<strong style=”box-sizing: border-box; color: #333333;”>Proton Exora – from $25,990

Australia’s most affordable seven seater is the Lotus-tuned Proton Exora. It comes with a 1.6-litre turbo engine that makes 103kW, and 205Nm (from a low 2000rpm), paired with a CVT automatic gearbox. Space is well-used with easy access to the third row of seats and a dash-mounted gear selector clears up space around the dash. All the standard equipment you expect plus a four-star ANCAP rating and five-year warranty are other things in the Exora’s favour.

A friend of ours has 4 kids and drives a Chrysler Voyager. Nissan Pathfinder is also a nice big car. What about a land cruiser? Pajero?

sugarcloud :  My brother has a Pajero and has the same problem you mentioned above re: boot space when the extra seats are deployed.

My cousin, who has a tribe of kids (biological and foster) has the carnival and loves it and doesn’t know how else she would manage and none of the kids need prams etc. In the long run it could be worth the money or try for a secondhand one.

not an aussie, but i find minivans have a lot more trunk space than SUVs.  we just bought a minivan, expecting #2.  our middle row is 3 seats.  so with the back row down, there is the plenty of room for suitcases and our dog’s crate.  with the back row up, or half up, we still have a ton of space.

i have the honda oddessey.  i don’t know if that is an option for you. but i love it.
