I've always been a fan of MPVs since the time I saw the Renault Espace in the UK. This was further reinforced when I got to travel in a Ford Focus S-MAX in the UK and Opel Zafira in Paris. Although my first car was a hatchback it was more like a stop gap arrangement. When it was time to graduate my default choice was a MPV.
Don't like sedans because they aren't practical for my usage. How big a sedan it may be, you can't recline your backseat not increase its rear legroom.
Found nothing spectacular about SUVs. May be the Scorpio/Safari duo had put me off. Hate them both.
The second best alternative to a MPV is a hatchback. Perfect for the city.
At the time I was on the lookout for a MPV I finally decided to settle with the Innova although I wasn't a fan of its looks and its noisy engine. Ertiga was launched at the right time and it was exactly what the doctor ordered! Booked one without even a test drive as I was sold out on its looks and space and also its amazing diesel engine. Now I'm enjoying every moment with my Ertiga and all my future cars will be a MPV.

Come to think of it, in today's urban scenario, a big hatch with a reasonably large boot space would be the perfect balance between compactness, economy and practicality.
It would not only replace a sedan which occupies more space while parking and turning but offer the space and comfort for passengers and luggage and would be at home in the highway too.
A case in the point are hatches like the newly launced Sail UVA, i20, Jazz, Punto and even the Figo which offer most of what an average urban user would require.
For an additional big car there is always the SUV if one can afford it!
