If you're on the look for sheer practicality, MPVs are usually to the go-to choice. Many on the market come with sliding doors now, too, just for increased accessibility.
We've rounded up 10 of the best cars with sliding doors.
10. Hyundai i800
It’s only available to order and you’re unlikely to get a discount, but the Hyundai i800 is a car that has a massively loyal following among its fans, and with prices starting at £26,095 it’s also exceptional value for a well-equipped vehicle with seating for eight. Sure, it’s based on the iLoad van, but it drives well enough and is amazingly spacious.Save money on a new Hyundai today
9. Fiat Qubo
The smallest sliding-door car on the market is the Fiat Qubo, and it’s also one of the cheapest, with prices starting at £12,160 on-the-road. It’s a five-seater, and has reasonable load space despite its small dimensions, making it ideal for young families on tight budgets. It’s also quite characterful, with a bright and functional dash and chunky controls.Save money on a new Fiat today
8. Mercedes V-Class
The V-Class introduces a touch of luxury to the sliding door market, along with the added convenience of electrically-operated side doors and tailgate. It’s a superb vehicle for large families or also for the executive private hire market — such as business airport transfers. The sliding doors mean you don’t run the risk of fare-paying rear-seat passengers opening them into traffic.Save money on a new Mercedes-Benz today
7. Ford Tourneo Connect
Following a theme here, the Tourneo Connect is yet another van-based MPV, but it also brings with it Ford’s legendary dynamic capabilities – the Connect is one of the best vans on the market to drive, and the Tourneo version is one of the most car-like of the van-based sliding-door MPVs. It’s also one of the best in terms of functionality, with a huge boot and loads of passenger space.Save money on a new Ford today
6. Peugeot Partner Teepee
The van-based Partner Teepee comes with a choice of petrol, diesel or electric powertrains, making it one of the most versatile sliding-door choices in the market. It’s spacious, too, with a useful opening rear window hatch, plus the option of a panoramic roof to give a more airy feel to the interior. It’s also good value, with prices starting at £16,795.Save money on a new Peugeot today
5. Citroen Berlingo Multispace
The Berlingo Multispace is closely related to the Peugeot Partner, but starts from £1,000 less and has a broader model range. It comes with up to seven seats —all of which are fully removable — along with Citroen’s innovative ‘Modutop’ roof-mounted storage systems. It’s the best sliding-door MPV for families who require lots of space.Save money on a new Citroen today
4. Ford B-Max
The B-Max isn’t the most practical car in this list in terms of its dimensions, but it’s certainly one of the cleverest, with an extremely stiff bodyshell that – with both the front and rear sliding doors opened – gives completely unobstructed access to the passenger area, with no intrusive B-pillar. This makes it ideal for young families for fitting and removing car seats, as well as offering far better access for people with limited mobility.Save money on a new Ford today
3. Volkswagen Sharan
The Sharan isn’t cheap, but it is good. Very good, in fact, with acres of interior space, high tech features and a premium quality feel. The range kicks off with a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine, which punches way above its weight with 150PS, while large sliding doors and the ability to fold all five of the rear seats flat into the floor give it van-like versatility when needed.Save money on a new Volkswagen today
2. SEAT Alhambra
Essentially the same car as the Volkswagen Sharan, but with prices starting at £25,435, it offers a quality package at a relatively affordable price and wrapped up in a stylish package. Plus, the practicality and engine line-up from its German sibling has been retained.Save money on a new SEAT today
1. Ford Grand C-Max
You could say the C-Max is the Grand-daddy of them all. It’s one of the more affordable options on the market, starting at £20,325, and offers a good amount of equipment wrapped up in a stylish package. It’s also packed with safety tech, so you can transport yourself and family in comfort.Save money on a new Ford today
