was a time when being and safe was enough for the people-carrier masses. Not any more. Now we want people-carriers.

Ford#8217;s new S-MAX has soaking up most of the attention but Grandis deserves a place in the for its take on how to turn the family into a fun drive.

1. Looks

We like it! The Grandis borrows from the Colt#8217;s front-on without bloating its stylish The high waistline tapers the nose for a low and sporty look, the impression that this is a MPV and not just a people carrier.

The good looks extend to the where contemporary light straddle the rear door. All in a big car that doesn#8217;t look one, if you know what we

2. Looks inside 8/10

The driving position makes for a balance between visibility and a driving position. You#8217;ll be in a position than some MPVs on the road, but probably sit wondering why they need extra height.

Turn the key and the is illuminated with stylish this word#8217;s going to up a lot) blue lighting (or #8220;hi-contrast illumination#8221;) while parts of the dial without are blacked out #8211; cutting the the eye travels from the road to the and back again, which has got to be a thing. The dash swells the cab centre, not unpleasantly, and is a clutter-free with enough storage to without going down the of cup-holder craziness. There#8217;s a for the driver#8217;s left knee to sit the central area which a problem for me #8211; but could the more cowboy-gaited driver.

3. Practicality 8/10

This is an category for an MPV to perform well in and the Grandis does. No-one#8217;s to be first in the queue to occupy the row of seats but everyone had plenty of and comfort with nice touches like fold-down paying more than lip to there being life the front seats.

Mitsubishi#8217;s and seat#8221; system is great for you need storage rather seats (which folds into the floor) and if you take the second row too the storage available from 320 litres to 1545 And it#8217;s easy to figure out especially good news if one of life#8217;s instruction-phobes. Run out of space and you needed a truck anyway.

4. Ride and Handling 8/10

We the Grandis on the crosstown capital as well as for a motorway-pounding family to the West Country. It adapted to with ease. Clearly not going to be the car of choice for an urban Mitsubishi lay on the Colt for that. But the driver-focussed car-feel means it remarkably nippy for a seven-seater.

it on the big roads and it#8217;s in its element its MPV nature only really when you start nudging the towards speeds you#8217;re not supposed to.

5. Performance 7/10

We the six-speed diesel-fuelled Grandis 2.0 Classic and, as mentioned, the higher speeds reveal people-carrier identity. Go for the diesel and you#8217;ll be looking at a top speed of and just 10.8 seconds to get the to 62mph. No, it#8217;s not a sports but given it#8217;s primary it is definitely fun to drive.

This is expected to be the model of for 85 per cent of UK buyers but a 2.4 four-cylinder engine is also available.

6. Costs 7/10

Mitsubishi Grandis

The main facing buyers is whether to go for the diesel version or 2.4-litre model. Go for diesel and you should get an of 43mpg and a CO2 rating of 176g/km to £160 per year car tax). petrol and the average fuel-consumption down to 28.2 mpg while the CO2 rises to 237g/km (equating to per year car tax).

Mitsubishi a three year unlimited warranty, 12 year anti-corrosion and three years pan European home and accident assistance.

7. 7/10

The Grandis has only been on our for a couple of years so it#8217;s a bit to say how reliable it will be long-term. our week-long loan there no problems and everything appears and well put-together. Across its Mitsubishi scores just average on Auto Trader#8217;s Index.

8. Safety 9/10

is another area where an MPV be playing to its strengths #8211; and the does. All UK Grandis models fitted with driver and front and side airbags as as curtain airbags for the first and rows of seats. The passenger can be deactivated to allow child to be fitted to the front passenger if required. The Grandis Equippe and models come with stability and traction control

It scored a credible 4-Star crash rating.

9. Equipment

The entry-level Grandis Classic 17#8243; alloy wheels, air conditioning, front and rear bumpers and pretty much else you#8217;d expect at level. Upgrade to the Equippe and you get the traction and stability control dual sunroof and cruise The Elegance features all this leather seats.

Go for the range-topping version and you get a DVD Entertainment System, inch on your alloys and extras.

10. X-Factor 8/10
