Diesel Grandis costs from £19,699

Diesel versions of the Mitsubishi Grandis seven-seater MPV are now available, with prices starting at £19,699.

The 134bhp 2.0-litre diesel version of the people-carrier is £1200 more expensive than its slower, less economical petrol-powered stablemate.

Combined fuel consumption is improved by 13mpg to 43mpg, while performance is significantly improved and emissions are down. This means company car users will pay £552 less per year.

Despite the big gain in fuel-efficiency, owners can only expect to pay off the diesel’s premium after around 35,000 miles.

Specification levels are identical to the petrol, with the entry-level Classic getting front, side and curtain airbags, climate control, keyless entry and alarm, alloy wheels, MP3-compatible CD player and electric door mirrors.

Equippe models cost from £21,599 and add stability and traction control, twin sunroofs, cruise control and a 10-disc CD autochanger.

Elegance versions cost from £23,099 and include leather upholstery, while the top-of-the-range Warrior is priced from £23,699. It includes a DVD entertainment system, larger 18-inch alloy wheels and aluminium and chrome detailing.
