Just a quick question. I need a new car, not sure which one to get. I have a few options. My budget is 8.5k and I'm liking the BMW x1, 3 series and then lexus ct200h.

I have 3 children,the youngest being 2 so will need to be able to fit in a car seat and not leaving the other 2 children cramped. We keep the pushchair in the boot and so extra room for groceries etc.

What would you recommend?

Depends on the colour.

How old are your other two children?

None of them unless you can afford bmw/Lexus repair bills.

Bmw1 series will be way too small. Forget that one from the off.

Skoda Yeti. I have a company one provided for a school run I do. Four children up to 16 will fit in very comfortable. Ample leg room in rear seats. Its a 1.25 auto with plenty of guts. Seven gears with sport and triptronic selections. Nice size boot too. Fuel consumption is good. Also will fit in most garages as about the length of a focus. Some good reviews on motoring sites. For 8.5k should be able to pick up a decent one? If like me don't like auto, manual versions available.

Not liking the yeti. How about the q3? A bit pricey but can get a nice one for a couple of grand extra.

I don't know about the q3 but I have a q5 and I love it, best car I've ever driven.
I always swore I'd never have an audi but don't think I'd have anything else now.
