Re: Espace, Which is THE model/engine to go for?

Just a generic comment on 7 seater MPVs.
We've had both Galaxy and Sedona. Both suffered from usual people mover problem of plenty of seats but little storage space. With 3 kids we rarely needed 7 seats but did need luggage space.
Both almost permanently had one seat removed which solved the problem. No need to discount a model cos of luggage space IMO.
Given the choice I'd also go for a bigger engine then smaller. Underpowered cars use more fuel generally then a larger engined version of same car.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
