What alternatives should I consider to a used Citroën Grand C4 Picasso MPV?
Big seven-seat MPVs have been falling in popularity of late, with customers defecting to trendy SUVs instead. However, the Ford S-Max and Galaxy still offer bigger families practical seven-seat motoring without you having to resort to something with a high ride height or four-wheel drive. The S-Max is the sportier of the two, with the more squared-off design of the Galaxy offering the most interior versatility.
If you don’t wish to spend quite as much, then take a look at the Renault Grand Scenic. It’s not much cop to drive, but it is very safe, has plenty of oddments storage and a range of very economical diesel engines.
