Skoda Superb Family Car

The competition between family cars has never been stronger with a number of models all competing to be the best in its category.

Whether it's SUVs, estate cars or the traditional family hatchback, family cars now come in all different shapes and sizes.

But which are the best family cars? What exactly makes a good family car? Well, according to WhatCar? these are considered the best on the market.

Skoda Octavia


The Skoda Octavia was named the WhatCar? Family Car of the Year 2016, making it the family car to have of the moment. The reasons for its nomination come thanks to its incredibly spacious and comfortable layout.

Features on even the most basic entry-level trim are of quality standard, with air-conditioning, alloy wheels, bluetooth, DAB digital radio and a USB socket included.

Although it's not just the size that earned the Octavia the accolade, according to WhatCar? the value for money also makes it a dream car for families.

Audi A3 and Audi A3 Sportback


Not quite Family Car of the Year, but the Audi A3 was named the WhatCar? Car of the Year 2013 which is no mean feat.

This model would make an excellent choice as a family car thanks to its balance between comfort and control, as well as a well built cabin that holds plenty of space. For even more practicality there is the A3 Sportback which features five door.

If efficient engines, space and style are on your check list, you can't go far with this Audi premium family hatchback.

Another Skoda model gets a mention in WhatCar's choice of best family cars. The Superb has been picked out for its lower cost compared to other large executive cars, despite being bigger than most.

With efficient engines and strong resale values, the Superb has many reasons why it should be considered one of the better family car options on the market.

BMW 1 Series

One of the smaller family cars on the market, the BMW 1 Series makes up for being small in stature with its strong performance, economy and emissions.

When these qualities are put alongside other factors such as good to drive yet cheap to run, the 1 Series is ideal for those looking for a compact premium family hatchback.

Ford Mondeo

One of the larger family cars on the market, the Ford Mondeo benefits from a spacious interior,  large boot, and low purchase price especially when compared to its direct rival, the Volkswagen Passat.

Emissions are low as well, and buyers can also choose a petrol-electric hybrid version which is the only variant that features a saloon body.
