Wife will be buying something for driving 3 young children to and from a nearby school and to middle class childrens parties, usually with a clown or magician. Shes set on a 2nd hand Volvo XC90- as her mates got one with 2 rows of sets. She wants 2 rows of back seats and a boot big enough for a Bill & Ted buggy, Hunter wellies, a pedigree bred large dog and some fairtrade shopping.
I've managed to convince her she really doesn't need the T6 engine for these tasks but failing to get her away from the requirement of a Female's Battle Chariot.
What options are there that aren't a boxy funbus? £5k tops.
She can get them all in my old V70 but shes keeps driving it into walls & leaving banana skins in the side pocket plus I never get to use the thing, I only really use it to drive to DH trails and visits to the tip.
