Considering buying an SUV for a family car? The SUV market has exploded in popularity in recent years and there are now many excellent models available which are well-suited to families due to their size, storage capacity, comfort, safety, tech and performance amongst other attributes.
With so many to choose from it can be hard to decide, so here is a look at a few of the best cars currently available.
Audi is a brand favoured by parents and this is for good reason because they have a history of manufacturing comfortable, practical and safe vehicles. The stylish A5 is no different and a great all-rounder and, arguably, the best SUV on the market.
Families looking for a small SUV but one with ample space will be tempted by the Skoda Karoq, which is a highly practical SUV that has a comfortable driving experience and plenty of equipment as standard. This is a no-frills option which will be more affordable than others in the class, especially in the used car market. If you do buy second-hand then be sure to arrange an extended warranty from a specialist like ALA for financial protection.
Large families will want to take a look at the Tarraco from Seat, which is the Spanish manufacturer’s first foray into the large SUV market and one which is highly impressive. In addition to coming with seven seats and plenty of space, the Tarraco is surprisingly agile for a car of this size and it is competitively priced so it will appeal to many.
Iconic British manufacturer’s F-PACE is a superb luxury option and a vehicle which ticks all the boxes that you require in this class. The beautiful F-PACE has a comfortable and spacious interior, remarkable handling for a car this size, plenty of space for storage and an enjoyable driving performance.
The XC60 has a card up its sleeve which make it a favourite with parents in that this is the safest car tested by Euro NCAP ever, but it is not just excellent safety that makes this a good family SUV. The XC60 from Volvo is also a vehicle with a high-quality and comfortable interior along with stylish looks.
The family SUV market is competitive which is good news for parents, but it does also mean that it is hard to know what the best available models are. The above are all excellent options and hopefully at least one will be well-suited to your preferences.
