We have a chevrolet tacuma, and its lovely and spacious. We currently have a car seat and a toddler read racing car seat and theres stil room in the middle seat. Ive just googled it and found a post by someone on mumsnet posted at the end of last year who said you can fit 3 car seats in the back....the older version is the daewoo tacuma. they do lose their price easily but it means you can get them for a bargain second hand. I dont think they make them anymore.
Ive copied some of her post below....
''Its got all the mod cons: air con, cd player, remote locking etc etc...but isn't quite as flashy as some newer cars - we were looking at the new shape renault scenic at first, but heard a lot of bad stuff about the electrics being dodgy and the electric handbrake is a common fault with a ??900 repair bill , so that put us right off!! I love newer cars, but don't like that nearly everything in them is electrical and it scares me a bit as is expensive to repair if/when it breaks!
We got an absolute bargain on ours: is 2005 reg, only 28k miles on the clock, full service history: ??2k!!!
There is room in the back for three car seat, really good sized boot and lots of hidden storage: under floor, draws under the drivers and passengers seats etc. However if you want space and practicality as a decent price, this is the car for you!!'
the tax is a bit more as its classed as an mpv, but our insurance is low
