    "Excellent family car"

    Have a second hand 06 plate, it runs really well, is great to drive, MPG is ok, it has built in booster seats on the back seat and fold up seats in the boot, so get to have 7 seats without having to have a people carrier. Best thing is, with the built in seats, there is lots of space to fit 3 kids across the back!

    There is loads of room in the V70 and lots of hideaway pockets for more valuable items like games consoles, tablet computers and mobile phones. We have the 7 seat version with 2 seats in the boot, there is plenty of leg room for the children with these seats and you can still access the side luggage compartments. Child seats fit in easily and features like airbag curtains add to the feeling of safety. Front seats are very comfortable and the drivers chair has a good amount of adjustability. It is easy to drive and fuel efficiency is great; we get 38mph on the rural roads we drive, more if we are on motorway journeys.

    This Estate is perfect for travelling with a family of 4.
    There is leg room in the back, the seats are really comfortable and the boot holds lots. This car is reliable and safety conscious.

    This car is great - we have the one with 2 folding seats in the boot which gives us 7 seats in total. Great boot capacity - seats VERY easy to put up. Drives very nicely - the automatic is lovely. Get about 31mpg. Kids like it - cars seats strap in with no problems. Full leather interior - very comfortable - have a tow bar and bike carrier on the back - great for family holidays / days out. Highly recommend.
