    My partner and I recently got a new car, so we both have big cars for when our bub arrives (Still TTC) I bought a new nissan qashqai ti (luxury model). It is a dream to drive. It's a small suv. 5 star safety rating. 2014 small suv car of the year. It's beautiful to drive. I also find it has plenty of room for me and my partner (who likes leg room). Still plenty of room in the back too.

    Otherwise, if your budget allows our other car is a nissan patrol and it is huge on the inside. 8 seats so plenty of room for friends down the track etc and when the back seats are folded in the boot space is gigantic. Although they are big cars, the sensors and cameras make it so easy to drive. Personally I feel safer in a big car and they're so much easier to drive being up high.

    I think so, yes. My dp is 6 ft and he has no issue except for when a car seat is rear facing. The passenger seat was a tad uncomfortable for him then but now we are forward facing there is no issue. I highly recommend you take a test drive a see if it suits you as it does us. We haven't regretted purchasing ours brand new last year.

    We have a VW Jetta which was fine with 2 car seats but longer term needed another car anyway as DH's run around was dying. We bought a 1year old top of the range Kia Sportage with about 10k on the clock for $34k. Of the cars in it's class (Kuga, ASX, Craptiva) it has the biggest boot space. We got diesel and it's pretty fuel efficient. My first car was a wagon so I'm used to driving a slightly larger car but it's really not that big to drive though I do like the extra height (in terms of getting the kids in and out of car seats and me getting in and out - I have a dodgy back and knees). It's won car of the year a couple of times I think by some car magazine. We also looked at a Hyundai ix35 and almost bought one but the dealer couldn't find it despite it being on the internet and not having sold..... The ix35 and the Sportage are the same under the bonnet so we weren't fussed about which of them we got. $35k was our limit but I wanted leather and a few other bells and whistles which ruled out a lot of other cars (Honda CRV, Volvo, VW). I love it. I raved about it so much a friend went and bought one as well. We also got it with the extended warranty. So far it hasn't skipped a beat.
