People Movers Under $60k

Kia Carnival
1
  • Unrivalled passenger car space; Versatile seating arrangement; Comfortable and luxurious

  • Ongoing infotainment issues; A newfound hobby of finding things in the classifieds to bring home; Some will still prefer an SUV

Volkswagen Multivan
  • Undeniably charming take on the humble people mover; Smooth, quiet and efficient diesel power; Versatile van-like interior space

  • Drivetrain lacks composure in some situations; Although comfortable, not all will like the van-like drive and ride experience; No AM radio seems like a faux pas

Honda Odyssey
  • Business class second-row seats; Refined at a cruise; Sharply priced

  • Engine needs more grunt; Seven-seat set-up is plush, but not the most practical option; Ride remains an issue

Hyundai iMax
  • Could easily host a party in the second row; Pleasant enough ride comfort; Simple range

  • Zero storage; Fixed third row strips it of van duties; A sheer lack of active safety gear

LDV G10
  • Engine and gearbox are spritely and efficient; Ride laden or unladen is good thanks to the coil spring rear; Value equation is effectively unbeatable

  • Safety rating means some buyers won't even consider the LDV; Some of the switchgear isn't as intuitive as it could be

People Movers Over $60k

Mercedes-Benz V-Class
1
  • Well-presented interior with loads of comfort and practicality; Those collapsible groceries baskets are epic; Refined driveline and great, non-van-like steering

  • It's expensive; Options aren't cheap either; Ride can feel firm at times; Lacking Mercedes's latest infotainment

Toyota Granvia
  • Premium interior appearance; Business-class second-row seating; Ideally suited to business use

  • Short on first-row comforts; Tight leg room between rows; Eight-seater lacks luggage space; Less family-friendly than before
