Chrysler revises its Grand Voyager
* New safety equipment * 10% cut in CO2 emissions * 10% better fuel economy...
The Chrysler Grand Voyager has received a series of revisions that cut emissions and improve fuel economy for diesel versions.
This means that diesel-engined examples will be cheaper to run, while all models will benefit from extra safety equipment and a new fascia.
Efficiencies save buyers 200
Models with the diesel engine now average 33.6mpg an improvement of 10% while their CO2 emissions fall by 10%. As a result, they drop into a lower road tax band tax band L to K saving buyers 200 in the first year.
Inside, the revised models get a new black fascia with silver detailing, as well as active anti-whiplash head restraints on the front seats. This is in addition to the existing stability control, tyre-pressure monitoring and front- and all-row side-curtain airbags.
Also standard across the range are Stow n Go seats that fold into the floor, powered sliding side doors, and three-zone climate control. Flagship Limited models add rain-sensitive wipers and electric operation on the third row of seats.
Among the options are a dual-screen DVD system, as well as a touchscreen and voice-controlled navigation system incorporating a 30GB hard drive that can store more than 4000 songs.
Trims remain the same
As before, the Grand Voyager comes in three trims LX, Touring and Limited and with a choice of 2.8-litre diesel or 3.8-litre V6 petrol engines, both paired with a six-speed automatic gearbox.
Prices for diesel models run from 26,995 for the LX to 34,995 for the Limited model, while the V6 petrol-engined model (available in Limited trim only) costs 35,495.
