The Epica is Chevrolet's first attempt at a large family saloon in the UK and like the firm's other models majors on value for money. Offering Mondeo-rivalling space for Focus money it comes well equipped with entry-level models getting air conditioning, cruise control and alloy wheels while passenger and boot space are good.

Like the Kia Magentis and Dodge Avenger it represents bargain-basement family motoring but unfortunately the drab cabin and driving experience already feel behind the times.
