Does the job well enough for me! If I had the money I'd have gone for an Audi A6 allroad

I have a Sorento auto and it's doing a good job towing my boat (1500 kg) and all the family & gear to Scotland and back every year. The road tax of 520 a year stings a bit but the fuel consumption seems ok.
I was interested to find out how it performed in the 3" of snow we had last week and although the tyres are a road pattern with about 4 mm of tread it never missed a beat loaded with 6 people and all the gear .
Did a beach/grassy bank retrieve with the boat last year too with the same result. For a cheap motor it's done everything I've asked of it.
