Top three compact MPVs for mumsBack

Multi-purpose vehicles or MPVs as they are more widely referred to are a great choice of car to opt for if you’re a mum on the run. During the past decade, there has been an influx of MPVs come onto the market to rival the standard family car and make life easier for motorists who need to cater to the needs of a growing family.

However, not everyone is looking for a large MPV vehicle which is where compact MPVs become an attractive option, particularly if you’re looking for a car which offers more space than conventional small family cars and contains some classic MPV traits such as sliding doors, sliding rear seats and plenty of gadgets and equipment to keep your brood amused on the school run.

For all those mums who are considering purchasing a compact MPV, why not check out the Trusted Dealers top three recommendations below:

Citroen C4 Picasso: Prices from £3699.00

The Citroen C4 Picasso compact MPV remains a firm favourite with motorists thanks to its stylish looks and attractive price tag. It offers a practical five seat car with a light and airy cabin and plenty of leg and head room for passengers. This car is well suited to family life thanks to its high level of equipment designed to keep the family in comfort on long or short journeys alike. It comes with an excellent range of diesel engines and we would recommend the 1.6 diesel engine with 108bhp to gain the best value for money in terms of fuel consumption. The only pitfall of this otherwise excellent MPV is the residual value is low, so it’s well worth seeking a used Citroen C4 Picasso if you’re looking for even better value for money.

Ford C-MAX: Prices from £3991.00

If you’re looking for an MPV which offers excellent handling coupled with low running costs, the Ford C-MAX is a great choice. The drive is smooth with a high driving seat position making the driver feel completely in control, and providing ease of access to the dials and dash. One of the best features about the C-Max is its enormous boot which rivals many other compact MPVs on the market and provides an ideal space for luggage, shopping or the family dog.

Renault Scenic: Priced from £1795.00

The Renault Scenic was one of the first compact MPV cars to be launched back in the mid-1990s, and although there is a lot more choice available to motorists today, it remains one of the most reliable, attractive and well-priced MPVs on the market. The ride is smooth and there is a good view out of the cabin thanks to the raised seating positions, making it an easy drive too. The cabin layout is clever, providing plenty of neat storage solutions throughout coupled with an impressive sized boot.
