Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Volkswagen Touran MPV?

For a time, the MPV sector was booming, and cars like the Touran seemed to be about to take over the world. Then, not long after, the SUV boom started, and buyers switched their affections to that class of car instead. However, in the interim period, there were plenty of rivals to the Touran launched.

The Citroen Grand C4 Picasso is a spacious and practical car with superb visibility, a commanding driving position and a range of punchy and economical engines. It's one of our favourite MPVs, even if its ride quality is a little below par, and the rear seats are fiddly to fold.
