Frequently asked questions about MPVs
MPV stands for Multi-Purpose Vehicle, which is not particularly helpful because loads of cars have multiple purposes or at least can do many things. Essentially, an MPV is ideal for carrying people – that’s why they are sometimes called people carriers – and so are popular with growing families and cab drivers.
They tend to have a tall, boxy, upright shape, with lots of space and either five or seven seats. Those seven-seat MPVs usually have a middle row of three seats and then a further two seats in a third row. Seats in the third row usually fold into the boot floor, giving you the flexibility of being able to carry lots of luggage or lots of people.
Obviously, the best ones have loads of storage space all around the interior.
