Over the last two decades, there’s been a steady stream of van-based MPVs trickling into the UK market. They almost always share their underpinnings with a commercial vehicle from within the manufacturer’s line-up, outfitted with more comfortable interiors and lengthened equipment lists. Crucially, though, they also bring van-style sliding side doors that are so popular with buyers prioritising practicality.
Some purpose-built passenger cars have adopted the sliding side door solution for entering and exiting the rear of the vehicle but today, the majority of its exponents are van-based. Don’t let this put you off because, despite their commercial origins, modern cars with sliding side doors offer comfort and quality to match most mainstream MPVs. Most importantly, all the members of this list come with the practical benefits of wide-opening sliding side doors that not only make loading or getting in and out easier but also help with access in tight spaces.
Aside from their novel door arrangements, these ‘vans with windows’ offer boxy proportions, no-frills practicality, simple engineering and (generally) seating for seven, which makes them a good solution for family transport. The front two seats tend to be fixed in place, with the second and third rows folding or lifting out to offer multiple seating configurations. In the van-based models where the seats can be removed entirely, it’s possible to achieve virtually the same carrying capacity as the original van.
As so many cars with sliding side doors are based on vans, they’re reasonably priced too, making them a good choice for budget-conscious families, with insurance, maintenance costs and fuel all being low. Elderly or disabled motorists will also appreciate the qualities of these vehicles, which remain a popular choice under the Motability scheme.
