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, 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. 

The top 10 family cars

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 of buyer’s remorse. We’ve broken down the various styles, such as estates, SUVs and hatchbacks, and included the key facts, like boot space and miles per gallon, 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. That way you can compare all the cars easily and hopefully make the right choice for you.

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.
