The MPV or ‘people carrier’ market is a tough one for automakers to crack. Some spend time on funky designs, others on the highest quality interiors. With the Voyager however, Chrysler has ignored the standard approach and gone its own direction. And do you know what? It works fantastically well.
A real veteran of the MPV class, the original Voyager was introduced way back in 1988 and has spawned several generations over the years. Throughout its history it has always demonstrated a ‘function over form’ mentality, but that doesn’t take away from the overall attraction. Available in both short wheel base (Voyager) and long wheelbase (Grand Voyager) models, there’s certainly an element of versatility.
Yes, it may not be anything extra special to behold, but the appeal is that the Voyager is that it’s incredibly functional. Look past the boxy nature and relatively cheap looking interior and you’ll see a car with phenomenal interior space, a huge boot, ease of use and, as is the norm with American cars, a massive amount of kit as standard. If you have a large family or need to transport a lot of people in comfort, there’s not much out there that can better the Chrysler.
It drives well and is surprisingly nimble for a big car, although you shouldn’t expect high levels of performance as that’s not what it’s about. Big engines will certainly get you there and the automatic gearbox option in particular means you can sit back, relax and soak up the miles.
Finding a bargain used Chrysler Voyager here at Motors.co.uk should be a breeze as there are thousands of different listings to check out and also huge price discounts. Second hand cars for sale are always great deals as you pay less and get more, and at the end of the day who wants to spend a lot of money if they can help it?
So if you’re in need of a spacious people carrier and aren’t too bothered about cutting edge design, the Chrysler Voyager could be the one for you. It’s big in terms of size and personality, and comes with a huge amount of kit as standard. With an ‘ironmonger’ look about it, this American giant is definitely solid and won’t let you down.
