What alternatives should I consider to a used Citroën Grand C4 Picasso MPV?
The Grand C4 Picasso is admirably spacious, but there are some that are even bigger. The Ford Galaxy is an extremely practical and thoroughly capable people-carrier easily up to the task of transporting seven people smartly from one location to the next. In fact, so good is it that it’s almost the de facto choice for taxis on the airport run.
The Seat Alhambra matches the Galaxy for size, both inside and out, with a simple engine range of one petrol and one diesel, plus a choice of handsomely kitted trims. It rides and handles well, especially for a car of this type and size, and its space and practicality are superb.
Consider also the Volkswagen Sharan, which shares much with the Alhambra, although it is a little more pricey new, which is bound to reflect on its used values.
The VW Touran is not as large an MPV as the others here, but it’s a classy product that is well made and great to drive. There’s room for seven, even if those rearmost two passengers won’t have as much room to lounge as they would in the others.
