    Don't have a Mazda, but I LOVE my Hyundai Santa Fe. I have the 7 seater - we usually have it set as a five seater with large boot space for taking our dogs places, but being able to have those extra couple of seats has come in handy quite a few times!

    Subaru Liberty Wagon (same shape and engine as the Outback but with smoother suspension, a bit lower, and more luxury features as standard). 5 star safety rating, very economical and brilliant for carting children/bubs around and the family pet because it isn't too high.

    I have a CX5 and love it. Only criticism is that sometimes it doesn't seem to have much get up and go. But we have the base model. We've gotten used to it. Fuel economy, comfort etc has been amazing

    Other ones we were considering were the Subaru Forester, Subaru Outback (which I think we would have got if it was more in our price range), Honda Accord and Mazda 6 station wagon.

    Also after parking next to a Subaru Liberty at work recently, I'd consider a station wagon version of it.

    Oh how is the space in the back seats? We are wanting to be able to fit at least 2 car seats and still got a person in there too

    best friend has a cx5 and loves it she has had it about 2 yrs and her kids are now 14,16 and 18 so at times still has had 2 in the back at times. They use it for towing a boat.as well and bike trailer for motorcross bikes.

    Sorry I only just saw this! At the moment we've just got DD but DH reckons that would be fine. It feels pretty spacious back there

    I'm onto my second CX9 and love it. So roomy, great quality and drives well. It does go through the fuel though but I think it's worth it. If you don't need the 3rd row then you can lie the seats flat and have a massive boot.
