Our overall rating:
So, that lovely two-seater convertible bit the dust years ago, after you got married and needed the cash for the deposit on a house. Then you bought that sensible family hatchback, which was fine for trips to the dump and carting the nipper around in, but when the family continued to grow that had to go, too. Now you have a troop of kids to ferry about and need lots of seats. Are we describing you? If so, have you ever considered a Mercedes V-Class?
The theory is that being based essentially on a van, the V-Class offers even more space than regular large MPVs, models including the Ford Galaxy and Seat Alhambra. And Mercedes isn’t the only manufacturer to throw some seats in one of its commercial vehicles either: there’s the Ford Tourneo Custom, Peugeot Traveller and VW Caravelle.
The question is, if you’re looking for a car capable of carrying you and your many loved ones, is the V-Class your best bet? Read on to find out.
