Dear What Car?,

I'm in need of a family car with lots of space. I regularly carry three passengers with me, and because we like to go hiking and fishing at the weekends I need something that's both comfortable and has enough space for all of our gear. I also want something with an automatic gearbox, because my weekday commute involves lots of traffic and I don't want to be changing gear every few seconds. I'm not too bothered about having a posh badge; space is my top priority. My budget is £20,000, or up to £300 per month on a PCP deal.


Drives Seat Leon

The brief

  • family car (hatchback or MPV) with lots of space
  • Automatic gearbox
  • Less than £20,000
