Seven seats as standard, hugely practical, improved comfort and quality, electrically sliding side doors
Diesel engine noisier and less efficient than rivals, some cheap interior plastics
When it comes to large and comfortable people carriers, Chrysler has always been adept at producing good value cars. Unfortunately quality and refinement haven't been up to scratch and worse still, the 2001 model suffered from a shocking Euro NCAP safety record. The 2008 model is a far superior offering that feels solidly built but is still well equipped and hugely versatile thanks to the ingenious Stow 'n Go seating system that allows you to fold all the chairs flat.
However it's not a nimble on-road companion, and the diesel engine can't compete with rivals for economy or smoothness.
