Five seater cars with small advance payments

Skoda Roomster £95 advance payment

When recommending cars to people they are constantly surprised when we tell them that you can get a big car with a nil advance payment, having said that there are not many – in fact two! worth a mention are the Kia Soul, Nissan Note and the Skoda Fabia estate but these do not offer the versatility and sheer size of the Roomster and Partner Tepee.

Both the Skoda Roomster and the Peugeot Tepee are MPV style cars, that is multi purposed vehicle to me and you.  We have chosen these two because they both offer great value, low running costs and the greatest commodity of all, space. The Peugeot Tepee has the edge on size and also has sliding rear doors which really would be the clincher for us.

Peugeot Partner Tepee - Nil advance payment

The main thing these two cars have in common is the fact that both have what can only be described as unique looks, in a kind of Marmite – love it or hate it – way. We like them both as we consider both cars to have bold styling, though some friends have been cruel over the styling of our Citroen Berlingo, the French brother of the Peugeot Tepee.

Jeremy Clarkson in his Daily Telegraph column said “Ordinarily, there is nothing on God’s earth quite as depressing as a mini-MPV…The only exceptions to this rule, thus far, have been the Ford S-Max and the Citroën Berlingo: two genuinely clever and appealing cars. But the Roomster is better still”

Though we do not agree with Jeremy on all that he has said we have to agree with him on this one!
