If all of you do not decide on purchase of a minivan yet, I want to expand your choice and to tell about one three of a car which, in my opinion, should not leave you indifferent and you surely stop the choice on any of them.
Well, you I will not weary and I will at once start the review of three handsome: Kia Joice, Renault Scenic, Ford C-MAX. This time cars were chosen by such principle that the price completely answered quality, and the driving on a minivan was only in pleasure.
Once again I will remind that the prices of second-hand cars depend on engine displacement, a type of fuel, (the white is always cheaper), complete sets and from where the car is driven. If you wish a full electropackage, ABS, climate control, leather salon and cast disks, respectively the car will cost on couple tyasyach dearer than that will be without all these frills.
Kia Joice minivan
Year of release: 2000-2001
Price: 7000-8500 thousand dollars (the diesel version is not present, a full electropackage of +200 c.u., climate control of +300 c.u., leather salon of +300 c.u., cast disks +200 of c.u.)
I was struck with this minivan. Having taken for a start not the wheel, and at least in salon of the car, you feel, as houses in front of the TV. The feeling of a scope is felt since the first moment. You each part of a body feel the comfort and conveniences bringing the car. When I managed to reach a driver's seat then that is told, in the fairy tale to tell, a feather to describe. Beauty – in a word.
Having left the car to examine design, I cannot but note the osty corners in registration of the case giving to a minivan a type of the business car. The forward headlights similar to human eyes look brutally therefore when you look at Kia Joice minivan in front, think if it starts, will eat you alive. The car quite massive, but only driving it it is not felt.
In a minivan the main thing spaciousness and comfort – with it at Joyce problems are not present. I safely would give to the car a rank "business class" as conveniences and comfort at a driving on it at the highest level, and in a luggage carrier it is possible to contain if not all apartment then a half. If you need to transport seven people, do not worry, seats in the minvena from Kia will be enough for all, and none of passengers will inconveniently not feel.
From shortcomings, and such were, I can allocate only big , about 12 liters for hundred kilometers. And so far I did not hear about the diesel version, but converted gas-gasoline to find really. The big cowl in comparison with other minivans also got to shortcomings, it does the car to more massive. By the way, kapotny minivans now rarity. Offensively to hear it when talked in the market to the owner of a car, bodies at this minivan are not galvanized that very much even upsets.

Minivan of Renault Megane Scenic
Year of release: 2000-2001
Price: 8500-10000 thousand dollars (the diesel of +800 c.u., a full electropackage of +200 c.u., climate control of +300 c.u., leather salon of +300 c.u., cast disks +200 of c.u. – seldom meet)
In appearance the machine quite small and it is possible to compare it to a minivan of Mitsubishi Space Star from the previous survey . But the minivan from Renault wins practically on all indicators against Mitsubishi. In what?
The first, on what you pay attention is a volume luggage carrier which was not even spoiled by a slanted back door. The first feelings which you receive when you get into Renault as the passenger, can be described how "tightly, but it is convenient". If you have a family from four people, will comfortably go everything but if five, it is necessary to move a little.
Taking the wheel, you feel quite comfortably. All main devices before eyes, and prevents to switch nothing a transmission. The driver's seat is one level above, than the others, thus you receive the good review. On the road the minivan behaves quietly, and you should not feel discomfort in management. This car obeys implicitly. Cursor volume in 1.6 liters (the smallest volume) quite is enough. Renault Megane Scenic well gathers speed and also well brakes that tells 1.6 liter engines about quality of brake shoes and sufficiency.
From weak places of the car it is possible to allocate quite expensive details which from time to time you should buy. And in comparison with the same minivan from Mitsubishi it is the car less komfortabelen in respect of a suspension bracket, and therefore I consider the price of Renault Megane Scenic obviously overestimated.

Ford C-MAX minivan
Year of release: 2006
Price: about 15-16 thousand dollars (diesel of +1500 c.u., full electropackage of +400 c.u., climate control of +300 c.u., leather salon of +300 c.u., cast disks +400 of c.u.)
Tsenakachestvo: 45 (according to year of release and the price!)
The minivan of Ford C-MAX surprised with nothing us with design. Quite strict registration which can be pleasant, both to the successful student, and the uncle at the age of 50 years. Without excess innovators also the salon is made. You sit down in it and at once you feel severity which is cast by the dashboard. But except severity designers brought still a small sports note, having made the chromeplated inserts on a wheel and the panel.
Sitting in salon, you for a second will not feel discomfort from leather seats. But if feel inconveniently, always possibly to adjust seats under itself.
As for spaciousness of salon, the C-MAX developers specially created all conditions for comfortable trips in a minivan: here the place will be enough for all five family members if such are available (it is a pity did not let out seven-seater option). However, impresses spaciousness not only the salon, but also glove compartments. Now you will be able to push a small volume of "War and peace" and couple of small brochures into them. The luggage carrier which with ease if such it is necessary to transport will enter also did not suffer from capacious and comfortable salon and if to put a back row of seats, it is possible to place also a two-three of the put bicycles.
This minivan feels the road on "HURRAH!", as well as the colleagues considered above. The driving in such minivan will bring joy not only to the driver, but also passengers who should not feel discomfort at a trip.
But do not think that I this car will only praise highly, scold too is for what. See, the price speaks for itself, but also year of release only 2006. But also spare parts will cost 10 times more, than at the cars considered above, it too should be considered upon purchase. Therefore if your financial opportunities allow to stop the choice on Ford C-MAX minivan, safely get this car.
comfort for the passengers sitting behind;
Minuses: price and spare parts.
All six minivans got under consideration of InfoAdvisor.net thanks to the popularity among motorists. There are also other brands and models, but these already underwent testing time on our roads. And if you are interested in purchase of a usual minivan, modest on fuel consumption and the dimensions, and, of course, for rather small money, we advise to look narrowly at these models.
Only one remark: do not forget that cars not new, and therefore carefully check their technical condition upon purchase. Even the most reliable car will not sustain the negligent relation.
