You would definately get a Laguna 1 for the money,maybe even a Lag 1 Phase 2 if you buy privately and shop around.
I think the Espace or Scenic are a little out of your price range,but there is a Lag 1 estate which would have plenty of room.There is also a 'family' version with two folding seats in the load bay making it an occasional 7 seater.
The early 1.8 8 valve petrols are pretty gutless,but the 2.0 8 valve or any of the 16 valve petrols are much better.I would personally avoid the 2.2 normally aspirated diesels,but all of the
diesels are fine.
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
