Which used Hyundai Trajet MPV should I buy?

There are two engines - a 2.0-litre petrol and a 2.0-litre turbodiesel, which is badged CRTD. The diesel has 111bhp, and the petrol 139bhp, but the diesel is stronger in everyday driving thanks to an extra 54lb ft of pulling power.

You'll need to work the petrol engine hard to get the Trajet up to speed and keep it there, whereas the diesel offers decent mid-range acceleration and is quieter.

That said, this is essentially a budget family car, so the petrol still makes most sense. It cost £1000 less than the 2.0 CRTD when new and a used example will save you a similar amount. The petrol is also reasonably fuel-efficient, if not quite a match for the diesel.

Two trims are available, with even the entry GSI cars (our favourites) getting air-con, a CD player, heated and electrically adjustable door mirrors and four airbags. The higher SX cars also come with sat-nav, but security provisions could be better on both.
