Volvo has some E models. The brand doesn’t scream $$$ even though it is on the more mid tier luxury side. I think their cars look better than BMW or any of those brands on that level.

My family works in the car industry & my personal favorites are some of the Volvo & BMW electric/hybrid options. Volvo’s have the reputation of ‘soccer mom’ cars but imo do a great job of mixing luxury and safety (fun fact - they actually have less serious/fatal injuries than Subarus do), plus the finishes are gorgeous. Big fan of the BMW X1 & loved the size - if you are concerned about footprint, I had fantastic gas mileage with it. I also moved my my entire college room out in the X1, which considering how small it looks on the exterior blew my mind.

I quite like my Volvo XC60 TC and will be upgrading to their hybrid next year. I love my Volvo. It's a small SUV that my big, old dog can get in. Better than all the BMWs I've had.

I know we have a thread on this for MBB, but I was wondering if people could give some insight into any retention bonuses/raises/other perks like increased annual leave at their firm as a result of Covid. We got some extra holidays over Christmas and our bonus was paid regularly for last year, but nothing extra. The US bowls seem to be reporting large retention bonuses, so was wondering if UK is similar
