    "Practical, but nice to drive"

    This is a really good family car, it easily fits any combination of 3 child seats and has built-in sun blinds at all 4 rear windows. There is also an extra rear view mirror so that you can easily keep an eye on the kids in the back. There is space for a big rear facing child seat, I have a Britax Multi Tech behind the passenger that my youngest child will be using until she is at least 5 and there is plenty of legroom left for the front seat passenger.

    The very rear-most seats, pulled up from the boot floor have a decent amount of legroom. For a child you don't have to move the middle row forward at all, and for an adult (yes, these seats are suitable for adults but probably not for hours on end during a long journey) you only need to slide the middle row forward slightly. The downside of this decent legroom is that the space left in the boot behind them is slightly disappointing. There is only space for a umbrella-fold buggy, with a couple of bags on top. You do however get a decent amount of space underneath the rear seats, in the gap that they have been pulled up out of.

    Mine has a 1.6l Diesel engine and it's great, really powerful and lovely on the motorway. I initially test drove a petrol one and it was awful!

    "Meh"

    It's alright, a bit dull really. All five of us and two dogs fit nicely, the visibility via side windows isn't brilliant. We bought an entry level version that has no heated front window or parking beepers, which we miss having had them on our Ford Galaxy. We are ready to let it go and are planning to look around for something new having had it for 18 months.

    "Great car for a big family"

    We needed a car to fit our four children in comfortably and this one easily does this. Very similar to the Citreon C3 Picasso but we went for this one because it is very economical to drive, can fit 3 car seats along the 2nd row and has the safety benefit of air bags for passengers in the 3rd row (boot). The only reason that I haven't given it 5 stars is because I don't think the 3rd row seats are as comfortable as those in say the Ford Galaxy.

    "Great family car"

    I have got this car and it's brilliant. It easily fits a child seat and two booster seats across the back. Then you have the option of massive boot - great when you're going away and need to pack all the stuff that comes with kids - or two extra seats that are spring loaded which is great for taking the inevitable extra kids around.
