Taking care of a family can be stressful at the best of times, so make your family’s lives easier by buying a car that fits all of your needs. Family cars offer generous boot space, ample cabin room and advanced safety features, making for a truly comfortable journey wherever you go.
When combined, households with three and four or more people make up 37% of homes in the UK, more than those with either one or two people. This increases the demand for affordable yet high quality vehicles with enough room to carry a whole family, and their luggage, with ease.
Registrations for new passenger cars have been on the rise since reaching a low in 2011, hitting a thirteen-year high with 2,692,786 registrations in 2016.
This influx of new registrations ensures that there are plenty of functional and affordable used family cars available on the market, including Renault models such as the Kadjar, the Scenic and the Captur.

To make the most of your money, browse through the best deals on used Renault cars and discover the perfect vehicle for your family.
With the UK’s average household income for 2017 estimated to rise to around £27,200 (up by £500 from £26,700 in 2016), buying a nearly new model may be the best bet for the average family income. Nearly new cars are models that are pre-registered by the dealership, letting you buy a virtually brand new car for the affordable price of a used one.
If you’re looking for something more affordable, second hand cars are also available. Find models that are a few years old to get a good price with great features, or save even more by getting an older car and sacrifice certain trims and advanced functions.
The five seat/five door combination of a family car works well and creates extra space and entry options. Your little ones won’t have to bundle in through the front door after football practice and gone will be complaints of achy legs on long journeys, thanks to seats designed with extra space.
With the majority of UK households owning a pet – 24% owning a dog and 17% owning a cat – these larger vehicles are the perfect choice for transporting your family’s furry companions. The extra boot space and adjustable seating ensure that you can fit in a bed or cage, and their favourite toys too!
On average, 1,367 miles were driven per person for holidays, sports and other entertainment in the UK in 2016 alone. Ensure that your hours spent in the car on the way to a weekend getaway are as comfortable as possible with a reliable family car. Your kids will be comfortable in the back seats with the liberal leg and seat space, no matter how long the journey.
