The Spacetourer comes equipped with a series of driving aids that make it just a joy to drive - whether you’re on the B-roads, or the motorway (adaptive cruise control!).
The Grip Control feature allows selection of different types of terrain, and brings with it confidence that the vehicle is actually going to do what you tell it to.
And the rear parking sensor is an absolute godsend when you’re not quite sure where the back end is...
The Spacetourer comes in two sizes (they have sadly dropped the small version from the line-up) the Medium is 4.95M long and the XL 5.3M. Both offer exceptional comfort inside with three rows of seats, while the storage space in the rear is ample even for the kind of large family that would need a drive like this.
With a fuel economy figure of 53.3mpg combined, you’re looking at a relatively economical way of moving a lot of people, or a lot of stuff, from A - B. And you can do so in comfort, too.
The cabin is well designed, and versatile, too - there are a lot of storage spaces, and different configurations of seats offers a flexibility that you just don’t get from smaller vehicles.
There are nice touches everywhere - you don’t have to lift up the heavy tailgate to put something in the back, you can just open the window. And the sliding rear doors are motorised, so open and close at the touch of a button.
All this comes at a price, of course, and you won’t get any change out of £30,000 for even the basic model (rising to £43,000 for the top specced XL model).
But then, if you need this kind of space, you need it - and of all the options on offer, the Spacetourer is certainly among the most nimble, comfortable, and easiest on your wallet... as well as your nerves.
