Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

The Roomster uses high-strength steel in key areas of its structure and six airbags (front, side and curtain) are standard, so it's little surprise that it was awarded the maximum five star crash safety rating by Euro NCAP. It also has Isofix child seat mounting points in the rear. However originally the ESP stability control system was optional on all but the Scout model.

This changed in 2009 and now all cars come with it as standard. A tyre pressure monitoring system is also available as an option, as are cornering front fog lights and headlights that turn with the steering wheel.

If the Roomster was only able to offer its 450 litres minimum luggage space, it would still be one of the most practical cars you could buy for the money. However, the luggage space can be increased to 530 litres with all three rear seats still in the car and available for use. The rear seats can be folded or removed, or the two outer seats can be moved closer to the centre of the car to increase shoulder room by taking out the middle seat.

The seats are easy to fold and easily light enough for one person to lift them in and out of the car. Other storage space is generous, with two glove compartments and wide door storage bins. Under-seat storage is also available.
