Kathrine, I agonised over this too, although only for 4 (5 if you include the dog). For everyday use should be ok, depends on ages of the children and what you're used to. I think you'd struggle to get 3 children, a week's shopping and a pushchair in it. For older children the problem may be rear leg room, not great. A V70 would suit better perhaps. Still I've ordered mine 'cos it looks and performs great and if it proves too small for weekend trips and holidays then I'll just have to get a roof box! Good luck..
