Craving a new car

My hubbie wants a new car I am more interested in the safety ratings whereas he is more interested in how fancy it looks!  He keeps going round in circles picking one out then changing his mind…

To be honest as long as its got a high rating on Euro NCAP I would be more than happy for him to buy one.  My chief concern is our safety I do not mind if we are not in the most stylish of cars.  Well safety and making sure they have more space between them, in the super mini they are far too close, within easy grabbing and wrestling distance unfortunately! 

Also we have a tiny teeny boot, so we usually have to overflow our packing all around the car, so my poor feet are usually cramped in a funny position to fit more bags in!  So safety and space and I would be well accommodated for.  Hubbie on the other hand is having grand ideas above his station (or our finances anyway!).  I guess a little dreaming never harmed anyone.  But a car without adequate safety measures might!  So I am not compromising on that, I have put my foot down and said it has to be at least 80% (but ideally 90%) in the scores; the last thing I want is for us to have a bump mind!

We travel a lot with events to attend and I want to do what I can to help protect us.  I guess if it came down to it at least there are plenty of companies to assist with whiplash injury compensation but to be honest I think prevention is better than cure and getting one of the safest cars from 2013 would reassure me more than anything else.

I just wish I could persuade him that the Skoda Octavia looks pretty good; its ratings are quite impressive.  But he is finding it hard to shake off the old image of the Skoda!  If you know of a good family car to help us on our quest suggestions in the comments are welcomed!  I think hubbie is still pining for the RAV4 from our test drive most of all...
