It may be based on a panel van, but the Hyundai i800 defies its commercial vehicle roots by being a refined and hugely practical people carrier that is surprisingly good to drive. The boxy shape isn't stylish but it does mean that interior space is cavernous and the Hyundai can easily carry eight adults in comfort plus there's an enormous boot too. Thanks to the strong diesel engine and a car-like driving position it's good on the move while a comfortable ride and low noise levels make it a great long distance family car.

There are a few squeaks and rattles, especially on bumpy roads, while the fact that it's more than five metres long can make it awkward to park - but generous equipment levels and a well built interior make up for this. Alternatives such as the Volkswagen Transporter/Caravelle and Mercedes Viano may have a more upmarket image but neither can compete with the i800 in terms of value for money.
