I'm looking to buy a medium size SUV for the purpose of carting a couple of Labradors to and from the beach. I'm thinking of something like a Nissan X- trail or a Suzuki vitara. One of the considerations is the room in the hatch when the seats are folded down. Can anyone recommend one over the other or suggest a simulate vehicle? I'm hoping one of them has up - folding rear seats as to give even more room.
