    Default Is Toyota Estima ( 2.4 liter engine) a good option to buy?

    Hello

    Just wanted to check if Toyota Estima 2.4 is ok to buy when considering driving on windy and hilly roads in NZ?

    I had been driving a Swift 1.2 with 5 people, and at certain roads especially with steep curves, it can only cruise at 30 KM / hour. and cars behind me becomes impatient.

    Or would an SUV be more a powerful car?

    During my trip to Queenstown, I hired a Mahindra XUV 500, which was good, its powerful on hilly roads... But it is less practical, means not enough space, no places to even keep my keys and phone etc.

    I drove Swift 1.2 with 5 people including myself. That was 4 adults and my 5 yr old child. My daughter was always irritated when she was put in the car because of no leg room and small space at the back seat.

    I am considering Estima 1.2 , 7 seater all because of it's space and practicality, and cost.

    There is also Estima with 3.4 liter engine, but I think the mileage per KM would be lower than 2.4 one.

    Not sure if I really need Estima 3.4 ... or 2.4 would be sufficient. We will be 2 adults and 1 child travelling with some luggage most of the time on long road trips.
