What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For It seats seven, is reasonably well equipped and has sliding side doors

Against It has limited safety equipment, the handling is poor and the styling is bland

Verdict It's spacious, but you can get better all-rounders for the same sort of money

Go for… The diesel is easily the better engine - there's only one trim

Avoid… The breathless petrol, despite the fact it gets traction control

  • 1. Twin sliding rear doors make it particularly easy to get in and out when parked alongside another car
  • 2. It's worth checking that recall work on front foglights in 2003 has been carried out
  • 3. You get twin front and side airbags, but no rear or curtain 'bags
  • 4. The rear seats can be removed to leave a van-like load area, but they're heavy
  • 5. Go for the turbodiesel - it's strong, refined and easily the best choice
