2018 Honda CR-V VTi-S

The Honda CR-V is a mid-size SUV that I think is definitely worth a look at! I discovered in the week I had it, that it ticks a lot of BabyDrive boxes that you rarely find all in one car. Read More

2017 Kia Sorento

We drove the previous Kia Sorento before having our daughter and I remember being very impressed back then! I was eager to give this seven-seat SUV a good run now that we are a family with child seats, strollers and equipment to see how it would fare as a BabyDrive! Let’s find out what we thought… Read More



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

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

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



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
