For decades now, the perfect family car has been one of the most sought-after vehicles, and today, the question still remains – which is the best of them all?
The days of popping down to your local dealer and picking your favourite three box saloon are gone. There are now more body styles than ever to choose from in SUVs, crossovers, saloons, estate and hatchbacks that all tick the right boxes.
Without further ado, below are our top 5 family cars…
Vauxhall Astra Hatchback
Vauxhall has made some great hatchbacks in its time, but the latest Astra model, which was released in 2015, must be the best family hatchback that the company has ever made. This is down to its mixture of modern technology and excellent value for money, as well as the fact that it is better built and more aesthetically pleasing than ever. We rate it as the best family car you can buy today. If you are interested in this car, visit H Mitchell Car Sales for an amazing deal on a Vauxhall Astra.
Renault Megane Hatchback
There is no doubting the fact that Renault’s latest Megane is extremely good looking. This beauty does not just lie on the outside either, as the interior exudes class. It is clear that Renault has focused on aesthetics and comfort for the Megane, but it still does not lack in quality in all other areas.
Skoda Octavia Hatchback
With a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine, alongside the incredibly spacious interior and boot, the Skoda Octavia makesa great all-round family car that you can’t go wrong with.
Seat Leon Hatchback
If you are on the hunt for an excellent value hatchback that is also good looking, then the Seat Leon is one of the best for you. The Leon is fast, comfortable, great to drive and exceptional value for money. The Leon model certainly gets our vote due to its excellent all-round capability.
Volkswagen Golf Hatchback
The Volkswagen Golf is one of the more expensive models but with itshigh-quality interior, outstanding level of comfort and of course the prestigious VW badge and reputation, it is arguably worth the extra cost. There is a narrow gap between the Skoda Octavia, Seat Leon and the Volkswagen Golf, but each has its own advantages depending on what you are looking for from a family car.
