    Default Which double cab?

    Guys we will need to look at a new/used double cab next year.
    I currently have the NP300 which we will need to trade in on something bigger.
    My requirements are simple. I need the double cab with the most space in the back.

    I just had a look at the Ranger, Scorpio and the P-series.
    The P-series wins here hands down. It does look as if the Isuzu also has a fair amount of space.
    Any other considerations?

    To give you an idea. My 2 boys aged 13 and 10 and a baby seat needs to fit in the back comfortably.
    The 13 year old one is already bigger than your average human end the 10 year old one is on his way there.

    Or should I forget at the double cab for now and rather go SUV?

    Just get any of the 7-seater SUV's. Been there, done that exercise. Send me a bottle of Whisky in 3 years time.

    more than two kids = a 7 seater suv or mini van.

    especially if one is still in a car seat.

    Choice is easy, AMAROK or if you go suv, then a secondhand pajero.

    Jokes aside. The amarok is wide, very wide, and has isofix for the baby

    I'll have to recommend an Amarok.
    The Amarok has very little leg room and not much going for it in the back.
    It is basically a nice engine and gearbox with very little else.

    I wouldn't recommend it for larger families, the spoeg spoeg Ford is much nicer for second row passengers.

    My wife is still cross with me for selling her Fortuner years ago, if I were you I would look at Fortuner/Everest/Pajero sport with kids the extra space makes it a hard package to beat at the price.

    If he picks the new Pajero sport he can at least keep some man card points.
