    New van-based MPVs from Citroen and Vauxhall are more practical than ever. But do they leave their seven-seater rival from Ford all at sea?
    Buyers looking for a spacious family car might consider a traditional MPV or, perhaps more likely these days, a big SUV. But there is a section of the market that offers more boot space than nearly any other car, room for seven people in the specifications we’re testing and all this at a price lower than most family hatchbacks.

    These three people carriers are all based on vans, and it’s the newer Citroen Berlingo XL and Vauxhall Combo Life XL that are taking on the challenge of the Ford Grand Tourneo Connect. By adding some windows, extra seats and a few more creature comforts, manufacturers are able to offer cost-effective models that boast loads of space. So if you’re not too bothered about styling and need a practical car, one of these could be exactly what you’re looking for.

    Good choice bandit.

    We went the other way from people carriers to our first SUV

    and it suits us a couple better, as our kids are all grown up and we don’t need the extra space.

    So we went for the Tiguan SEL, with extras like self park, auto tailgate.

    Heated pretty much everything.

    Its not as practical if we needed ultimate space but it’s plenty big enough and comfort levels and for getting in and out it is way better then out old vw Touran.

    And did I mention the massage seats  😎😂

    our bulldogs chin is also the perfect high for him to rest it and look out the tailgate side window.

    Going to test drive a Peugeot Rifter today.looking at the Allure version but they only have a demonstrator with an auto box which is a much larger AP than the manual.

    399 AP for the 7 seat allure manual 100ps
