But we just bought a brand new car and was tossing up between the magna's and the new forresters but space wise we bought the magna as the 4x4 pram wouldnt fit in the forrester and did in the magna with plenty of space (but we did also have an older manga at the time) and also two car seats wouldnt have fitted in the forrester..
We love the magna for the space but hubby still wants his 4x4 and get rid of his ute which obviously only fits our 2yo DD and also i will use the 4x4 as a shopping trolley as he calls it as we have heaps of scratches on the car now due to people not caring about other people car so he is trying to eliminate that.

Our second car is a 1980 Jag and has a huge boot as well, although we don't need it. I only ever use it to go to and from work.

When i fell pregnant with no4 we ended up buying an old nissan patrol 4wd, we went for a 1990 model so we could buy cash and didn't care if the kids rode their bikes into it! Also got gas, side steps, bull bar etc with it. And yes we do take it bush! We found that with needing room for 3 car seats and a booster we were very limited, and people movers are pretty crappy, they're very expensive and designed for adults, not families. Also the patrol is cheap to run, cost us under $300 to drive from melb to cairns a month ago ( i love gas!). Definitely not a luxury car, but very practical and economical.
