The Previa is both huge and hugely impressive as a people carrier that first addressed the problem of where all the MPV occupants were going to put their luggage. Although buyers get a lot vehicle for their money, it’s not such brilliant value for money when you compare specification, equipment and flexibility with many rivals. Only the GL initially got a driver’s airbag and ABS brakes, although an electric sunroof is standard.

The Chrysler Grand Voyager and Renault Grand Espace are its biggest rivals, but the Previa can still make an egg-shaped case for itself. Not surprisingly it seats eight!
