What to replace my BMW 330d with?

I currently drive a BMW 330d Touring. It's been a great servant and never missed a beat in the four years I've owned it, but it's coming to the time to move on. With the future of diesel looking at best unsure, what would be your recommendation for a long term replacement?

Typically I like to hold a automobile for about five years and in an ideal world to buy a one-year-old automobile. Looking for something practical yet fast, engaging and comfortable. A plug in electric automobile is out as I don't have and cannot get a power point installed in the apartment complex that I live in. Typically I do only 11,000km per year in this automobile and 90 per cent of the time is on motorway runs.

Why does my SEAT stop-start not work?

I have a 2011 SEAT Leon Ecomotive SE 1.6 diesel and the stop-start system is not working. It seems to have decided to stop working and when I try to use it the message on my dashboard is 'start/stop is not possible.' I have checked the tyres and the pressure and they seem to be within spec. Can you advise what I need to do to get it back working?
