    Default Which 7 seater?

    Finally giving in and looking for a 7 seater! Only we'll be changing the Volvo, Veccys going nowhere!

    Thoughts? Only conditions are diesel, rather have torque for lugging bodies (mainly alive) and minimum 7 seats.

    Zafira? I have a Zafira A 2.0DTI but the newer shape 'B' ones look better and are a nicer drive. I will be getting a newer one in the next year or so. Larger enough to cart 3 children (and an oven in the back on one occasion with the rear 2 seat flat!). The rear seat I'd say were more occasional use really, but are still comfortable. Although mine was 100bhp it had enough torque to easily carry 7 adults when needed.

    With 7 seaters , especially the ones with 2 seats in the boot ,

    i always wondered ...

    If you use all 7 seats ( 3 kids , Granny , grandad , mother and father ) and went on holiday to Butlins in Skeggy , you are left with a shoe box space in the boot .

    Where do you put the luggage ?

    On the roof ? ... I doubt it .... The remaining 6 suit cases and all the paraphernalia that goes with babies & kids ,,, e.g. Prams / buggies .

    Maybe a trailer is the answer .

    Sorry , Stevoxsi , for going slightly off track .

    By the way , i have a 7 seater Grand Scenic Megane , 1.9 dci diesel , loads of space , wide interior & high interior roof and i have yet to use the rear 2 spare seats in the boot ,

    anyway one boot seat is blocked by a spare wheel because it only comes with a tyre repair can full of gunk for fixing a flat tyre .

    Swimbo is a childminder, so not too much extra stuff! She has 4 kids atm, so car is fine, but looks like there will be 5 come september. Hopefully the boot will hold it, plus she could always leave one of the seats down.

    That zaffy above has been spec'ed with the spare wheel too, in a cage underneath!

    Looked at a scenic earlier too, but as much as there was more 'people room' the already tiny boot seemed smaller.

    This was the scenic. Don't like the colur scheme btw! http://www.roadsidemotors.com/used/r...om_reg-sui7504

    I know it's a lot more expensive to buy and run, but a friend if ours fosters and they bought a Disco 3 for ferrying kids above. They absolutely love it and say its very versatile. They must be good, just look at how many you see on the school run haha!

    Other than that, another friend has a 5008. They have 4 kids and it suits them. Hth

    This thread is from mumsnet.com website ,

    a member is enquiring about which spacious 7 seat car to buy ,

    http://www.mumsnet.com/Talk/cars/a15...ter-car-to-buy , it may help .

    P.S. == The ( Clear throat ) French 7 seaters normally come with loads of cubby holes / storage , if your other half has a load of stuff to carry regarding her child minding .

    In my Grand Scenic Megane , i have ...

    One under the drivers feet ,

    one under drivers seat ,

    One under passengers feet ,

    the possibility of one under passenger seat , but i have a multi disc player there ,

    two under rear passengers feet ,

    2 big storage bins in the centre , rear & front .

    and three in the boot .

    We have a VW Sharan at work and by fork its quick. We had an XP'd Zafira on loan for a few days while the Sharan was away for tyres and it was equally rapid.
