The best thing about the Phaeton, yes, space. Plenty of room for my 6'2 hubby in the back which is rare! The boot is huge making travel with a pram and multiple baby accessories simple. The only caution with a new born is how much of an incline there is on the back seat base... It made finding a rear facing car seat which sat right quite difficult as many ended up too upright. Otherwise it drives beautifully, second hand the price is extremely good value for money and it's soooo quiet inside because it's actually double glazed!
