This is Chrysler's refreshed Voyager MPV, which goes on sale on the 1st May. Inheriting the company's new family face introduced on the Crossfire, it also brings improved safety and a new powertrain to strengthen the vehicle's hand.

On the outside, the people-mover features a new nose treatment, grille and Chrysler's distinctively-shaped headlights. There are also revised mouldings running down the Voyager's flanks, as well as new wheel covers and alloys that distinguish the car.

Inside, a full length side curtain airbag now insures better protection for passengers in all three rows of seats. Chrysler also claim a better-built cabin in which rattles and other unseemly noises are 16 per cent less common.

And under the bonnet, there's a new 2.8-litre common-rail diesel offered in both the Voyager and its longer-wheelbase sibling, the Grand Voyager. Teamed with a four-speed automatic transmission, this adds to the economy and driveability offered by Chrysler's Galaxy-rival, the American company claims.

With new 2.8-litre diesel power, the Voyagers range from £23,190 for the standard LX to £31,290 for the Limited XS Grand- version. Otherwise prices stay as they were, meaning an entry-level 2.4-litre Voyager SE costs £18,495, and a flagship Grand Voyager 3.3 Limited XS £32,020.

  • Kia Stonic

    18 October 2017
    Handsome entrant into the bulging small crossover market has a strong engine and agile handling, but isn’t as comfortable or complete as rivals
  • Hyundai Kona
    First Drive
    18 October 2017
    Hyundai's funky-looking Kona crossover with a peppy three-cylinder engine makes all the right noises for the car to be a success in a crowded segment
  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
