Well the wife runs a Vx Zafira and if you don't need the back 2 seats all that often it's great as they just fold flat out of the way giving you a useful estate car option.

Had it 3 years and done 45K and it's never missed a beat.

It's got plenty of toys: electric windows, mirrors, sunroof, a/c, alloys , 8 speaker CD system.

Only has 7 seats - If you do need an 8 seater then the Pug 807 had that option.

A neighbour has one and I've driven it a few times - seems OK

Delica elbowroom pretty poor.

My tuppenceworth is Toymota Estima/Emina/Lucida. Loads around to choose from. Imports, so not driven on salt roads all their life. Lots of toys available.

most 7 seaters are just that....no room for bags n kit unless you want it piled up on your laps...esp true of most 4x4's cos they have reduced floor pan to fit in the wheels arches at the rear so anyone in the rear has their chin on thier knees...christ knows we looked at loads of motors when our 4th kid came along but you do get the feeling the motor co's dont think about large family motoring anymore...or rather you can have the seats but no space for coats bags etc...the sintra and a couple of others have a flat floor pan front to rear...lots of space for buggys n bags...prob only the grand voyager has more boot space because of the extra body shell length...but we found it had bigger seats so less space to wedge stuff in...catch 22....avoid the merc vito...cos the engines are bitches to get to so service cost is high...the new ones are massive inside and lux spec but cost around £22K...
