2017 TOYOTA PRADO

The Toyota Landcruiser Prado is a big seven-seater 4WD, family SUV that I could get three child seats in. Boot space is great too when not using the third-row of seats. Read More

2017 HYUNDAI KONA

I’m more used to seeing lollies this colour, not cars! Can this acid yellow, funky little Hyundai Kona SUV be any good as a BabyDrive? Let’s find out… Read More

2017 SUBARU LEVORG

Fitting child seats in the back of the Subaru Levorg is simple, as there are three top tether points and ISOFix in the two outer rear seats and there’s legroom aplenty. But the rear seat isn’t wide enough to fit three child seats across. The boot space is whopping though! Definitely ample for a family’s day to day activities as well as loading up with all the gear for holidays and family road trips. Read More

2017 Kia Stinger V6 330Si

Kia describes the Stinger as ‘The family sports sedan with five doors’. It is a VERY sporty and good-looking vehicle that I was so excited to drive… on my own!! Read More

2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack Wagon

Overall I found the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack Wagon a very suitable family car, the boot space being a wagon is awesome, and it is a very practical and usable shaped space. I was amazed how much I could fit in the boot! Read More

2017 Subaru XV 2.0i

The Subaru XV is a small hatchback SUV. With lots of people making the switch to SUVs as their family car of choice, we had to put this little SUV through our BabyDrive paces and see how it fairs as a family car! Read More

Hatches

2017 Honda Civic VTi-LX

The latest Honda Civic did not look like the hatchback I was expecting! It seemed too long and I thought we’d been given the Sedan! Read More

2017 NISSAN X-TRAIL

It felt like Nissan had thought of a lot when designing the X-Trail, as there were a lot of practical features like the in-cab storage and there were some nice surprising details such cooled cup holders. Read More

2017 TOYOTA C-HR

The Toyota C-HR lacks the legroom for a grown adult in front of a rear-facing child seat! I could fit two child seats in the back but the boot only just closed with a stroller in there! Read More

2017 TOYOTA COROLLA

Hmmmmm… The Toyota Corolla! It was not going to win me over!!! If I hadn’t been a designer in my previous life I may not have been so offended by Toyota’s use of fonts! And if I hadn’t grown up in the 80s I may not have shuddered every time I used the shiny silver plastic gear stick that was a definite replica of my first computer joystick!! Read More

2017 ISUZU MU-X

The MU-X would definitely be on my list as a contender in the battle for best BabyDrive! Let’s find out why… Read More

2017 ISUZU D-MAX LS-T

The Isuzu D-Max would be my vehicle of choice to cross the Simpson Desert but I wouldn’t choose it to do my weekly shopping! Read More

2017 Audi Q2 1.4 TFSI Design

Few people I’m sure would consider the Audi Q2 as their main family car, but how did it stack up when it was put through our tests and driven as our family car for a week? Read More

2017 Mitsubishi Outlander LS

The Mitsubishi Outlander is available as a five and seven-seater, and we tested the five-seat LS version to see just how BabyDrive friendly this SUV really is! Our first impressions of this model were how seriously spacious it is both in the front and back, although we could only fit two child seats across the back row Read More

2017 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport

On the face of it, the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport is a spacious, family-friendly seven-seat SUV. But it comes with just one top tether, that isn’t on the same seat that has ISOFix, and you have to buy and fit the others yourself! Because top tether anchors are in the ceiling, third-row passengers have straps in their faces and it’s impossible to get into the third row if you have a couple of child seats fitted in the second row!

2017 RENAULT KOLEOS INTENS

The Koleos is a very good looking SUV, on paper and in the flesh! Boasting all the gadgets, a seven-inch touchscreen, sat-nav, reversing camera, keyless entry and start, rear parking sensors, heated front seats and soooo much more including a five-year warranty and all at an amazing price! But is all this too good to be true? We have got to find out if this new SUV is as good a BabyDrive as it promises to be!! Read More
