Sometimes you just need a car that will carry lots of people, comfortably and with no hassle. The MPV (multi-purpose vehicle), AKA people carrier, is probably the only thing short of buying a van that fits the bill.
These cars aren’t just for people with huge families, though. Even if you’re not transporting seven people regularly, a full-size MPV still lets you carry yourself, your partner, a couple of kids and all of your luggage without forcing you to decide what to leave behind when the boot’s full. Some models include sliding rear seats that let you make the most of the space on offer, while others include roof rails as standard: perfect for attaching bike racks and other bulky items.
If your family likes to take a lot of trips around the country, you’ll be pleased to learn that newer MPVs often include family-friendly features like power sockets and fold-down trays. These simple additions can make a long drive go by much faster!
