What alternatives should I consider to a used Toyota Prius+ estate?

By virtue of being a hybrid MPV seating seven the Prius+ has few rivals. However, it’s worth considering the straight petrol and diesel-powered versions of the Ford S-Max. This is a better car to drive than most MPVs, with a comfortable ride and plenty of room for seven. Set against that are comparatively high CO2 emissions, and sat-nav is an extra in most trim versions.

Others to consider include the Volkswagen Touran, available with petrol or diesel engines, which is good to drive, has decent economy and a spacious interior, and the Vauxhall Zafira Tourer, which comes with a classy interior, decent space for passengers and luggage and is well built.
