Most Economical People Carriers

Here are the top 10 most economical people carriers in the U.K. in order of combined MPG.

All the vehicles listed are able to carry 7 passengers in 3 rows of seats. In many the third row of seats, and sometimes the second, can be folded flat to create extra boot space, which can be a bit on the small side when these cars are configured as 7 seaters.

Many people carriers will live most of their lives in the city where the case is even stronger for the Renault Grand Scenic. Its urban MPG is a massive 12 more than the next nearest. This is a considerable cost saving.

Renault Grand Scenic

The most economical people carrier is the Renault Grand Scenic.If you need to move seven people around you won't find a car that can do it with cheaper running costs.

The Grand Scenic uses the same 1.5 litre dCi diesel unit found in many other Renault's including the tiny Clio supermini. As such don't expect any speed records to be broken by the large and heavy Grand Scenic, which additionally has to cope with up to seven passengers and their luggage. Reviewers do however say that its pleasant to drive and although the engine lacks outright power there's plenty of torque.

The third row of seats in the Grand Scenic fold flat and the middle row fold forwards.
