusiasts for advice on the 3 cars:

Which will you put your money in and why? (Thanks for giving me your reason!)

 

I am aware that the 3 of them belong to different categories but their prices are pretty similar and imho, they all look good and each one with their individual ups & downs. WHICH is WHY I am caught in a dilemma in which to get.

I had also test driven them, except the CLA250(not available for test drive) and am loving how the Jag handles and how wonderful the pull of the BMW is.  Test driven the CLA180SB, underpowered and am not a fan of FWD, especially so for wagon driving.

 

For my needs, it's basically a 4-5door family-type of car with a fun aspect, definitely.

Not too shabby a price when I sell in 3-4years time. 

 

Jaguar XE

CLA 250 Shooting Brake

BMW 330i, F30

Thanks in advance for all your helpful inputs!

Hard to recommend because I have not driven all 3 cars as owner.

Some brothers may have driven the 328i and the CLA, maybe they can chip in?

Anyway from reports they seems to be fantastic cars. Happy choosing and I'm sure any of these will turn out well!

To be driven?

I rather sit in 3 series than CLA back cramp seat lol


Back to topic, i think XE would be my choice since its new model and most chio.

For power and driving i will choose F30

And i will avoid CLA

The 330 is same price as the other 2? I thought it would be more expensive. As for CLA250 SB, why not consider C200 instead. Around same price but better I think.

I test drive xe. Love the car and power but do you realise the rear and boot space is really small? I might be considering to get a audi a6, huge rear space.

Bro, not same price la! Around the same price as I'm adding in options here and there. 

Basically, the price from lowest to highest is CLA250SB, 330i, XE.

 

C200 is not in my consideration..as i don't really like how the new c-class looks.

I do have a 2012 W204 and, no offense to anybody, but I will choose it over the W205 any day.

How much is the 330 going for?

 

I know the XE is 195k.


Thought 330 is around 220 to 230?

Yea, I love the power of the XE initially till I test drove the 330i....!

In the end, I love the steering accuracy and ride stability of the XE & love the power and exhaust note of the 330i. 

Is like, should I go with the power/exhaust audio or steering/suspension setup? 

 

Apart from the boot being small, not too much of an issue to me, the exhaust note is pretty much inaudible and also hidden. Something that I am not quite used to. - I'm used to driving cars with mods

V6? Not even thinking about it! Definitely in excess of 280!

It's a pity the 237hp model is not coming in though.

I think the BMW should have the best resale value, follow by CLA/XE. But it being a LCI model...? 

Between the shooting brake and XE, i am not sure which one will be better or worse.

 

Or maybe it'll be a 3-way tie?
