hubbie this was a dream come true getting to head off on a #Route125 adventure driving
the rather fabulous Toyota RAV4. The
boys were equally enthusiastic “I want to stay in this car forever”. I could not believe my luck either, when you
are used to travelling in a Nissan Micra the chance to actually stretch out
your legs is a welcome luxury!!!
Eldest summed it up with “hundreds of leg space”, yes it
certainly was roomy, I also loved the vantage point, and we seemed to be
sitting higher up and had a better view of the road and the world around
us! Which helps if your setting off on
family adventures, you need to embrace every view and every detail…
hubbie is ruined for having done the test drive; he is now sulking desperately,
he returned to our car with a heavy heart!
He is missing all the high-tec features the most, the built in SAT-NAV,
the electronic boot, being told when to shift gear and controlling the drivers
seat electronically! He adores gadgets
and this car was laden with anything he could possibly need and more. We did have the model with all the extra’s
to drive mind, it was priced at around £29k, but to see the pure delight in his
face it would be worth us starting to save or look at payment plans.
the practical mum I was more interested in the boot space! It was huge, when we holiday we become even
more cramped as you can imagine. I
think the boot is almost as big as the car we own…
boys were all about having their own windows they could operate. At the moment, they have tiny windows that
do not open on our car, so they were in their element! Youngest after realising he could control
his own window “I can see the birds dance they like our music”. What I did like though was you could also
lock the window from the front, so if your children are being silly hanging
their arms out or at the stage they want to lob stuff out of the window for
kicks (gosh I do not miss not having a toddler anymore) you can lock their
window till they behave!
family adventure was at Greenwood Forest Park; we had a lovely time thank you
we returned to the car park after our day out I felt a huge sense of pride that
was our car (even if only for the day!).
It just looks so impressive, commending a place on the road. It was a smooth drive, a surprisingly light
car to drive. Hubbie thought he would
be intimated driving a much bigger car to the one he is used to, but it was a
breeze. The big mirrors made seeing
around the car a simple and safe process and the reversing camera made
manoeuvring a bigger car easy!
kindly gave us a bloggers pack to take off on our journey, with a flask, some
lovely books, a game for the children and other useful bits and pieces.
