When a seven seat MPV just won't do there's always the Dispatch Combi which has nine seats and lots of functionality. This vehicle is effectively a van with the seats removed and has sliding doors in the side to make getting in and out easier. One of the drawbacks of converting a van is that it can be cumbersome to manoeuvre though this vehicle has an effective pneumatic suspension which makes even the roughest potholed road become smooth and pleasant.
And as it's really a van, the Dispatch Combi shouldn't be compared with having car-like abilities. It is, however, a practical alternative to a large MPV and is very pleasant to drive. It's also built to last and take lots of punishment. The entry level of the Dispatch Combi is the 1.6litre HDi diesel but it feels underpowered at speed but it is good around town. The best model would be the Leisure 136 SX 2.0 HDi which is a better engine.
The Combi with Citroen's effective and reliable 2.0 litre HDi diesel are great to drive and in a vehicle of this size they aren't going to be the most economical: the SX with the 136bhp output will return around 39mpg. However, for those on a budget, or with green credentials, the engine can be run using cheaper 30% bio-diesel fuel. To help keep the Dispatch Combi under control, the carmaker has added stability control and anti-lock brakes. There's also fitted, as standard, a full set of airbags including a curtain airbag which is fitted into the roofline.
