What alternatives should I consider to a used Vauxhall Meriva MPV?

The Ford B-Max is, like the Meriva, an oddity not often seen. But for those looking for a compact but practical car that's reasonably good to drive and fairly cheap to own and run, it’s worth taking a look. The B-Max also comes with sliding rear doors so, like the Meriva, has its own stylistic quirk.

The Citroën C3 Picasso is good to drive, practical and spacious inside. It’s cute, too, which will appeal to many, and the car comes with a range of efficient engines.

  • Neat appearance
  • Refined and practical interior
  • Reasonable performance/economy balance
  • Fidgety ride
