Battle of the MPVs hots up as major players cut prices

CITROEN, Peugeot and Volkswagen have announced price realignments and specification changes to their MPV ranges in a bid to claw bigger shares of the increasingly competitive niche market. The moves are all aimed at 'adding value' and, in the case of Citroen's Synergie, involve price cuts of up to £1,250.

Citroen is also adding automatic air conditioning as standard on all but the entry-level X models, while Peugeot has realigned prices of its equivalent MPV, the 806, and added air conditioning, which was previously an £800 option, to the SL and SLdt models making it standard throughout the range.

Now Volkswagen has launched a revised Sharan line-up, with a new Sport model and without the Carat 2.0 and TDI 90 models, which have been dropped due to lack of demand. Air conditioning is now offered as standard across the range and Volkswagen said price adjustments and specification enhancements make the vehicles up to £975 better value.
