Our Top 10 Best Family Cars To Drive In 2022

Lease Your Ideal Family Car from Flexed For As Long As YOU Want!


The hatchback has for many years been the car of choice for families in the UK but recently it’s gone through a less popular period, with talk that it’s finally had its day, especially as more & more motorists opt for a crossover or SUV as their family runaround.

However, this is not true and has been slightly exaggerated, as the hatchback is going nowhere any time soon and continues to be an attractive choice with motorists throughout the country.

Year after 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. 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, along with everything else that family life brings.

And whilst many motorists are leaning 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, as well as being easier to park and takes up less space on the driveway.

Of course, the SUV does tempt motorists in, thanks to providing a higher driving position and easier access due to the elevated ride height, as well as being off-road capable in many instances. Therefore, 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 perfectly formed and stylish package.

The estate car is still a popular choice as a family run-around, with a large boot space that allows for your pet 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 talk to one of our friendly and helpful team members.
