Which cars carry the family and all their clobber from A to B most effectively?

No car offers more space and practicality than an MPV, and these days the best ones look good and handle well, too. Our results reveal the cars that keep both driver and kids happy.

Read our latest run down of the best MPVs

Winner: Ford S-MAX It’s difficult for MPVs to impress buyers, as their sheer size often means compromised running costs and handling. According to owners, the Ford S-MAX does the best job and scored highly in the ride comfort and handling categories. A 77th-place finish for reliability and 85th for running costs show where the big seven-seater could improve, though.

Last place: Renault Scenic/Grand Scenic If the S-MAX shows how an MPV can impress, the Renault Scenic and Grand Scenic show how to disappoint. Owners of Renault’s MPVs want more performance, better brakes, improved handling and lower running costs. They were impressed with the Scenic’s practicality, but its 61st-place finish in that category wasn’t enough to lift it from the bottom of the MPV class.
