Petrolheads view MPVs as a disgrace to their “profession” and a terrible downgrade from anything else they might be driving, be it a Vios or a Lotus. But it doesn’t always have to be that way, thanks to capable people carriers like the Volkswagen Touran, Opel Zafira and Citroen Picasso. They make driving MPVs almost an enjoyment, rather than an outright embarrassment.
“Almost” because they are ultimately designed to move people in practical, not emotional, terms. Even so, the TSI-powered Touran packs more performance than any car of its type has a right to, the Zafira handles and takes care of its driver – even more than its passengers, while the Picasso is an automotive work of art like no other MPV.
And, likewise, there is no other local car magazine editorial like our all-new group test format.
We’ve made it easier than ever for you to compare and contrast the cars being tested together. No more ploughing through tons of text just to read the most important points. They are now all neatly presented in a caption-driven style that is readable yet informative.
Do check it out and give us some honest feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org, so that we can make our revamped group test even better. Enjoy.
