Hyundai Matrix MPV
  • 1. We'd go for the 1.8 engine - it's a little quieter on long trips and doesn't have to work so hard as the others
  • 2. There's plenty of interior space, thanks to the box-like shape
  • 3. You can expect quite a few creaks and rattles from the cheap plastics used throughout
  • 4. The rear seats can take three, but two is best, and kneeroom is tight for adults
  • 5. All-round vision is very good, as is the driving position
