Chrysler Grand Voyager Limited: One Minute Test Drive Review
27 October 2011
What's new: The most premium of seven-seat large MPVs has received a subtle facelift, with a new badge, grille, bonnet and rear bumper and tailgate, as well as new LED tail lamps.
Excellent: This range-topping Limited version comes fully kitted, with the excellent Stow 'n' Go seating system coming in electric form, automatically stowing seats at the touch of a button.
Good: The ride quality is good and there is a general air of classy transportation that's hard to ignore. Lower-specced models at below £30,000 are more competitive with volume rivals.
Average: The refinement from the 2.8-litre diesel isn't much to write home about, while residual values of 31.3% are roughly in line with the likes of the Ford S-max and Volkswagen Sharan.
Poor: Mpg and performance are poor - for a 2.8-litre diesel to only produce 161hp but still emit 222g/km and offer 33.6mpg seems disappointingly old-tech.
Verdict: Supremely comfortable and well-equipped people carrier, but it's expensive, inefficient and noisier than rivals that are much cheaper to run.
