Vicar needs a new car. Short wife likes higher seating position. 250 miles a week. Skoda yeti or...?

Our 02 Reg Scenic needs replacing after years of hassle free driving over 100k miles. My wife likes the higher seating position (she's 5'2") and a glass roof. I need it for a 25 mile each way commute and weekend/holiday trips (Dordogne this year). Two older teenagers to seat as well. I've had a look at a Yeti but wonder what you recommend? I should say that I usually drive just below the speed limits so comfort over speed as a preference.

Lots of choices. Yeti yes, but you might find the 1.2TSI 105 underpowered for a long holiday trip. You could consider a Ford C-Max 1.6 EcoBoost, a Citroen C4 Picasso, a Toyota Verso, the forthcoming Golf SV (testing this week) or another Scenic. Smaller, a Hyundai ix20 (ix20 not i20) might do the job, but probably too small.

Unique styling. Solid build. Excellent petrol engines including frugal yet peppy 1.2 TSI. Good space in the back. Frugal 1.6 TDI Greenline can return 60mpg+. Much loved model.
