What alternatives should I consider to a used Renault Grand Scenic MPV?

The Volkswagen Touran is nicer to drive than the Grand Scenic and its seats are a little more flexible in that they all fold flat on the floor. You will also find that it’s well equipped and has a sombre but well-finished interior, along with a range of economical petrol and diesel engines.

The Ford Grand C-Max has sliding rear doors that are a real boon in tight car parks. It also manages to be quite nice to drive, since it is based on a Focus. It’s deceptively spacious inside and the 1.0-litre Ecoboost engine is one to look out for, because it's a particularly willing engine, despite having only three cylinders.

Verdict

Safe, relatively spacious and with seven seats, the Renault Grand Scenic makes sense for families; shame the driving experience isn’t better

  • Safety
  • Economical diesel engines
  • Lots of storage
  • Flexibility of second-row seats
  • High running costs of larger engines
  • Fiddly stereo controls
