Value

4 out of 5

Expensive in comparison to the competition.

Costs

4 out of 5

No worst that any of the major manufacturers.

Driving

5 out of 5

Drives like a car, despite size and weight of an MPV.

Performance

4 out of 5

Diesel is not the most powerful on the market and fully loaded can struggle up longer inclines.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Has never failed to go first time, but have 65K on the clock after three years and has required work.

Not the most exciting of MPVs! If such a thing exists.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Very comfortable, but engine noise is not the best damped and can be intrusive.

Front brake have been skimmed three times due to a propensity to warp over time. This thing eats front tyres, lucky to get 15K, fourth set just fitted. Its not my driving either!
