Hi Ladies

Wondering if any of you can assist. Hubby and I are trying to find a car for me with enough boot space for a pram (we bought a Chelino Travel System). I am hoping to still have a Hatchback though. Any ideas? what are you ladies currently driving?

Uhmmm - perhaps you can state your price range / budget that you are working with?

Hi
When my first son was born we also bought a chelino travel system and it actually fitted quite nicely in our VW Polo. But then there is not really space for much more :)
We upgraded to a Toyota Fortuner - great for all the luggage!!

Oops. I'd say about R140 000 - used car.

Thanks Hantielab - I am currently lookinng at the Polo Vivo and Ford Figo.

Hubby drives a BMW - which is heavy on petrol. That's why i have always had the smaller lighter car. So unfortunately a fortuner is out of the question for me :(

The VW polo has an awesome boot space... The Figo not so much...

VW definitely a good choice...

I had a BMW 1 series with first born, fitted the Chelino Travel System nicely too... With second born i got the VW Tiguan because we got the Phil and Teds double Pram which is quite big - what an awesome mommy van! Spacious and comfy but not as big as other SUV's and the TDI is so economical on diesel... 5.3kms per 100l.

With the Chelion systems you get the Isofix bases which are a must have - it makes everything so much easier!

Hubby drives a big bakkie so i hear you on the second smaller car... If you can diesel is the way to go. It might be slightly more expensive at times but definitely lasts so much longer!

All the best with your decision hey! :heart:
