    Our car is about to die! I will have to trade it in for another...we are looking for a large 7 seater (5 kids) and one which I will have for a couple of years ( I hope!) Am looking for a 2008 model approx.
    I am currently driving a Landrover and the tax per annum is huge...Trying to keep our annual costs as low as possible so could anyone recommend a 7 seater that would have low tax...most of the engines seem bigger and therefore have a higher tax.
    I think the Volvo XC90 is the same as the landrover...any ideas please?
    Thanks

    Touran 1.4, is a 7 seater. But I think it would be too small.

    I guess then look for something that falls within the new Road Tax and get something with low CO2. Parkers.Co.UK is good for finding this out. Some of the new diesels are low CO2. 5 kids 2 adults, and random luggage is going to be heavy. You'll need an engine with a bit ooompff.
