Are they any good? Can you fit 3 car seats on the middle row?

My Dh has one. Yes you can fit 3 car seats. It's so spacious. You can turn middle seats round to face back row and kids play in the middle. You can also fit 2 car seats in the back seats and one person in the middle.

Excellent do they have isofix?

Our one hasn't got isofix. We got it when kids were older (over 3).

My car didn't have isofix, the garage charged us £20 to fit it in one side. Just an option in case your like me and didn't know your can have it put in!!

@Helenj1977 I had no idea you could fit isofix and am genuinely shocked shock

OP I was looking at this car tonight as it’s in our budget and I have to get four children under five, a dog, a double pram and my 6’6’’ husband in. It looks spacious. Have you tried test driving it?

We have one, it's amazing! We've got an 8 seater, it has two little tvs in it which is a life saver as DD2 gets severe travel sickness, being distracted with the TV on long journeys has improved her travel ten fold. Middle seats can be turned around. Back 3 seats can be made into a bed (we don't need it as a camper right now but it's nice to have incase we ever do). There's cup holders everywhere grin I love storage. And plenty of room in the boot for buggy and luggage if we go away somewhere.

They're definitely worth the money for large families, much more spacious than other cars we looked at.

We went to the dealership at the weekend - no isofix and it can’t be fitted according to the dealer.
Road tax is £255 a year as fuel economy is terrible, even the dealer remarked that you don’t buy one for cheap running.
But it is everything pp said above, lovey, spacious and comfortable. Lots of extras - rear and forward cameras.
I’m still undecided as to if it’s a good buy or not. It’s certainly cheaper than other comparable 8 seaters, but the running costs might outweigh that.
And no isofix is disappointing.
