What alternatives should I consider to a used Ford B-Max hatchback?

The rear doors of the Vauxhall Meriva open in the opposite direction to the front ones to give you better access to child seats in the rear. It has plenty of efficient diesel engines to keep running costs low and standard equipment was generous.

The award-winning Citroën C3 Picasso has a bigger boot than the B-Max and suffers from less road noise on the motorway, making it slightly more relaxing to drive. It's also really good value for a spacious five-seat family MPV.
