Honda FR-V (04-09) - rated 3.5 out of 5

The Fiat Multipla beat it to market (and lasted longer), but the Honda FR-V was one of the few six-seat people carriers marketed here in the UK when it arrived in 2004. A clever use of space meant the Honda, like the Multipla, sat its two rows of passengers across benches of three – though in fact they each had individual chairs.

What that meant, was that while it was fairly wide (2,113mm) it was also no longer than an average family car (4,285mm) despite being able to carry six people and their luggage.
