This thread is for the 8 Mumsnetters who are taking part in the extended test drive of the Toyota 7 Seat Verso over the next few weeks. Five testers and their families will also be making a video of their test drive - so look out for these on Toyota's page on Mumsnet soon.

Below are some questions for you to answer over the course of the test drive - please don't worry about answering all of them straight away, some may be more relevant after you've had the car for a week or so.

We'd like you to post updates on this thread at least twice a week - more if you'd like!

What were your/your partner's first impressions of the car?
What do the children think of it?
Do the children fit comfortably in it?
How easy is it to fit car seats/ adjust seats etc?
What's it like to drive?
Is it a comfortable ride?
What's the boot space like?
How easy or difficult was it to change the layout of the seats?
Does it have any useful extras - cup holders etc?
Has testing this car made you more or less likely to buy a Toyota in future?
Has testing this car changed your perception of Toyota cars at all? If so, how?
What one thing do you like best about it?
What one thing would you change about it?

For those of you not taking part in the extended test drive, the Toyota Verso is all about versatility, so we'd like to hear your thoughts on this - please share on this thread how you'd like your car to be more versatile.
What do you wish your car could do to help make your life easier? If there was one feature or gadget your car could be fitted with what would it be?

Thanks and good luck,

Well I had to return the Verso on Saturday and I was very sad to say goodbye!
After two weeks of testing, I feel that I'm in a good position to judge whether this would make a good family car. My answer is yes.
I specifically liked the road height - a great vantage point being slightly higher than other vehicles.
The drive was very smooth and easy. It drove easily through the gears and had fabulous acceleration.
It was the most economical car I've ever driven (diesel).
Leg room was certainly an issue, but as I am only 5'1" I was fine!
There is a large blind spot at the rear passenger side, which was a bit offputting when parking.
The indicator noise was so quiet you could barely hear it. I think it should be louder.
All in all, yes I would put a Toyota as a front running contender when we change our old Ford next year!
