The best family cars in the UK from Citroen to Vauxhall
A CAR EXPERT has unveiled the best family cars in the UK – and they won’t break the bank.
Practicality, safety and reliability are essential for families, but finding a car with low running costs and a comfortable ride on long journeys is also important.
But drivers wouldn’t expect a family car to be as exciting to drive as a sports car, even though many of the models on this list offer an enjoyable driving experience.
Family hatchbacks continue to account for a significant proportion of new car sales in the UK, with many models competing in a highly competitive segment of the car market.
Conveniently, experts from Auto Express have presented the most reliable cars for families.
1. Dacia Jogger £16,305
Seven seats, plenty of space for adults and children, up to 1,807 liters of cargo space and low running costs are just a few of the many factors that earned the Dacia Jogger the title of Family Car of the Year at the 2022 New Car Awards.
And the Jogger is among the most affordable family vehicles available today, costing less than £17,000.
If you upgrade to the mid-range “Expression” trim level, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, power door mirrors, front parking sensors and air conditioning are included.
2. Skoda Octavia £22,795
According to Auto Express, the Skoda Octavia is a brilliant all-rounder that offers the essentials: competitive prices, plenty of space and practicality, useful onboard tech and a range of efficient petrol, diesel and hybrid engines.
And with a starting price of less than £24,000, the Octavia represents excellent value for money, while the 600-litre boot and huge passenger compartment make you feel like you’re driving a higher class car.
3.MG4 £26,940 £36,475
The MG4 is the company’s latest model to hit the UK market and with prices starting at under £26,000 it’s also one of the most affordable electric vehicles you can buy right now.
Three versions of the MG4 are available: SE, SE Long Range and Trophy Long Range. Both Long Range models have a 64kWh battery, good for a range of between 270 and 281 miles.
4. Cupra Born £36,475
The Cupra Born shares a number of components with its sister car, the Volkswagen ID.3, but it’s been styled and polished to be the more exciting model of the two.
They say hot hatches are some of the most popular cars money can buy, combining fun to drive and practicality in a package that won’t break the bank.
This car is equipped with a 12-inch touchscreen with sat nav, wireless smartphone mirroring, heated steering wheel, adaptive cruise control and a rear view camera.
5.Hyundai Tucson £28,916
With the fourth-generation Tucson, Hyundai is targeting some of the premium offerings in the highly competitive mid-size SUV market.
The Tucson has won Midsize SUV of the Year in our New Vehicle Awards two years in a row, thanks to its bold and distinctive looks, extensive standard equipment across the range and an overall impression of high build quality.
This comes after a car expert unveiled the top ten cars in Britain.
Also, a car expert has compiled a list of the best cars for families with three kids.
