    I need a second car for trips to my man cave in the highlands. A 7 seater would be fine as long as I can get as much space as possible when all the seats are down. I would need around 7 feet or enough to lie down in the back. A van is out as I have a 9-year-old daughter who can’t sit in the front.

    Any suggestions? Have around 6k to spend.

    The traditional answer here has got to be Volvo, right?

    When you say your 9 year old can't sit in the front, do you mean legally speaking or logistically speaking?

    Passat estates and obviously volvos are pretty cavernous.

    there is the issue of 'usable' space.
    .. can't see superb, but mondeo estate https://www.ridc.org.uk/features-re...ndeo-turnier-20-tdci-titanium-5dr-estate-2016

    manufacturers should adopt, the din standard, is it ?, which gives some idea of suitcases you can get in.

    this man cave has bootleg spirits ?
