Most people see the idea of a family car as a boring minivan loaded with bags of grocery items at the back. That shouldn’t always be the case. With the different carmakers’ releases in the past months, the category of family cars has seen great additions that feature style and performance.
Pickles Auctions rates the top five family cars today:
The Citroen C4 Grand Picasso made its debut in the second quarter of 2014. Its sharp style and sleek form make the SUV one of the finest choices for families. The car can seat up to seven people without cramping up the space. It’s one of Citroen’s best displays of the level of detail they put into their models.
If the Honda CR-V stands for one thing, it’s all about the comfort of those who ride it. True enough; the suspension of this model works wonders no matter how rough the road is. Its latest iteration features a 2.2-litre engine, thus ensuring the machine’s power to deal with different terrains.
Hyundai Santa Fe
Hyundai has certainly put a lot of effort in making a new model of the Santa Fe SUV. Thefeatures look great on paper – and perform just as well in actual testing. With its turbo diesel engine, the SUV can reach impressive speeds without burning too much fuel. Moreover, the interiors of this car are superb. The leather seats and dashboards hold up pretty well against spills, making it perfect for families with kids.
Although the Czech automaker is not as popular as the Japanese and American ones, it has certainly carved its own niche in the industry. In the case of family cars, its Octavia model has always been a good choice. With a size that’s not as big as the typical family car, it has become the go-to choice of small families all around Australia.
Featuring the powerful V6 engine, the Toyota Kluger serves as the midpoint between style and performance for family cars. For one, it has a sleek design that boasts some sharp style lines and curves on top of comfortable seats for seven people. Add the strong components under its hood and you have the perfect model for families of all sizes.
Family cars don’t always have to be the drab, clunky minivan. Roll in style with these models and enjoy cruising with the family wherever you go.
