    Default 7 seater outlander.

    We currently are a 1 car family and need a 2nd new ( to us) car. I would love a Kluger but don't have the budget yet.
    An older ( 2012/13) model is within our budget any feedback

    I have one. It's a company car and certainly wouldn't be my choice if I had a choice! The back 2 seats are tiny... We had a 7 year old in there and her legs were cramped. And then there is barely any boot space when you use the seats.

    There is very little room between the 2 car seats in the middle row, but they can fit in the middle and side, so you get space on the side seat for another passenger.

    It's a bit tinny as a car, things rattle around a bit, but I do love that it has keyless entry and a reversing camera. They are the only things keeping me from swapping to an older mazda6 wagon.

    My brother and SIL have a Nissan dualis+2 and it seems a better car overall.

    We have had a look at a few 7 seaters lately as we will soon have 5 kids and need both of our cars to be 7 seater (we currently have a 7 seat 4wd and a sedan). We love the Kluger and the CX9
    Both have more boot space than our 4wd behind the 3rd row of seats. We also liked the Peugeot 7 seater. Didn't like the outlander or any of the "van" style cars.

    I'm currently looking at replacing my work car (Mitsubishi asx aspire) and would like something bigger.

    I've looked at Nissan X trail, Nissan Pathfinser, Mitsubishi outlander, Kia Sorento, Hyundai Santa Fe, Kluger, Captiva, and today a Mazda CX-9.

    What I love about the Mitsubishi is you seem to get more bells and whistles for your money.
    What I don't like about it is that they never seem to be as solid as other cars. I don't even know what I mean by that, just that they maybe "feel" cheaper.

    I'm leaning towards a Kluger or cx9. But I'm frustrated at how basic the base models are - especially the Kluger. It's like you're lucky they've even given you cup holders!
    The cx9 seemed to have a little more. i loved the size of both. Perfect IMO.

    Default 7 seater outlander.

    The Q7 (audi) is a great size - we don't use the 7 seats very often but my twin 13 year old Nieces easily fit in the back 2 seats nicely ( all 5 back seats have anchor points )

    We bought a 2008 kluger last year and love it! I've sat in the back row comfortably and can fit a pram in behind the back row if it's standing on its side. We find it nice and roomy!

    We purchased a Nissan Pathfinder 9months ago and I totally agree with what you said about the base model Klugers. We test drove a ford territory, Toyota Klugger, Mazda CX-9 (we had a cx7), Hyundai Santa Fe and Toyota Prado. We liked the pathfinder and the Klugger but we choose the Pathfinder (base model) as it included more features for your money
