Switched to a Tourneo after having multiple 4x4s. no compromises 6 months into ownership of Sport model not regretting the switch, enjoy trips and exploring UK now. Looks cool in Sport spec too . Decent 7+ seats and room to breathe,. Conference seating is great for kids, and friends . considering it is big on the inside, its no different to driving most 7 seater externally and rear cam , parking sensors all around make town and carparks easy. Just watch out for some multi storeys as they have height restrictions and councils are funny about taking a trip to drop off a bag of rubbish because they class it as a van so you might need a van permit. Would buy another again without hesitation.

This is the 8 seater 140 hp deluxe model with heated seats, cruise control, Traction control, hill start assist, aircon front and rear, heated front screen and mirrors. I think its brilliant for what I use it for, carrying dogs, grandchildren etc and occasional towing of a large trailer or caravan. Generally the space is brilliant, although on occasions at some shows we have taken the dogs to we could have done with something bigger. I've done a number of house moves with it (and a trailer) for friends and family with no problems, even moving half my sisters house from UK to Germany when I did 650 miles in a day and was still reasonably comfortable after all those hours driving - yes I'd definitely recommend this vehicle.

Only very occasionally use the 8 seats, mainly used with 5 seats and dog cages. Brilliant on space (although on occasions could have done with something bigger). For driver, its the most comfortable car I've had - 650 miles in a day no problem. I wouldn't have attempted that in some of the other cars I've had. Reliability good, although only done 55,000 miles so far - Only real problem was heated front screen but this was replaced under warranty.
