I spent ages looking for a car that would comfortably fit 5 with three car seats. I loved my multimac but it was time to move on!
This is big and the boot is huge - or when we have friends or the MIL the extra seats in the boot are great; large enough for adults with reasonable leg room.
The mpg is the second reason I bought - we have had a 52mpg average on a long run compared to other mpvs that boast 37 as top.
The third reason was the sliding doors! The children can get out easily in tight spaces without clonking other cars and I can get to them to clip in their car seats with out being a contortionist.
As for driving, I m no petrol head, but I love it. It's smooth, quiet and has enough grunt to feel comfortable on the motorway.
Can't say how happy I am with this purchase !.
