Once upon a time I used to think of MPV's as just marketing terminology for van's with windows and I think a lot people thought Renault were mad when they launched the first Espace.

Once upon a time I used to think of MPV's as just marketing terminology for van's with windows and I think a lot people thought Renault were mad when they launched the first Espace. How things have changed, with the majority of manufacturers now featuring a full sized MPV in their vehicle line up.

Mitsubishi is no stranger to MPV's, having introduced the seven seat Space Wagon in the UK way back in 1986. Building on the success of the Space Wagon the new Mitsubishi Grandis was launched in the UK in July 2004. According to Mitsubishi 'the new Grandis MPV effortlessly combines everyday versatility with head-turning style and intelligent design'.

Inspired by the 'Space Liner' concept car from the 2001 Tokyo Motor Show, the new seven-seat Grandis is available in Classic, Equippe, Elegance and Warrior trim levels. Only the 2.4 litre petrol engine is currently available - a 2.0 litre diesel engine is to be introduced in September 2005 - for more information [ click here ].

Prices range from £18,499 for the 2.4 MIVEC Classic Manual (Petrol) to £23,499 for the range topping 2.4 MIVEC Warrior Automatic (Petrol).

We tested the Grandis 2.4 Elegance Automatic to see how Mitsubishi fare within the competitive world of seven-seat MPV's.
