What shall I buy?

I’m looking to buy a new car. I currently have a BMW 1 series which I like but want to upgrade. It will be just me driving it, mostly short distances. I’m looking at BMW, Mercedes or Audi but am not really a car person so would appreciate any advice.

Forgot to add - looking to spend about £30k

Without knowing what you want, other than an upgrade, it's hard to advise. I don't know much about the 1 series, so I would mainly be guided by stereotypes about BMWs and their drivers.

Parkers have a car finder at which asks about various features and suggests cars that match your requirements. That might be more useful than my random opinions on cars I've never driven.
