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.
