MPVs are hugely popular these days and seem to have room for almost everyone.
Nowadays even the biggest of family can find a car to fit it thanks to the range of seven seaters on the market today. Here’s Diesel Car’s Top 3
Citroen C4 Grand Picasso
Citroen are today the grand masters of the MPV. Since the arrival of the Xsara Picasso the French manufacturer has come to dominate the sector with a range of well-received family wagons. Its newest, the C4 Grand Picasso has been warmly welcomed too. It looks great, it’s well equipped and it’s environmentally friendly too with a range of diesels that emit as little as 110g/km of Co2.
Ask any parent and they’ll tell you one thing about their kids. They cost a fortune. There’s no two ways about it, children are expensive and if you’re looking for a seven-seater chances are your budget is stretched pretty tight. Thankfully then there’s cars like the SsangYong Turismo. Perfect for the cost-conscious, prices start at just under £18k. Lots of little ones to move but not lots of cash? The Tursimo could be for you.
It won our ‘MPV of the Year’ award in 2012, so its no surprise to see the Alhambra here. It’s solidly built, meaning it can cope with anything a tearaway toddler can throw at it, and it’s great to drive too. As we said at the time ‘Everything about the Alhambra is planned for total convenience’ which when you’ve got kids, a dog and a million and one other things to think about, means a lot.
