Greetings – Though I really enjoy driving my 2013 Boxster S (my third in the past 15 years), at 73 years of age I’m thinking that it might be time to become a bit more practical. A backseat (to help with transporting grandkids) and a little easier entry/exit are beginning to make sense. Though I wouldn’t mind sticking with Porsche, the Macan is somewhat larger than I want and that really isn’t a backseat in the 911! So I’m wondering what your assessment of certain crossovers might be. I also should add that it turns out that I seem to have a bit of a bias … having only driven German cars since 1970 … so I am looking at the BMW X1, Audi Q3 and MB GLA 250. Grudgingly, I’m OK with giving up my 6 speed manual but would still like some level of performance (power/maneuverability). Oh wise one, what is your advice?
