I am driving to Bavaria in two weeks time ( from the U.K. ) and have the choice of using two vehicles both under two years old.
One is a VW Passat diesel which does around 60 m.p.g., and the other is a four wheel drive Land Rover which is fitted with winter tyres and does around 36 m.p.g. The advantages of taking the VW, are economy and the fact the car will be on home territory.
On the other hand the Land Rover will go anywhere at any time.
I know I am very unlikely to encounter snow, but is there any likliehood of ice (returning 7th. November ) or floods at that time of the year. And what are the chances of fog thick enough to enforce driving at under 50 m.p.h.
I am keeping a watch on local weather, but at the present time am still undecided on which car to take . Any help pleaase ??
