The back of all of the current range seems to divide attention. I love it, but:

1. It must reduce boot space
2. It looks to reduce visibilty

I like stuff that looks different though, and the Megane, Espace, Avantime etc. are all certainly that!

I agree with you. Now with the Megane, I think the shape is more widely accepted & this was the demise of the Avantime - too early for the public.

The boot is quite spacious - upto the parcel shelf then its quite narrow. The parcel shelf can be filpped upside down & used as a false floor to aid long objects to be carried ie flat pack.

The visibility is terrible. Going from the MG to its relative large view to almost nothing. Cars have to be up your a**e before you can see them but its something that can be lived with.

Yeah - the ZT-T is actually quite good if a bit narrow due to the tapering tail. The Avantime is pretty modern inside though - no comparison to the MG I suspect!

Have the stopped producing the Avantime now? Can you only get the Vel Satis now?

Avantime no longer in production, don't remember ever having seen one in the UK but have seen several in France in previous years. Vel Satis no longer being produced in right-hand drive but there are a few unsold cars in the system. LHD cars were facelifted a couple of months (or so) ago, at which time the RHD option was deleted.
Currently in Ivor_E_Tower's garage:
2014 Captur dCi EDC; 2014 Ka 1.2 Zetec; 2015 C-Max 1.6 TDCI
