I really need help to choose the next right car for my family (me, wife and seven-year-old twin boys). I'm currently driving the Ford Focus (2007). No complaints, but do feel that newer and bigger one would be ideal. My latest shortlist is: Ford Grand C-Max, Toyota Verso and Peugeot 5008. I'm reluctant to spend too much money on power (i.e. big motor capacity etc.) and prefer to use it on comfort elsewhere.
As I'm current a customer of Ford I have to say that its offer is financially the best one out of these three at the moment. Would you recommend Grand C-Max or do you suggest to turn my attention elsewhere? Anything good/bad I should take note of with Grand C-Max?

In terms of the amount of metal that you get for your money then it is really hard to look beyond the Peugeot 5008 because it is a massive car and really nice to put together. It is much bigger than the two other models that you mentioned. However the Grand C-Max is simply the best to drive in its class and if you don't need your MPV to be massive then this could be the way to go. The Verso is good too, but doesn't really have the class of either the Ford or the Peugeot. Twins can take lots of stuff with them I imagine, so you might want the bigger vehicle, but for me right now, I'd pick the C-Max.Answered by: Complete Car Adviser
