I know we're fans of the mini-van here (it seems) but I do want to reiterate that the family road trip is not a frequent occurrence. My girls are 11 and 15 and we've done two. What we do though (currently) is load up the car to the gills and drive about 100km (plus a ferry ride) to my parents place by the beach 3-5 times a year or 130km to Whistler (but it is less loaded then).

The Accord can accommodate our stuff space-wise but I was worried about overloading it. It seemed one of you guys thinks that we weren't OVERloading it though, we just just loading it to the max.

Then there is the upcoming Tesla 3 which may not be as much of a wimp as I thought.

What I am taking from this conversation though is that if I were interested in SUVs I should really slap myself in the face and stop it. I liked the look of that Mazda but all-in-all I should really consider a mini-van. The idea of driving a mini-van daily makes me cringe though, but that's just marketing. I'll actually have to try one some time.

Thanks for all your input so far and if you come up with anything else I'm all ears.
