    We have a Nissan X-Trail and love it so much that I want to sleep with it.

    We have just tested our capsule and carseat rear facing in it and they both fit fine. Boot space is enormous, also has drawers in the boot (that don't take up any of the actual boot space) which is handy for putting all sorts of stuff in. Also has a plastic/vinyl bootspace that can be easily pulled out if necessary to hose it off (handy for big fat dogs or muddy bikes)

    Default Suggestions for new car

    We ended up with a mazda CX7. I love it. Big and spacious but drives like a small car. Economical (I have the 4cylinder not the 6). The boot height is perfect for laying down a blanket to change bubs or wrap him. Plenty of room with the rear facing car seat for the front passenger and a great height to get bubs in and out of the car seat.

    Overall I can't complain so far!

And as soon as we got into any Hyundais or Kias, he felt like he was going to hit his head on the ceiling. Really nothing else matched the Mazda 6 for us on space, price, looks & quality ... but that is just personal opinion. Just a perspective from my very tall DH. We wanted to be able to have a rear-facing capsule without making DH uncomfortable, whether driving or passenger. Of course we got the car and still don't have a baby *sigh*, but that's another story. The dog likes the car anyway. lol
    funny you say that! We have looked at the Mazda 6 (and loved it was looking at the luxary model, so nice) and actually went to buy one - but then I decided I wanted a "biggish 4x4 " hehe

    Also looking into a Mazda cx7 of 9

    Hope it's ok to jump in. We got rid of our Captiva after 4 years of non stop problems (bought it new) - don't touch them, they're a nightmare of a car! We recently bought a CX9 and absolutely LOVE it, could not recommend a car more highly. We went for luxury + sat nav/Bluetooth and it's been fantastic. The service we have received at Mazda has also been outstanding, we will be sticking with Mazda in the future for our car purchases.
