we are soon to become three in our family and we are trying to decide on what kind of car to get that will fit all that we need in there...
We have two Kelpies so they would need to go in the back (away from the baby) plus have room for a pram etc.
We currently have a Prado and which has been my husbands car and is a manual I find it way too big and can't drive a manual... so we are looking to sell that and buy something else second hand. I currently have a Hyundai i30 sportswagon company car which I love and could potentially buy, but won't be big enough.
Ideally we'd like to have one more child fairly soon after this one too so would need to expand.
Please pass on any recommendations you might have!

Captiva or Xtrail maybe?

Xtrail or Rav4? Rav4s will be much more expensive then similar cars of same age (have found- due to being a Toyoto). Or maybe an older (and smaller) Auto Prado? Room for the dogs in the back!

I have a 2010 Rav4, it's the V6 model and I love it.
We had a capsule and now have a rear-facing Infasecure seat behind the front passenger and have no problems using the front seat, my DP still has plenty of leg room.
The rear seats can actually move back and forward which is very handy if you need more room in the back.
It would fit a second car seat without a problem but you probably would lose the middle seat as it's quite narrow.
I haven't had 2 dogs in the back but there's plenty of room for a big pram and a boot full of shopping.
The only negative I've come across is the lack of air-con vents in the back but it's nothing a pram fan doesn't fix. Actually one other thing is that it's quite thirsty, but that's speaking for the V6 model.
Ive had my car about 1.5 years so far and am very happy with it.

Thanks for those suggestions will take a look, I used to have a Rav back in 2006 for work and didn't mind it... we are now looking at wagons etc too, anyone got a hyundai i40 tourer? Or a Honda Odyssey? Would love to hear what you think of them.
