Chrysler Voyager 2.5 CRD SE

Review

WHICHEVER way you look at them, people carriers or MPVs bear more than a passing resemblance to vans.

And while vehicles such as the class-leading Ford Galaxy/SEAT Alhambra/Volkswagen Sharan triplets are more vanesque than some, other manufacturers try to inject a little bit more style into their people carrier offerings.

Step forward the Chrysler Voyager, recently redesigned and improved all round. While there is no denying its purpose in life is to ferry up to seven adults about in comfort, at least Chrysler has had a go at making it look a little more sleek than some of its rivals.

And from the front, the redesign works very well - a drooping nose, curved headlights and a large grille dominated by the winged Chrysler logo create a good-looking face. However, at the rear the good work is let down slightly as the Voyager's bulk becomes more apparent.

And apart from a redesign, Chrysler has also worked on a new common rail turbodiesel engine for the Voyager, displacing 2.5 litres and offering 140bhp. We have chosen to test this engine in entry-level SE trim, bringing the package to a few pounds over £19,500.
