If you're in the market for a mini or supermini sized MPV, chances are you won't have Mitsubishi's Space Star in pole position on your shortlist. Why? It certainly isn't the quickest, the most spacious, the cleverest or the cheapest candidate around. What it does offer is a comfortable middle ground, a smartly styled appearance and an impressive range of engines. Most will overlook it in favour of more conspicuous offerings such as the Renault Scenic, Fiat Multipla or Vauxhall Zafira, but in truth the Mitsubishi is a smaller, less ambitious proposition more akin to a Daihatsu Grand Move. To ignore a used Space Star because of this is to pass a competent offering by, and one that offers 90% of the utility of mini MPVs at a modest price. If you want a nearly new micro MPV that does nothing badly and won't go out of fashion by the end of the month, then a Mitsubishi Space Star bears closer scrutiny. The post 2002 model offers improved build quality and a number of neat packaging tricks. With used prices as they are, it deserves your attention.
Depending on what viewpoint you take, the Mitsubishi Space Star is either a worthy competitor or a tough sell. Cars like the Vauxhall Meriva and the Honda Jazz offer a good deal more in terms of clever packaging and driver appeal respectively, but the Space Star aces them both in terms of affordability and, for the time being at least, used availability. Unremarkable in any obvious way, the Space Star quietly gets on with the job in hand. If you want a car that will operate with metronomic reliability and which boasts a commonsense hassle-free nature, a used Space Star could well appeal.
