Need a car that can double up as a van

I currently own a Vauxhall Meriva, which is very handy as the fold flat seats convert it into a small van. I now need to buy a new car. Are there any larger vehicles which have this facility?

Yes, with various degrees of success. Belingos, Partners and Doblos are slightly bigger. Galaxys, Alhambras and Sharans are significantly bigger. In Ford Connect Grand Tourneos the folded seats leave a slightly higher load deck. Most are tested in www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/ All are covered in www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar

Proper seven-seat practicality which is more than you can say for most SUVs, practical and spacious even with all seven seats occupied, sliding rear doors are a real boon especially the electric versions.
