Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

So it’s big, decent to drive and – cheap-feeling interior aside – reasonably good to sit in. But you’re still unlikely to consider buying a Combo Life unless it’ll save you a heap of cash.

Well, there’s good news here, too, because the standard five-seater is around £1000 cheaper than an equivalent Grandland X SUV, despite being much, much bigger inside. Compare the seven-seat version to conventional MPVs, such as the Ford S-Max or Volkswagen Touran, and the Combo Life looks incredible value for money.

Overview

De rigueur it ain’t, but the Vauxhall Combo Life delivers more space per pound than just about any other new car

  • Huge inside
  • Cheaper than most conventional MPVs
  • Comfortable ride
  • Very low-rent interior
  • Looks like a van
  • Not quite as clever as it is big
