I went from a Gt to a 159 (via a 166 for a year) and have to say that the Gt is very practical even with an 8 year old. The down sides are only 3 doors, no way to fit a roof box/rack and cant fit a cycle carrier to the rear hatch.
The 159 saloon doesn't have such a practical boot configuration (my seats do fold down) against the Gt's hatch, you can fit a roof rack to a 159 and a cycle carrier can also be fitted to the boot, plus its got two extra doors.
That said I would like to go back to another Gt as they are much better cars IMO (other opinions are available)
