    Kia Carens 1

    New price: £13,220 - £18,990

    The Kia Carens is a five- or seven-seat MPV with the Renault Scenic and Citroën C4 Picasso in its sights. Can this Korean car match European MPVs?

    New price: £17,150 - £21,555

    The Mazda 5 arrived in 2005 as a compact MPV to replace the ageing Premacy. It can seat up to seven, but is it better than a Ford S-Max or Toyota Verso?
