As I’ve talked about in other posts, we’re in the market for a new family car which means that I’ve been spending a LOT of time online researching cars which would be suitable for the five of us (because Chuck gets a vote too, OBVS!). So far, I’ve come up with a shortlist of cars that we’d like and I thought I’d share them with you in case you’re also in the market for a vehicle and need some inspiration:

Ford Kuga

Motorpoint has some amazing deals on Ford Kuga at the moment which is enough to make me consider them as a really good option. They’re five seaters, but we don’t really need any more than that and Ford are often really economical and run but also to repair if they need it.┬áThe Ford Kuga can provide you with fantastic drivability and handling, as well as a spacious and comfortable interior. This makes the Kuga an excellent choice for any young professional or as a safe, reliable family car.

Volvo XC90

We’re huge fans of Volvo in this house and will probably stay loyal to our current make of car. We’d also like something with the option of four wheel drive as it would make the possibility of snow less scary now that we live in the middle of nowhere, so this is also really high on our list.

Kia Sportage

Kia are a relatively new manufacturer in the UK and they’re also really reasonably priced. The Sportage is a good sized car that would probably do a really good job of hauling us all around, plus Chuck, random junk that the girls take everywhere with them, bikes etc!

Volkswagen Touran

My sister-in-law drove a Touran until very recently and her experiences of the car are enough to make us consider one for ourselves. They have flexible seating which means that you can have either 5 seats and decent boot space or 7 seats but less room for luggage. She was also really complimentary about the way the car actually drives and misses it now she’s changed over to a different car.

SsangYong Turismo

Yet another relatively unknown brand in the UK, SsangYong are a Chinese manufacturer which are making strides for offering high quality vehicles for a fraction of the price. The interior of the Turismo is consistently ranked highly in terms of practicality for families and they’re basically the cheapest vehicle available for the size. What’s not to love about that?

What family car do you have? Do you love it and would you recommend it? Leave me a comment below!
