We have recently taken delivery of a Chrysler Grand Voyager 2.8 CRD Limited This is probably the largest people carrier on the market and will upset many at Green Party Headquarters.
The car is a 7 seat people carrier with 2 sliding rear doors the 5 rear seats have what is called "Stow and GO" which means that rather than having to remove the seats when extra luggage capacity is required the seats simply fold into the floor completely flat. When all seats are folded you have enough space to start you own removal business. The clever part here is that when the seats are in place you have a very large deep boot and 2 very handy cubby holes under the floor just in front of the first row of rear seats.
The seating configuration is 2 front, 2 middle captain chairs with armrests and 3 seater bench at rear which also splits 2/3 or 1/3 so you have many different arrangements to choose if 7 seats are not required. You really have to see this in action to appreciate how it all works.
We are Dad Mum and 4 children (12 and under) so a large MPV is a must. The children all love the car and find the seats very comfortable and sliding rear doors allow easy access. On our first holiday trip to Centre Parcs the 6 of us and all luggage fitted in perfectly. The under floor storage came in very handy taking all shoes, coats, books and games.
Our Model is the 2.8 CRD diesel with automatic gearbox . We are averaging 28 MPG and the car drives smoothly and quietly especially on the motorway with more than enough power. Most of the time the car is used in the town and the auto box is a joy, bearing in mind its size it is easy to manovre and rear parking senors help with parking. The steering is very responsive and corners well.
We choose the Limited model which is very well equipped with lots of safety features and many toys.
Safety first: ABS with traction control Front Air Bags Rear curtain Air Bags the whole length of the rear windows Self Levelling suspension 7 x 3 point seat belts
Equipment: Full leather Remote electric rear side doors Remote electric tailgate Remote locking and alarm Climate control Cruise control 6 disc changer Privacy glass and the list goes on
We choose the Ltd rather than the Ltd XS which for about £1800 more only gives you Sat Nav and built in DVD, we can buy our own for a lot cheaper.
So far so good very happy with car and no problems to write about. Please shop around and haggle for best prices, we opted for contract hire and dealer matched the best Internet price we could find
