People Movers Under $60k

Kia Carnival
  • Styling looks premium and nothing like a minibus of old; Cabin storage, layout and comfort are the best in the business; Petrol engine is genuinely fuel-efficient if you're not always in traffic

  • We'd love the same standard safety inclusions as the top of the range model; Can be a little thirsty in heavy traffic exclusively; If you're stepping up from a small SUV, you will need to get used to the size

Volkswagen Multivan
  • Arguably most practical van on the market for families; retro but not kitsch in its application; good to drive and nice to be in

  • Some low-speed hesitation from the drivetrain; seats can be a bit heavy to move; not cheap

Honda Odyssey
  • Interior space and versatility impressed more and more; comfort and ergonomics; family practicality with storage space

  • We never got used to the smartphone-based navigation system; unladen ride is choppy; front doors really are too low to the kerb for a lot of gutters

Hyundai iMax
  • Extra equipment; vast cabin; diesel engine; decent handling for a van; ownership costs

  • Four airbags; diesel's price premium; tough but austere cabin

Citroen Grand C4
  • Appealing French funkiness; Very cleverly packaged and flexible interior space; Comfy urban and long-haul country tourer; Decent value pitch

  • No AEB a deal-breaker for some; Petrol powertrain is workmanlike; French quirks won't be to everyone's tastes

Mercedes-Benz Valente
  • Vast cabin with eight adult-sized seats; ample diesel torque and intuitive seven-speed auto; good refinement considering its van roots; decent luggage space

  • Missing some key standard equipment such as sat-nav and reverse-view camera; low-fi infotainment; seat adjustment not as simple as it ought to be; scarcely any cupholders
