Green Awards 2012


Our best green MPV of 2012 must prove that transporting the family around needn’t be a chore, or unnecessarily harmful to the planet.
Practicality is crucial, but this shouldn’t be at the expense of other qualites. Our favourite green MPV will also be good to drive and desirable.
Affordable ownership costs are vital. Having a family can be a strain on resources, but choosing an MPV with impressive green credentials helps to cut costs.
