Hi OzB friends,
My wife and I have some friends that are having twins! Very exciting stuff.. as such they are in the market for a new car and their current vehicle will no longer serve their needs.
Easy enough you say.. plenty of cars out there that will happily accommodate a family with two adults and two younglings. However, one of the adults is 6'4"(193cm)!
Been to couple of stealerships this morning trying to find a mid sized SUV that ticks all the boxes but when you fit a baby capsule into the back seat of such a car and adjust the driver's seat position for a person who's quite tall we've found several cars in this category wanting.
Anyone out there come across a similar issue that can recommend a car that might work?
RAV4 is out… No leg room for driver
Entire Volvo range is out… See above
VW Tiguan… Just acceptable but not ideal
Honda CRV… The best so far
Our friends aren't necessarily set on a SUV however they are conscious of their environmental footprint and so look favourably upon low fuel consumption. Budget ideally around $50k max and willing to look second hand or new.
Thanks in advance
