Top Gear’s Top 5 MPVs

Because there comes a time when a supercar just isn’t practical anymore…

 

Ford S-Max 2.0 TDCI Titanium

1. Ford S-Max 2.0 TDCI Titanium
£25,455, 163bhp, 251lb ft, 0-62mph 9.2secs, vmax 127mph, 49.6mpg, CO2 139g/km

Let’s face it, if you like cars, you don’t want to buy an MPV. But reproduction is often quite enjoyable. And so is the S-Max.

 

 

 

 

 

Seat Alhambra 2.0 TDI SE

2. Seat Alhambra 2.0 TDI SE

£26,195, 140bhp, 236lb ft, 0-62mph 10.9secs, vmax 120mph, 50.4mpg, CO2 146g/km

It’s a simple recipe, but sometimes they’re the easiest to mess up. The Alhambra gets it right, and so takes a deserved place in this list.

 

 

 

 

 

VW Sharan 2.0 TDI 140 SE

VW Sharan 2.0 TDI 140 SE

3. VW Sharan 2.0 TDI 140 SE
£28,230, 140bhp, 236lb ft, 0-62mph 10.9secs, vmax 121mph, 50.4mpg, CO2 146g/km

It’s basically the same as the Alhambra, but pricier spec-for-spec. Whether it’s worth more cash depends on your feelings towards the badge on the front.

 

 

 

 

Peugeot 5008 2.0 HDI Active

Peugeot 5008 2.0 HDI Active

4. Peugeot 5008 2.0 HDI Active
£22,395, 150bhp, 250lb ft, 0-62mph 10secs, vmax 118mph, 47.9mpg, CO2 154g/km

It has seven seats and performs all the sensible duties a large family would expect. But don’t get any ideas about upping the pace…

 

 

 

 

Vauxhall Zafira Tourer 2.0 CDTI SRI

Vauxhall Zafira Tourer 2.0 CDTI SRI

5. Vauxhall Zafira Tourer 2.0 CDTI SRI
£25,915, 165bhp, 280lb ft, 0-62mph 9.1secs, vmax 129mph, 54.3mpg, CO2 137g/km

It used to be a plain old Zafira. Now it’s the Tourer, which means it’s posher and arguably better looking. But no less useful.
