Mitsubishi Grandis (04-10) - Review

The sharp-looking Grandis is a stylish people carrier that can seat seven thanks to a spacious cabin and clever extra folding seats that disappear into the boot floor. It comes well equipped as standard - making it good value for money, especially as a used buy.

3 out of 5

The sharp-looking Grandis is a stylish people carrier that can seat seven thanks to a spacious cabin and clever extra folding seats that disappear into the boot floor. It comes well equipped as standard - making it good value for money, especially as a used buy. There are two engines available but the most popular choice is the 2.0-litre DI-D diesel which is actually a Volkswagen unit. The light steering means it's not enjoyable on twisting roads, but it's surprisingly easy to manoeuvre in town and makes a good long distance motorway car.

What owners say...

 Rear seats are brilliant, folding away and reversible. Good mpg (easy indicated 45mpg). Very practical car.

 Although it has the extra set of seats these easily stow away into the floor to give a cavernous rear space. We have nicked named it MOBY for the huge interior.

 The room and when you put the back seats down it more or less doubles for a little van. Went away with 6 people last summer and got most of the luggage in as well, used a roof box for beach stuff.
