    Love love love my Holden Sportswagon. So much fun to drive, heaps of room front and back. A breeze to park (I've got rear park assist and a reversing camera). Pretty economical too.

    We have an '07 Honda Accord Euro.
    I love it! It's sporty, and the boot's big enough for a stroller and the shopping. It's very fuel efficient too.
    My parent's have the '09 model, which is a lot bigger. They can fit 3 cars seats in without any worries, and the boot is MASSIVE!

    Ours is great, Holden reckons about 9.2L to 100ks but we've gotten it down to 8.5L on a really good run. Tank takes 60L, taking 98 fuel we can drive 700ks on 3/4 of a tank (long distance driving). I fill it up once a fortnight just driving around town.

    Yeah look... Probably not for you if fuel is a major concern. It wasn't for us as our last car was terrible on fuel
    and this is better!
    Ours is a Aug '11 luxury model and we've done few big trips (one with a trailer) and lots of schools run etc and we're sitting on 13.3 lt per 100 at 12,000 km. The diesel 7 seater I wanted was 11.5.. so not a huge difference.
    I find I'm filling it for $110-$120 and getting around 700km.
    It was by far the best car I drove out of the 5698 cars I tested!! lol. I'm
    an expert on 7 seaters!

    I know it's not any of the cars you asked about but we have a Subaru forester and really love it.
    It's a pleasure to drive with plenty of passenger room.
    We have a 2009 manual and it does 8.8-9.0L/100kms.... Pretty good.

    We've got a 2010 Ford Mondeo wagon - diesel and love it.

    Roomy enough for all of us (2 carseats and a teenager in back seat), comfortable ride and economical on fuel. Around town we average 900km from a tank of fuel ... usually about 60 litres to refill (70 litre tank) on the highway we get over 1000km before refilling.

    We have a Lexus rx330. Great car, not so great when the kids thrash it. The boot is massive and automatic that's the best bit. It. Costs around 70-80 to fill the tank and drives really nice. My mum drives a Toyota aswell, all cars they make are very reliable.
