Sleek looks, strong Volkswagen-sourced diesel, seven-seats, well equipped as standard
Lacklustre performance, poor automatic gearbox, light steering
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.
