A competitively priced and practical MPV, but its best rivals are more sophisticated to drive and have higher quality interiors

get the best price

Trim: 4

At the top of the range sits 4, which adds a larger touchscreen and a panoramic sunroof. It looks pricey next to rivals though, so we’d avoid it.

Engine: 1.7 CRDi ISG [139]

The diesels make a better choice than the petrol, because they have more pull low down - perfect for shifting people and luggage. Company drivers will want the lower powered version for its better CO2 emissions, but everyone else should choose the gutsier 139bhp model.
