Family Hatchbacks

Hatchbacks continue to be a great choice for families and the cars below are regularly among the top sellers across Europe. What’s more, if you are on a budget all the cars below can be found for a decent price.

Volkswagen Golf

There’s a reason why the Golf is one of the best-selling family hatchbacks in Europe, that’s because it does everything extremely well. It’s fun to drive, has a practical boot, can fit five adults inside and is comfortable. This is often the benchmark that other family hatchbacks are measured by and remains one of the best cars on the market today.

Ford Focus

If you’re looking to get more value for your money then the Ford Focus is hard to beat. The third top-seller in the family hatchback sector the Focus may not have the build quality of the Golf but it is more fun to drive. Another tick box in favour of the Focus is price. Those looking for a practical car that is reliable and cheap to repair will love the Ford Focus.

Skoda Octavia

Once the punchline of jokes, Skoda has been transformed into a reputable brand and is always towards the top of best-selling car brands across Europe. While not as fun to drive as the Golf or Focus above, it is supremely reliable, boasts a cavernous interior and some very efficient engines. Diesel engines are the most popular and the engine range is surprisingly refined.

Small SUVs

One of the newest segments on the market, small SUVs or crossovers as they are also known are an enticing option for many family buyers. Surprisingly spacious inside, they retain the driving characteristics of a family hatchback with the advantage of a higher driving position.

Renault Captur

Launched in 2013, the Renault Captur is the best-selling small crossover in Europe and it’s easy to see why. With a choice of two petrol or diesel engines, the Renault Captur is economical to run, easy to drive and practical to boot. The smaller petrol engine is perfect for city use, while the 1.5 turbocharged diesel engine combines’ economy with performance.

Dacia Duster

Anyone looking for a simple, affordable and practical SUV can’t go far wrong with the Dacia Duster.  This no-frills budget car brand may be relatively new to the market, but it is already becoming a popular choice with families. Now in the second generation, there are some bargains to be enjoyed on the used car market with a relatively young car available for a very modest price.
