    Price:  £25,945

    13 October 2008 by Colin Overland

    Before the current Mondeo arrived, its styling, its cabin technology and its chassis were previewed in the latest version of Ford’s biggest MPV, the Galaxy. And if you think the supersized Mondeo is...

  • Fiat Fiorino Qubo 1.4 (2008) review

    Price:  £9,995

    15 September 2008 by Jesse Crosse

    Fiat reckons its Qubo (that's a bastardisation of the Italian for 'cube') might fulfil a new market segment, as the funky and stylish answer to young, cash-strapped urban and suburban buyers looking...

  • Renault Scenic ZEV H2 prototype (2008) review

    27 June 2008 by Richard Aucock

    Renault, that so traditional and straight-laced of car companies. It makes sensible family cars and MPVs for sensible folk. The Regie doesn’t do revolution lightly. But, for the past decade, it’s...

  • Dodge Journey 2.0 CRD (2008) review

    Price:  £18,000

    08 May 2008 by Christopher Hubbard

    The Dodge Journey has a tough job on its hands. The MPV sector has been going through a bit of a shake-up recently. People don't want to drive around in minibuses any more, yet still want space for...

  • Ford C-Max 2.0 TDCi Titanium (2008) review

    Price:  £19,320

    28 March 2008 by Alex Grant

    Ford’s C-Max has always looked a little dowdy and functional when compared to its sister S-Max. The latter has shrugged off its size with sharp angles and a car-like drive, and shot off forecourts as...

  • Renault Grand Modus 1.2 TCE front three-quarter

    Renault Grand Modus 1.2 TCE 100 (2007) review

    Price:  £11,850

    14 December 2007 by Peter Burgess

    You have to hand it to Renault. After the success of the original Espace, it didn’t sit on its laurels. The Scenic that followed had an even greater impact and had the kudos of being a truly original...

  • Chrysler Grand Voyager TD (2008) review

    Price:  £18,000

    13 November 2007 by James Foxall

    Is this an all-new model then? Yes. Chrysler has lengthened the wheelbase and claims to have made at least 30 major improvements to its popular people carrier. The most important of these is a...

  • Peugeot Expert Tepee (2007) review

    Price:  £22,557

    26 September 2007 by Tim Pollard

    The Tepee? Has Peugeot hung out with Skoda for too long? Too many scout jokes for my liking! Yes, yes. Ignore the silly name, and you have another of the growing breed of vans being geared up for...

  • Daihatsu Materia (2007) review

    Price:  £10,995

    09 August 2007 by Tim Pollard

    This looks like a Japanese-market mini or a US Scion... Bingo! That's exactly what the Materia is. It's sold in Japan as both a Toyota and Daihatsu, and it's not even new to mainland Europe, where...

    Skoda Roomster Scout 1.9 TDi (2007) review

    Price:  £13,070

    07 June 2007 by Kyle Fortune

    Dib dib dib, the Roomster’s gone scouting… Yep, Skoda’s quirky-looking mini-MPV dons a neckerchief and becomes the Roomster Scout. The ‘transformation’ includes a hike in ride height – the Scout...

  • Kia Carens 2.0 CRDi (2007) review

    Price:  £14,045

    31 January 2007 by Chris Chilton

    So it's a Kia. And an MPV Okay, so it's not exactly high on your lottery win wish list but Kia is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with in car circles thanks to cars like the Picanto and its...

  • VW Touran 1.9 TDi (2006) review

    Price:  £17,982

    24 November 2006 by Richard Yarrow

    I think 'new' might be stretching the truth a bit. The front lights are clearly new, but what else has changed? In truth, not a great deal. Those lamps have been reshaped to resemble those of the Eos...

  • Seat Altea XL 1.9 TDi (2006) review

    Price:  £15,250

    16 October 2006 by Mike Roberts

    Altea XL. Sounds like a car for the larger person. What’s it about? Not to be too technical it’s basically an Altea with a bigger boot. And that’s it? Well, it’s the same as the Altea up to the...

  • Citroen C4 Picasso 1.6 HDi (2006) review

    Price:  £16,795

    20 September 2006 by Richard Aucock

    That looks a fancy bit of modern art. Very funny. But you’re right – it’s the latest success from C4/C6 designer Jean-Pierre Ploué. And a crucial new seven-seat compact MPV. Thanks to romping parents,...

  • Renault Espace 2.0dCi 175 (2006) review

    Price:  £33,150

    18 September 2006 by Dimitri Pesin

    This Espace doesn't look very different – what's new? The Espace gets revised diesel engines for 2007, ensuring all now meet the Euro4 emissions standard. Quality takes a step forward, and there...

  • Mercedes R63 AMG (2006) review

    Price:  £74,115

    07 August 2006 by Ben Whitworth

    My, that looks a bit of a beast! You're not wrong there. Mercedes new R63 AMG, which tops Mercedes' new range of six-seat R-models, is just what you'd expect it to be. Vast, fast, luxurious and with...

  • Skoda Roomster 1.4 (2006) review

    Price:  £11,505

    31 July 2006 by Ben Whitworth

    Is that really a Skoda? It sure is. The Roomster is the standard bearer for a new range of design-led Skodas, which means next year's new Fabia will be far more interesting than the current model, and...

  • Ford Galaxy 2.0 (2006) review

    Price:  £19,495

    28 July 2006 by Angus Fitton

    A new Galaxy. Where does it fit into Ford's burgeoning array of MPVs? It's quite simple really. The Galaxy is Ford's top-end people carrier, a genuine seven seater with a tall roof, heaps of cabin...
