my bro looking for a replacement for his car
getting married soon and wants something to take to his farm
they will be taking 5-7 people each time and need space for bags also
we saw the endeavour today while we went to test drive the 1.3 anniv but it lacked underthigh support
the CR-V too wasnt very comfortable so they are out of the question but if he doesnt like the remaining and needs only a SUV i guess its gonna be the CR-V

CR-V if you can manage a bit more. From the above list, it's the Forester.

for 5-7 people and luggage, i suggest endeavour
i spent this entire weekend with a endeavour, and i wasn't disappointed at all
it isn't exactly underpowered! unless u plan to put it sideways!

has loads of space, and is a ford, which makes it more reliable than any tata!

if size isn't an issue, then endeavour is best bet for ur bro!

Endeavour dude without a doubt... i have one and just both another one so u can tell how happy i am with the car...yes the drivers seat is abit low but the seat problem can be solved man by putting seat cover or extra foam or some shit i am plannin to do the same ... u cant rule the car out coz of the seat factor thats the last thing u should think coz that can be fixed even outside ...Go for it u will love it

P.S- Personally i dont put forrestor in this catergory its not an SUV its a freakin station wagon man.

well guys we went to the yhonda showroom before posting this and the ford showroom
he found the cr-v to be a bit uncomfortable as in seating posture and the endeavour lacked underthigh support
hje liked the endeavour but the seats were a let down so if there is any remedy please do tell as was looking forward to the endeavour
the car has to seat 5-7 people so i will look at the forester and try to convince him
i will also convince him to go for an endeavour and cr-v drive thoughlets see how he likes it

Lambo - forget the chevy forrester if thr are 5-7 ppl to seat.

i think even the CR-V seats just 5 ....so if seating is a priority the ford endeavor it is.

the CR-v will be better to drive than the endeavor

anyways - check out both , take a test drive and decide

cheers

Hey,

The Forester will easily seat five - two in the front, and three in the back. And ALL FIVE have individual seatbelts. And the Forester will be even more fun to drive than the CR-V

So, if seating is the priority, go for the Endeavour. If handling is the priority, choose the Forester.

(No apologies Forester fan here)
