Fiat Doblo, from £14,400

Interior Inside the Doblò you’ll find five full-sized seats and a huge boot - 790 litres. Fold the rear seats and this figure becomes a van-rivalling 3,200 litres. There’s even a high-roof option if you want more headroom. Add the Family pack to get an extra set of fold-down seats in the boot. The Doblò makes for brilliant family motoring, and all that space is easy to keep organised. There are storage compartments dotted all around, including aeroplane-style overhead storage, a lockable glovebox big enough for your laptop or tablet computer, and lots of cup and bottle holders all around.
Safety Every new Fiat Doblò comes with twin front airbags, steering wheel adjustment and split-folding rear seats for comfort. A tyre pressure sensor picks up on slow punctures and warns of impending blow-outs too. You also get ABS with electronic brakeforce distribution, an Electronic Stability Programme and Hill Hold control. Cruise control comes with the Lounge trim, taking the stress out of long-distance motorway journeys, and also features parking sensors to keep things easy on arrival at your destination.
