A few things to bear in mind. Stuff fills the space available. The more space you have, the more junk you'll put in the car. We could go away with young children in a Mazda 121 bubble car with no problems, and before that, a 3 cylinder Daihatsu Charade.
So would an Alfa 147 be suitable for family? Yes, you don't really need a waggon or a people mover. But you may have to pack carefully when going on holidays.
