Best large family cars
Large family cars need to offer plenty of space, low running costs, and enough power to haul around a heavy load from time-to-time. But they also need to be affordable and robust enough to cope with the day-to-day demands of family life.
It wasn’t so long ago that this category was dominated by cars from Ford and Vauxhall, but that's no longer the case. Brands like Skoda, Hyundai and Mazda have produced some incredible family cars in recent years, and the class is now one of the most competitive around.
And models in the family car class are no longer the only cars suitable for coping with transporting a partner and children. There are plenty of MPVs and SUVs that offer superb practicality and running costs. While many of the best large executive cars double up as fantastic family vehicles.
