Luxury: Practical Cars to Buy For a Small Family

So you’ve got two kids? Congratulations. You can add a new car to that ever-expanding list of expensive things you need to buy this year. Family car should be practical, reliable – and hopefully enjoyable too.

Check out the list of best practical cars for small families below:

For value, nothing can beat Dacia at the moment. The Duster is a blessing to families who desire a new car but haven’t been able to come up with the money until now. The Dacia may not be the last word in sophistication but it does offer plenty of space and chunky 4x4 looks for under nine grand. Cleaning up?

Renault’s new Captur is an SUV-style car based on the new Clio, but has a huge range of personalisation extras. It’s versatile, with a spacious sliding rear seat and an adjustable boot floor, more ground clearance and loads of interior space.

B-Max brings new levels of clever practicality to the supermini segment with its sliding rear doors, there’s tons of space inside, a massive boot and a folding front passenger seat to create a 2.3m-long load area. It’s brilliant to drive especially in EcoBoost petrol form. 

This ix20 car looks everyday and presentable this is a truly practical, appealing family choice. It’s huge inside and the sliding rear seats mean you can maximise space for passengers or all your family shopping in the boot. It’s great value and comes with a five-year warranty.

Skoda Rapid is a sensible family car at a sensible price, it’s… well, extremely sensible. The Rapid is absolutely enormous inside, both for people and luggage, and has lots of equipment considering its cheap price. Don’t forget the near-identical SEAT Toledo, too.

The Juke is better than the new Nissan because of its highly individual style and keen pricing.
The Verso-S has low windowsills and a high roof so it’s a gift to get into, and once inside there’s loads of room for the kids and all their gubbins. If you need even more space, consider the larger Toyota Verso.

The VW Golf is a traditional five-door family hatchback, truly great all-rounder, boasting space, comfort and sharp driving manners. And fuel economy: in 1.6 TDI BlueMotion form the Golf averages an astonishing 88.3mpg and emits just 85g/km of CO2

The SUV Qashqai has been a sales phenomenon, and so many buyers are not wrong – this is a great family choice, with space, equipment and ease of driving all on its side.

C Max is also the ideal family car, with adaptable, removable seating and a massive boot. It may be pricey, but it’s a truly great all-rounder.
