Ideal family vehicles

If you’ve outgrown your supermini, and you need something which will comfortably take the whole family, you probably need a more practical family car. The thing is, how do you define “family car”? It probably depends on your family’s particular needs. Families in the West Midlands know what they like and are increasingly looking for a mix of style and value, which is what we can offer you at Motor Market in Cradley Heath. Here are some of the best family cars on the market.

1) Ford Focus

Ever popular, Ford’s family offering continues to lead the league tables. It handles beautifully, costs very little to run, and has plenty of options to choose from, from engines to gadgets. Lots of legroom at the front, and a decent sized footwell for the rear seats mean that it’s a nice ride for everyone in the car.

2) VW Golf

The stylish German icon only loses out to the Focus in comparison tables because it’s more expensive. Oozing class, the interior is styled to perfection, and if you can find a 1.4 TSI engine, you’re going to find it’s much cheaper to run than many of its competitors.

3) Skoda Octavia

Yes, it’s a Skoda. If you can get over the name badge, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Coming from the same stable as the VW cars, but without their premium price tag, you’re going to love the practicalities. Generous boot space, and easily enough space for five adults, some models have top spec options like climate control, parking sensors and cruise control.

4) Vauxhall Astra

Vauxhalls suffer horribly from depreciation, which is bad news for the person buying them brand new, but brilliant news if you want a used Vauxhall. You can get a well specified model for a lot less than you’d think. Every model has air con, and you’ll find more space than you know what to do with, thanks to split folding rear seats, and some of the most economical engines on the market.
