Choosing which car to buy for your family is anything but an easy decision. You’ve got to find one that’s safe, comfortable enough to carry the kids and elderly parents smoothly, and roomy enough to house prams, luggage, maybe a dog and the rest of the paraphernalia that comes with family life. It also has to be cheap to run, a nice ride and not break the bank in the first place. In short: it needs to be good at just about everything. So we teamed up with the experts at Auto Trader to give you some help when it comes to deciding which car could work for you and your family. 

So how does it work?

Using Auto Trader’s ranking of the top 10 family cars, we’ve pulled out the key information we think you need to help you steer clear (pun intended) of buyer’s remorse. We’ve broken down the various styles such as estates, SUVs and hatchbacks with key facts such as boot space and MPG that are important to you if you’re in the market for a new motor. The best bit? We’ve highlighted how much a basic model could cost new as well as the price of an average car insurance premium from us so you can get a good idea of how much you might need to spend and what you’ll be getting all in one handy place. That way you can compare easily and hopefully make the right choice for you.

And once you’ve decided on which car you fancy, why not get a car insurance quote with us and see if you can save some money on your new wheels too?
