We are looking at getting a 7-8 seater. We a keen on a car that is not too big.
What are the key features we should be looking for?
We are thinking about a Toyota Wish, Mazda Premacy, Toyota Zio, or Toyota Prius. Any clear winners from those, or others we should consider?


Hi there,
These ones are popular choices and not reported to be very unreliable.
Honda Stream is another popular choice to add to the mix.
However, as they are Japanese imports they don't have safety ratings and there is generally no access to safety specs, so you have to look at what safety items you want as a must-have and then check each car for them.
