Compact passenger vehicles are big on quality, fuel efficiency, and space and are designed for transporting passengers in comfort. Every family needs an efficient and flexible small multi-purpose vehicle. |
Modern multi-purpose vehicles are elegant yet sporty with an array of practical features. Whether you choose a 5-seater or the 7-seater MPV, there is enough space for everyone in the modern people mover. Exceptional manoeuvrability and highly responsive, contemporary people carriers offer great handling, safety and comfort.
Highly efficient engines
The versatility of the modern compact MPVs is also evident under the bonnet. Some vehicles boast turbo diesel engines with direct injection technology that is available in various output classes. The 6-speed dual-clutch gearbox in the contemporary MPV is an additional feature contributing to the fuel efficiency of these family-friendly compact minivans. The direct-shift gearbox engine changes the gears automatically without interrupting the power flow, enabling some modern passenger minivans to reach a top speed of 186 km/h.
Coupled with a five-speed manual transmission, these modern MPVs deliver impressive performance transmitted via the four-cylinder 1.6i petrol engines. Innovative fuel-saving technologies in small multi-purpose vehicles mean you will worry less about fuel costs while enjoying the best performance provided by these passenger minivans.
Ground-breaking safety features
Thanks to the innovative safety features, you can lean back, unwind and enjoy your family adventures in the lovely atmosphere provided by the contemporary multi-purpose vehicle.
Uncompromising safety is embodied in modern compact passenger vans. The hill hold control that is part of the Electronic Stabilisation Programme (ESP) is available as standard on some more advanced small passenger vans.
Daytime running lights increase the visibility of these compact MPVs during the day and are available as standard on some vehicles. Certain modern MPVs come standard with four airbags including driver, passenger and side airbags to ensure that all occupants are cushioned in the unfortunate case of an accident.
Three-point automatic seatbelts come standard in modern MVPs. During family trips even the smallest members of the family are protected, thanks to innovative child seat mountings in the passenger section of these compact passenger vans.
The Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) is standard with most modern small passenger vans and it helps reduce skidding and maintain steering control when brakes are used in emergency situations. The Traction Control System (TCS) helps drivers accelerate on slippery or low-friction.
Loads of room for everyone
Modern compact multi-purpose vehicles come with a wide range of features aimed at making life on the move a little easier and more stylish.
With some featuring seven comfortable seats, contemporary MPVs ensure that there is a place for everything from cooler boxes to surfboards. The passenger compartment seats can be adjusted or completely removed to provide even more space to be spontaneous in the compact MPV.
Whether it’s a family holiday or a small team-building outing, small multi-purpose vehicles have room for the whole crew.
