We're looking at getting me a new car in the next 6 months or so, and I'm looking to upgrade from my little Elantra to an SUV because we're planning on having a third baby down the track.
The Hyundai ix35 has been my first choice for a while, because I love my Hyundai, and I'm assuming that since I constantly see them everywhere and everyone seems to have one, they're a pretty great car. But DH suggested today I look at the Mazda cx5 as well, and now I don't know!
Can anyone who has one (or has owned both) of those tell me the great and not so great things about both? Or even another SUV that rules?
The things that I look for, in no particular order are
- room for 3 car seats across the back (though one of them will likely be a booster seat)
- decent boot space
- fun gadgets and storage spaces inside, DVD players in the back headrests would be awesome but definitely not a deal breaker!
- good fuel economy
- easy to park! I'm used to my nice little car that fits everywhere, and parking is generally not my strong suit
