Advantages Plenty of room, easy to drive and economical
Disadvantages Rear windows open outwards rather than down
Had this car so far for three years from new. Went into Citroen to look at a Picasso but it felt very claustophobic. My wife saw a Multispace in the showroom and suggested we have a look. I said I'm not driving a van, but, after a few minutes of nagging, agreed reluctantly to a test-drive.
The vision from inside is tremendous, on a posh car they'd call it panoramic. I was immediately taken by how surpisingly comfortable it was and easy to drive. Being a diesel, it's not as quiet as a petrolengine but I quite like the sound and even though diesel is more pricey, the fuel economy is good. Road tax is £145 for the CO2 emissions. Low insurance grouping as well. There's no alarm but it's not the sort of car thieves go for.
There are lots of nooks and crannys for storage and drop down tables in the back for the kids. If you have young children, the sliding doors in the rear are a god-send if you have to open the door road-side. The seats are higher in the back and is easier for younger children to look out of the windows.
It can be used as a workhorse if need be and the rear seats fold away easily to give a very big boot space. I'm up to 36,000 miles and, touch wood, have had no problems.
If you like keeping up with the Jones' then its probably not the car for you, and be prepared on times to take a bit of ridicule from friends / colleagues initially. Those who mocked me and then had a drive in it soon shut up and were genuinely surprised by quite how roomy, comfortable and versatile it is.
All right, it's not your normal type of MPV but if you want a very good priced vehicle that does the job then I'd recommend it from my own personal experience.
