Best family cars
If you’re looking to buy a family car then you are in luck, because it is one of the car world's most competitive sectors, so there is a huge range of models to choose from. Not too long ago, options were limited to hatchbacks like the VW Golf, larger family cars such as the Ford Mondeo, or estate versions of the two. Now, though, you can also choose from SUVs, crossovers and MPV people carriers.
All this competition means that there are numerous models on offer that are solidly built, practical and cheap to run, yet also good to drive. Many manufacturers have bolstered their warranties recently, too, so you get long-term peace of mind. Some showrooms also offer decent discounts – it doesn’t hurt to haggle – and attractive deals are available on some cars, too.
To help narrow your search, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favourite family cars on the market today, so keep reading for the CarBuyer.co.uk top ten.
