WATCH: An epic battle of the sexes. In a car.

It’s a longstanding battle of the sexes — and we’ve put it to the test.

With Mamamia Women’s Network writer Jo Abi in the mum corner and founder Alborz Fallah in the dad corner, we put these parents through their paces to find out who is best behind the wheel.

So when it comes to installing a baby seat, reverse parking and packing the car boot, who do you think came out on top?

Spoiler alert: one of the challenges came close to breaking their spirits.


Are you the better driver/parker/boot packer in your relationship?

A real crowd pleaser

Anyone who’s ever tried getting a family of eight around town knows it can be a circus, which is why we designed the All New Kia Carnival.

Designed with space, practicality and safety in mind, the 8-seat Kia Carnival comes fully built with a 3-point seat belt, providing security and assurance for your children’s safety seats. Blending the driving dynamics of an SUV with the genuine space of an 8-seat van, the Kia Carnival is a truly multi-purpose vehicle.

With the assurance of Australia’s only 7 Year Unlimited Kilometre Warranty it also means no unexpected surprises.
