We are looking for a 2nd car which if needed can carry me, DH and 3 DS. We only need one car seat now so all the three rear seats need to be comfortable to sit on. I have noticed many middle rear seats seem to be raised in the middle and fairly narrow but really want 3 proper seats. We have a galaxy as our main car and love the high driving position so that would be an advantage too. We also want something cheap to run and tax.

You'd be best going for something along the lines of a renault scenic or other type of car where the individual seats are removable- they tend to all be proper seats that way. I have an older style Nissan Note and it's not too bad for a bench seat car though I wouldn't call it large.

If you want a more saloon style then something like a Skoda Octavia (or estate version) these are usually used as taxis so are fine for 3 in the back - we have one but it's usually just the 4 of us. Only thing I don't like about normal cars v's MPVs is that you always have t have your feet to each side of the central bump in the back of a normal car but that may not affect you too much for a few years if DC are still youngish.

I had a Nissan Qashqai which would do the job.

Thanks for the information - I had not thought about the central bump so will bear that in mind.

Renault grand scenic is lovely

I have a VW Touran - has two boot seats and 3 real sized seats in the back. The boot seats are easy to put up and can be used individually. I have carried 7 adults inc driver grin

Yeah I'd agree the Nissan Qashqai is a good option, they're very comfortable to drive.

They aren't that expensive to buy considering what you get for the car, I know that bought new we've got the target price at £18,545.

We had the car in not long ago for a review and found it very affordable to run and definitely recommend as it sounds near enough exactly what you're looking for.
