Family planning
I am looking to upgrade my car and can't decide between a Toyota Verso, a Vauxhall Zafira or a Mazda 5. I have a 2 year old and an 11month old so safety is a must. What would you recommend?

Of these, the Toyota Verso 1.6 or 1.8 petrol Valvematic. And if you want an auto, the 1.8 petrol Valvematic CVT is the best. See test and video at:
www.honestjohn.co.uk/road_tests/index.htm?id=383 A new Mazda 5 has just been announced, so that should mean discounts on the current model. Don’t dismiss the excellent Ford S-Max and Peugeot 5008.
