It's packing 250Nm of torque, should be fine.

Appreciate the efforts. Cracking deal voted hot, but the only problem with this for me is I can’t get 3 car seats on the middle row. Really uneasy about putting a car seat in the back row given the lack of space between that and the boot in a rear impact. Plus it’ll do my back in trying to get the kids out of the back row of seats!

From what I’ve read the Galaxy, S-Max, Alhambra and Sharan are the few that can manage that feat. Though I don’t like the styling of the Ford Galaxy.

I believe some of the Joie car seats are quite slim. Cheaper to buy a few new seats than splurge on a vastly more expensive car.
Has VAG group sorted the issues with this engine yet?
Citroen c4 are notorious for problems unless they are better now than before..

Appreciate the suggestion. The car seats I’ve got are on the slim side too. The problem you get is the isofix makes it awkward to fit them as you can’t push them closer to the door. So only a few cars can fit 3 across one row. Usually they have isofix in the middle row too which is a plus.

You don't have to have Isofix though. A properly belt-secured seat is plenty safe enough. I'm now at the stage where my youngest two aren't in harnessed seats but when they were, their seats wouldn't budge.

They do look good but we are also looking to change the car to get some extra boot space so hoping I don’t have to resort to one of those. Plus it means we can’t use the 2nd row for other passengers.

I think maybe the current Peugeot 5008 might fit 3 across, but you can’t beat the original XC90 for carrying your family in comfort and safety. Find a well looked after one and they are awesome and you’ll save a fortune. Or the current Q7, but even one of the first with plenty of miles is £25k

Did you have 3 car seats at the same time? My main concern is the awkwardness in trying to belt all 3 in. Whereas in the isofix they’re in harnesses. So no difficulty trying to find the clip for the seatbelt. My back isn’t the best so if I’m constantly leant over trying to clip them in it won’t do me any favours.
Absolute bargain!

Yeah we did like the 5008 and it has 3 individual seats in the second row so should be ok. However, it’s a bit out of our budget for a nice spec one. There don’t seem to be too many about either which means I haven’t found a good deal. Looking at maxing out at about the £23k mark. I did check the xc90 but they were still super expensive as used. I’d be really wary about the warranty so would rather get a less premium brand and have manf warranty on it.

I mean the original Mk1 XC90 - as long as you don’t do loads of mileage , you could spend £12 -14k on one, with a year’s warranty from a Volvo main dealer, and you’ll have a load of cash left over to maintain it. Our 2003 D5 XC90 SE is still going strong with 160k miles on it and even took us to mid France and back to Manchester last year in superb comfort and still did 34mpg with a roof box on it! Get an R-design or an SE Lux or an Executive to get better quality leather. The standard stereo is amazing too. No fancy tech, but no one has ever died in an XC90 in the UK if the internet is to be believed!

I don’t think this is an auto. Otherwise it will say DSG. Also not sure if it is AWD. Probably 2WD.

Decent price for 7 seater. This car, Skoda kodiaq and the VW Tiguan are basically the same thing with slightly different styling and spec levels. All have the same platform, and share pretty much the same components.

It’s clearly bit of marketing by VW group trying to get a chunk of market share previously held by the likes to Kia and Hyundai on 7 seater SUV at around £25k

But why would you need to belt them in? The non-Isofix seats would be belted in by you and, in reality, once they're in, they're in. It was very rare that we'd have to remove a seat to allow access into our rear row for passengers 6 and 7. And then, even if we did have to do that, fine. Remove the easiest-to-fit car seat to allow it and then refit it. With a little practice it was a doddle. Once the seats are belted in, then the kids just get strapped in via the car seat harnesses just as with an Isofix seat. If your mobility problems are too great then maybe a minibus approach might suit you better? But have a think about what I've suggested. They're no less safe than Isofix.

Good point. Hadn’t considered that you could still get a harness type system with non isofix. Just assumed that you used the belt for the securing of the child too. But obviously that’s just for older kids.

I’ve not got mobility problems per se. I just get a bad back if I overwork it. Kids make sure that’s a frequent issue!
Good deal on paper, shame it's the 1.5 VW petrol engine which has got s major problem which VW haven't been able to sort out yet.
Google 1.5 TSI for more info.

New Citroen Berlingo MPV , Peugeot Rifter MPV and Vauxhall Combo Life MPV come as 5 or 7 seaters; the 7 seaters is all proper size seats with good leg room in the 3rd row.

Ssangyong Tourismo also a proper 7 seater, was very impressed with the 7 seater Ford Tourneo Grand connect - plenty of space. Even the re-badged Renault I mean Mercedes Citan Tourer as a 7 seater has plenty of rear leg room in 3rd row.
If your on a budget the Fiat Doblo MPV 7 seater has 2 proper size seats in the 3rd row with good leg room, they can be ordered with big discounts.

Many other 7 seaters that are hopeless in the 3rd row; likewise the BMW 2 series tourer is hopeless in the 2nd row and 3rd row compared to the competition, and I write that as someone who normally buys anything with a BMW badge on but the 2 series tourer is seriously cramped and crap.

You should also give some thought as to whether you actually need a seven seater. I bought mine (Verso) off my brother. It's had its uses but I don't think I'd be bothered about a seven seat again. In real life, we've rarely made use of the extra seats and I can't think of any situations (for me) that wouldn't have been solved by an extra car journey or maybe my wife drive the Toyota and me drive my little banger. Seven seats come at a premium and if you can reasonably do without them then consider a normal car.

Pretty much on the Skodas. Mine just been in for a service and now lumpy running in first 2 minutes is very much reduced and pull away in 1st now all ok all the time after the first 2 minutes. Apparently they applied the latest engine mgt patch. Mine is the 1.5tsi manual.

We went to look at the Rifter and Berlingo. My wife gave them an emphatic no . Even the Peugeot salesmen was like why are you even looking at this! Same result for the tourneo connect. My wife won’t go for those van crossovers. More likely to persuade her to get one of the bigger van crossovers like the Peugeot Traveller. But again that tipped out of my budget.

I’ll take a look at the Ssangyong. Can’t say I know too much about them so will reserve the cheap Chinese judgement until I’ve read some reviews.
