People Movers Under $60k

Kia Carnival
  • Long list of safety features and creature comforts; all rows are well catered for with regards to storage, space and air-conditioning; six-speed automatic transmission is intuitive

  • Has a tendency to spin the wheels when not loaded up; lacking low-down torque; thirsty around town

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

Citroen Grand C4 Picasso
  • Effective and practical seven-seater; interior presentation; comfortable ride; willing and frugal turbo diesel engine

  • No airbag protection for third-row passengers; no direct air-vents for third-row passengers; long equipment list but higher price than before

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

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
