Hi guys,

I'm looking to get a larger car that will be able to accommodate the increase in luggage that comes with a new baby.

I currently have an 07 plate focus hatch so I'm thinking about either a Mondeo hatchback or a Focus estate. Both have similar size boot space in terms of litre capacity but I think the flat back window on the focus estate would mean loading the boot high will be more of an option on that one. My concern is that if we have another kid in a couple of years I might be changing my car again which is an expense and faff I'd rather do without.

I feel I don't need a bigger car, I just need more space in the boot for luggage (if that makes any sense!)

Can anyone pass any comments on either of these cars that will help me to make a decision?

Mondeos a focus estate will be fine for up to 2 kids plus stuff you have to take with you. A focus hatch will be more than suitable for just 1 child

Go for a mondeo estate, gives you some future proofing
