The best MPV and people carrier deals
If you're in the market for a new car, naturally you want to get the best price possible. And the good news is that by buying through What Car?, you're guaranteed a great deal.
Many people are still understandably nervous about the prospect of going into a showroom and haggling with a salesman, though, which is why we launched What Car? New Car Buying, a free service that lets you browse through discounted new car deals online.
Today, we've rounded up the best deals on MPVs. Practicality is king in the MPV market, which has taken a hit as buyers have turned towards trendier SUVs. They still make a lot of sense for big families, however, offering bags of space for (usually) not much money.
These deals are all based on our Target Price – What Car?'s way of making sure you don't pay over the odds. It's set by our team of mystery shoppers, and represents a fair price for your car. You could save even more, however, by going through our New Car Buying service.
Simply click on the relevant deal to find out more about it, or call us on 03302 216207 and we will be happy to help.
