Top Five Used Cars for Families

A good family car should offer plenty of room for everyone to travel in comfort, as well as being efficient and reliable.

We regularly update our stock with used cars that are popular among drivers with children; here are some of the great options we have available.


Vauxhall Astra

Used Vauxhall Astra cars from Mk5 models through to the latest Mk7s have a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating, which is a boxed ticked straight away for drivers with kids. The model offers a decent drive and despite being well-equipped it is remarkably affordable.

Volkswagen Golf

The Volkswagen Golf is the model on which a large portion of other family cars are based, which goes to show just how good it is. It offers everything that this class of car should: comfort, a solid build, economy and an enjoyable drive. Models since 2004 have a five-star safety rating.

Honda Civic

The Honda Civic has been around for a while, now in its tenth generation, and it has never been such a fierce competitor in the family car segment. Offering a spacious boot and great driving dynamics, Honda Civic cars are excellent for families.

Nissan Qashqai

Another vehicle to boast a five-star safety score, the Nissan Qashqai is a slightly larger option, offering ample space and comfort for adults and children. Being a bigger car, this crossover is slightly pricier to buy and maintain than other options on this list, but it does benefit from a boosted ride height and despite its size, its handling abilities are impressive.

Vauxhall Zafira

If you have a large family, or constantly find yourself transporting your children’s friends, this flexible seven-seat MPV is an excellent option.  When you require less seating and more storage, the seats in the Vauxhall Zafira fold down easily to create plenty of boot space and a comfortable, roomy cabin.
