What car would you suggest for a young driver with a large dog?

My daughter (20 yrs) is looking for the a larger car to replace her Peugeot 108 to suitability transport her large dog while keeping insurance low.

We are considering cars like Ford Focus Estate, Ford Kuga, Peugeot 2008, Kia Sportage, Seat Leon Estate, Volkswagen Golf Estate, Volkswagen Passat, Toyota RAV4, Nissan Qashqai, Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer, Dacia Jogger.

Of the cars you have suggested, we would recommend the Dacia Jogger, as it will likely be one of the cheapest to run as well as having a hardy interior which will stand up to regular journeys with her dog. She may also wish to consider the Skoda Octavia, which has a larger boot than the Golf and Leon estates but is a similar size.

It's a genuine bargain. Seven seats as standard. A big boot if used as a five-seater. Frugal 1.0-litre engine plus excellent hybrid. Dacia performs well in the Honest John Satisfaction Index.
