BMW 1 Series

When you think of a family car, the idea of a slightly non-descript vehicle that values safety and practicality of aesthetic appeal might come to mind. That’s not surprising, many family vehicles are like this, the BMW 1 Series, however, isn’t one of them.

The BMW 1 Series is a sleek and beautiful vehicle that would suit a young professional just as easily as a nuclear family. On the outside it is flashing and modern while on the inside it is roomy and protected. You will also benefit from high tech infotainment and a reliable brand.

Ford Focus

If the BMW 1 Series is the car you don’t expect to be an excellent family car, then the Ford Focus is quite the opposite. The Ford Focus is not necessarily visually appealing, but it does have the quality where it counts, which in this case is on the inside.

The Ford Focus is the ideal family car because of its size and shape. You can easily take this car to the local shops and park it anywhere, even with the car full of your kids and their friends. When the day is over you can easily wipe down the interior.

Honda Civic

If you want a family car that is functional like the Focus but stylish like the 1 Series, then consider the Honda Civic. The Honda Civic is a futuristic car from the past. So, what does that mean? It means it has a retro style that once looked futuristic to a bygone generation. But that’s what makes it so appealing.

As well as excellent visual appeal, the Honda Civic has a low slung driver’s seat a bit like a sports car. If you’re wondering why this is a good family car, consider the space you have in the back and the size of the hatchback overall. You also don’t miss out in terms of performance and safety.

Kia Ceed

Once again, we have a family car that doesn’t stand out in the category of aesthetic appeal, but the Kia Creed does have many other virtues. If you do care much about the car you drive when picking the kids up from school or dropping them off at the local sports club, the Kia Creed is an excellent choice.

Not that it’s ugly, far from it, it simply doesn’t have the same cool factor as the 1 Series or the Civic. So, what does it have? For one thing it has size and space, perfect for kids in the back and luggage for road trips. Moreover, it has a full range of trims, and comes with a 7 year warranty, available using Car finance.

Mercedes-Benz A-Class

The Mercedes-Benz A-Class is a luxury vehicle that doubles as a family car. This vehicle is for those who like to travel in style and comfort, even if it is just down to the local shops. And why not, once you have a taste of what’s on offer with the A-Class it’s hard to go back.

The Mercedes-Benz A-Class integrates performance, style and comfort for an excellent all round driving experience. As well as having plenty of room in the back to accommodate your family, the dashboard in front is a full range digital display with modern infotainment system.
