If you're after a value-packed, large people carrier, then the C8 is worth a look. It's one of the best value around, with a spacious interior, lots of comfort and family friendly features such as sliding side doors.

Running costs

Long term residuals are a concern, because of cashback deals for new buyers, and the fact that there are plenty of people carriers that offering seven seats and are less costly to run in terms of residuals, fuel and insurance. Petrol models will fare much worse on the used market.
