Which used Honda FR-V MPV should I buy?

The 1.7 petrol will be the least expensive to buy and has enough puff most of the time, but the 2.0 petrol is easier to find, and a more flexible, relaxed cruiser. These two petrols were replaced in early 2007 by a responsive, free-revving 1.8 during a mild face-lift (darker chrome grille, metal/carbon-like cabin trim rather than wood).

The 2.2 turbodiesel is worth considering for its extra low-down muscle. It's an excellent engine and sips fuel slowly, but you'll have to pay a lot more for the privilege of owning one rather than one of the petrols.
