Default Best 5 seater?

Hi,

i have a family of 5 (16,14,12) and am looking for a good 5 seater car that can fit us comfortably. Due to company guidelines, the car must be under 130 g/km. (anything 1-20 more will be fine as well)

I am currently looking at the BMW 5 series touring and mercedes E shooting brake. My budget is not a concern, so any good 5 seater will do

Ps.
no audis, as they are not part of the company lease deal

you're gonna have to give us a little more criteria than 5 seats, no audis.


I'm also not familiar with what your g/km means?

Across the pond terminology for MPG.

Nope, that would be a CO2 emissions rating.

Default criteria

Criteria:
5 seater, should fit 5 people comfortably
Co2 emissions should be under 130 g/km (a diesel is fine)
I would prefer an SUV such as the bmw x5 or mercedes ML but the emissions are too high.
I am currently looking at the bmw 5 series touring and mercedes e shooting brake, so something along those lines would work.
Prefer a large boot space
Budget: no real budget just not extremely exspensive

Diesel x5 isn't an option?
