What's the used Hyundai Trajet MPV like?

The Trajet is bigger than many of its rivals, so it can seat seven adults in comfort. Both leg- and headroom are generous, and there's a good-sized boot, even with all the seats in place. The five rearmost seats can be removed when you need maximum load space, but they're heavy to lift.

The driving position could also be better. The seat can be adjusted for height, but the steering wheel has no reach adjustment. Still, there are lots of cubby-holes, and most of the buttons are chunky and easy to use.

Unfortunately, the Trajet's drive falls short of the best European and Japanese MPVs. Its ride is overly firm around town and becomes bouncy at speed. The steering is light, but doesn't offer enough feedback, and there's a lot of body lean around corners.

Refinement is also disappointing. The engines are noisy under acceleration and, although they're quieter at speed, they're still not what you'd call quiet.
