Review: Mitsubishi Space Runner (1999 – 2005)


Practical, frugal runabout with two rear sliding doors and a good view out.

No official UK cars, so in scarce supply. Spares must be ordered from Japan.

Looking for a used MPV that's cheap to run - any recommendations?

I am looking for a used MPV that’s cheap to run as a daily car. I have £2500 to spend and want something flexible, with the ability to fold away the seats and be used as an occasional camper, with fold flat seats to form a double bed. What do you recommend?
You could do this in the Mitsubishi Space Runner and the 2001-2006 Honda Jazz. MPVs in this price range were mostly before foldaway seats, but the Honda Shuttle could be turned in to a bed.
