Family Friendly Car Options for the Larger Family

When you have a large family, you need a large safe family car. And this blog post here shows you some of safest family cars on the market.

In the past the most obvious solution was to invest in a people-carrier or an SUV. These days there are plenty of options open to you. Saloons and hatchbacks have been built with more space making them suitable for the larger family. If you’re looking to save money, it could be a good idea to buy a used car from the Jennings Motor Group. Check out the best of the larger family-friendly cars below before you make a decision.
1. Skoda Octavia Estate 
If you don’t want to sacrifice style for practicality then the Skoda Octavia Estate is an excellent choice. As featured on Carbuyer.co.uk, this stylish car has both power and fuel efficiency. It has been awarded a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating and is built to a high standard. The most affordable model is the 1.6 litre TDi diesel. It actually has the biggest amount of boot space out of any other car in its class. 
2. Ford Mondeo
You may be surprised to find the Ford Mondeo on the list, but it is by far one of the most popular family cars available in the UK. The 2007 model is substantially bigger than the previous models. There is plenty of interior and boot space and what’s more, the car is really affordable to buy and run. One of its best features is its smooth suspension. You are guaranteed a comfortable drive. 
3. Hyundai i40 Estate
The Hyundai i40 Estate is one of the leading cars in its class. It is worth noting that this car has been created with comfort rather than fun in mind. There is a lot of interior space for five passengers and plenty of boot space too. The rear seats actually recline for additional comfort. Other impressive features include a leather trimmed steering wheel and air conditioning. 
4. Vauxhall Insignia 
Vauxhall had a huge task ahead of them to come up with a car that could rival the Vectra. However, they managed it with the family-friendly Insignia. If you’re looking for a car that has style as well as comfort and practicality then this is ideal. As featured on Honest John, this car is a good all-round vehicle and you even have an option to invest in the slightly more powerful VXR model.
5. Citroen C5 Tourer Estate 
The large Citroen C5 Tourer Estate benefits from the comfiest suspension in the class. If you opt for the high end Exclusive model you’ll also benefit from laminated windows, which help with noise reduction. 
These are just five of the best cars designed with large families in mind. It is always worth thinking about the features you would like included, as well as what is most important to you before buying. Compare as many different models as you can and don’t forget to take the cost of insurance into account too. If buying a used car, you also need to carry out a number of checks to ensure the seller is genuine and to avoid forking out a lot of money on repairs.

  1. Ahh this is so sweet. It's something I also always wanted for my kids to have animals growing up but I was devastated to find out my son is highly allergic and this will never be possible. I think it's such an amazing up brining to have pets around. I did growing up and I have great memories of our dogs and cats. Animal - human bond is special. So glad your little one has it with your cat now too! Lovely post love the photos.
