    seems like a squeeze with 3 kids (young adults) and bikes etc all the way to south of france, i think you need bigger car, we have two small kids and drive to Austria and its FULL!

    Crispin has a point because big as the A6 is I also think you need something bigger. What sort of budget do you have ?

    TBH 7 seaters eat into load space so I do not think they would be any better unless you go for a Merc/VW mini bus style vehicle.

    well i had a similar issues a few years ago and i ended up with a toyota granvia (jap import) because you had 7 seats and a boot or 4/5 seats and bigger boot or in 30 mins could take seats out and had a van.
    being an import it had all the bells and whistles including electric curtains!!!

    no spare wheel in Smax just can of **** that will not fix the tyre and render it useless. Great idea for a car but if they think a family would not want a spare then ford are stupid!

    We had 4 bikes on the roof of our A6 saloon this summer, no problems at all. Leaves boot free for opening and closing....

    I didnt know that buddy sounds pretty stupid but believe it or not I was thinking about your post earlier.I think you should go for the A6 I mean why buy the car you dont want just for 1 or 2 holidays a year and I guess you could get a roofbox like this.
