Our Top 10 Best Family Cars In 2020

Lease your Favourite Family Car Today from FLEXED!

The hatchback has long been the go-to car for families in the UK but recently it’s gone through a less popular period, with many believing it’s had its day and that’s because more & more motorists are choosing a crossover or SUV as their family runaround.

However, this is not the case and has somewhat been exaggerated, as the hatchback is going nowhere any time soon and continues to be an attractive choice with motorists up and down the country.

Year-on-year, car manufacturer’s from around the world create stylish hatchbacks for us to drive and this is no easy task, as we expect a lot from them. Basically, the family car needs to deliver in many ways, from practicality to safety, comfort to reliability, plus it needs to be roomy enough for everyone to enjoy a long journey and have plenty of space in the boot for the weekly shop and everything else that comes along with family life.

And whilst many motorists are leaning more towards a bigger car such as an SUV (sport utility vehicle) or MPV (multi-purpose vehicle), the hatchback does offer greater fuel economy, is much easier to drive around town and to park up, whilst taking up less space on the driveway.

Of course, the SUV does tempt motorists in thanks to offering a higher driving position and easier access thanks to the elevated ride height, as well as being off-road capable in many instances, so it’s easy to see why a lot of people choose one over a hatchback and why they’ve become incredibly popular here in the UK.

If you’ve a large family, then an MPV is going to be the type of vehicle you’ll consider, as they offer 7 to 8 seats but for most families in the UK, the good-old hatchback is a great all-rounder as it has everything you need all wrapped up in one very stylish, neat package.

The estate car is still a popular choice as a family run-around, as it’s got a large boot space that allows for the family pooch to come along too! We’ve got a wide range of estate cars to choose from at Flexed if it’s your desired family car – visit our website or call 0800 311 8290 to chat with a member of our team.

Ultimately, what you choose to drive all depends on how your family functions, so whilst a hatchback might be right for one family, a crossover or larger SUV, or even an MPV, could be the perfect solution for another – it all comes down to what works best for you and your family.
