Because in their own words the male gender will be beaten in the family car is practical. Daan travels 'voluntarily' in a Volkswagen Touran.
It is also a Touran 1.6 FSI. That engine is to Daan taste too lifeless. There is nothing that car where Daan happy. Understandable. It's about space. It is primarily a sober choice. In itself nothing wrong, but Daan should it be something more fun. A family car to come true father can still drive sporty, but the rug rats includes girlfriends still be inside. A seven-seater is not a requirement, but if anything could be: very happy!

Some questions are easy to answer. There has long been a solid alternative to the family man in a hurry, and that's the Fast Volvo Estate. If your wife immediately begin resist: these cars are sometimes supplied with a rear bench. Ok, this bench is the wrong way and directed the Hockeyvrindjes your children are actually the crumple zone. But you have power, space, seven seats and a fairly understated appearance. These are some older cars, so keep in mind that maintenance could turn out somewhat higher. The points you should pay attention to look at this purchase advice.
Ford S-Max 2.0 Titanium STC |
You gave itself to the Ford S-Max to have in mind. That's not a crazy thought. Indeed, the S-Max is more common. The S-Max offers a good mix of space, practicality, looks, ride quality, reliability and performance. Initially you could get the S-Max (buying advice) with a five-cylinder turbocharged Volvo, but the later 2.0 EcoBoost engines are also included in the budget. These are more powerful and more economical. The Titanium version is tasty complete and smoelt well. There are plenty of copies on sale at a dealership cars with warranty. That's a pleasant thought.
Zafira OPC (B)
One of the all time coolest vans. Normally maintains a manufacturer is reasonable in the sportier creating an MPV. Not with the Zafira OPC. A fat bodykit, giant wheels and Recaro fine were standard. You could also consider opting for some nice striking colors such as Arden Blue (see picture below). In the budget, you can opt for the latest copies of the second series. The newer Zafira Tourer fits into the budget, but there is no strong sporting variant. The Zafira OPC has a 240 hp two-liter turbo with big and many hardware Astra OPC. At the Zafira (buying advice) was just as fast on the Nordschleife as the Golf V GTI. But the Zafira MPV is quite useful: you have access to seven seats. Also, the OPC standard tasty fully equipped.
Seat Altea XL Freetrack 4 2.0 TFSI DSG
The Seat Altea XL does not go down in history as the most spectacular car. Where the short version is quite enjoyable, is that the XL Freetrack trim against. We will not talk around it: this car is very ugly. That said, you get a lot of bang for your hard-earned cash. This was at the time one of the most expensive Seats that you could buy at that time (special Cupra's just not included). You have a 2.0 TFSI engine (from the Leon FR) with more than 200 hp, which forces are distributed via a Haldex clutch DSG box and four wheels. Your wife will be too happy about it, because it is quite a practical matter, the Altea XL. You should not just look at it. Even when it is, it is advisable to look through the large glass panels. The interior is a bit sad. Plaster on the wound: all options are usually well and it all works very logical. You can also choose from the latest ones that are for sale there.
Mercedes-Benz E250 Combi (S212)
Of course, an E-Class wagon is not sporty. Nor is it a seven-seater. So why recommend it? Being perhaps the best ever built wagon. The E-classic Estate is namely very broad. A cargo space of 2,000 liters is not biting much unheard of. But because no MPV or SUV weighs 2,500 kg the car. The E250 1.8 turbo engine is strong enough for most work. Sportsmanship is foreign to him, although some German import models have an AMG paketje. Only one found in the budget difficult. Even in Germany there are not many for sale. Do not make the mistake to settle for a C-Class, which are considerably tighter. Whether we have a buy recommendation for this car? But of course!
Subaru Tribeca 3.6R
In the Gallery Der Ones, this Subaru. The nose was so ugly unhappy that there followed a quick facelift with a more normal front. Since then the car went through life as' Tribeca 'instead of' B9 Tribeca. The Tribeca is a generous size larger than the Forester and a pure soft roader. Standard they were very well equipped. The engine is a six-cylinder atmospheric boxer. So basically this Tribeca is more of a Porsche, the Cayenne than that. The performance-consumption ratio is not favorable. Performance bit disappointing and the Tribeca lust over a hearty swig. They are classified as very elaborate, so there you have less costs. Advantage: they are very attractively priced! There are enough copies reasonably low mileage.
The Mazda CX-9 is not entirely different from the above Subaru. Like the Tribeca is the CX-9's biggest car who are the Japanese in the showrooms, although the American standards are Medium Crossovers. Again, the performance is a little bit disappointing, despite high consumption. The Mazda has equipped more than beneficial. The advantage is the enormous amount of space and of the driving characteristics. This is a nice crossover to be along the way. The final agreement is you can sleuth excellent specimens in the budget. If the CX-9 still a size too large, the CX-7 even better, thanks to the engine from the Mazda 3 MPS.
YOLO: Dodge Magnum SRT-8 (LX)
The Dodge Magnum is the slightly modified chassis of the 'W210' E-class. So it's a big car, not as spacious as the E-Class, but it's not much. The interior is a mockery: dirt cheap plastics provide a shabby atmosphere. The finish is extremely frugal and any kind of refinement is the Magnum strange. That is a disadvantage, but also the charm of the car. The Magnum has a lot of character. Especially in SRT-8 is the perfect combination between Musclecar and family car. The engine is a 6.1-liter Hemi V8 produces 426 horsepower and produces a great soundtrack.
