We need a family car for six - what do you recommend?

We have a seven year old Hyundai i800 which is used predominantly for holiday trips at home and in Europe. We have four teenagers and carry up to six bikes on a towbar carrier and inside. The car is not particularly comfortable and is now starting to cost money. What would be your recommendations for replacing it bearing in mind we live in Scotland and the Hyundai has never performed well in snow and ice?

We'd recommend the Toyota Proace Verso. It's got lots of space and comes with five-year warranty, so it ought to be reliable. Alternatively consider the Ford Tourneo Connect. It might be worth fitting winter tyres to either these to help in the snow. Or look at the Volkswagen Caravelle - you can get a four-wheel-drive version, but it's expensive.
