I have a 6 months baby and planning my family to grow for at least one, maybe two new members in the following years. My current car (a C-segment) broke down recently, and I'm looking for a new one.
From the (short) experience I have, I know several things I missed in the old car: more space in the rear seats to fit comfortably an adult and 1 or 2 car-seats, a bigger boot/trunk (the baby pram/stroller's + carrycot/portacrib® simply occupied all of it).
After my baby was born I got surprised of the many things we needed which I didn't expect to be useful before becoming a parent. I'd like to avoid that lack of knowledge before getting the new car. What will I (probably) need in a car for the following 5 or 10 years? What is your experience?
I know this question is highly localization biased, as legal and social requirements for having childens in a car are not the same at (e.g.) Democratic Republic of Congo as in Luxembourg. I live in Europe, but (I expect) answers should also work in other similar areas.
