Best Family Cars 2021
Often a vehicle is one of the most valuable possessions you own, and it is important to choose a car which meets your requirements. Typically, when you’re looking for a new family car, factors such as affordability, comfort and practicality are particularly desirable. Therefore, we’ve put together our selection of top family cars to lease which we feel meet these requirements.
First launched in 2017, this well-built, compact SUV has been excelling in its segment. As expected with a Volvo car, the XC40 comes with exceptional safety and driver assist features which particularly makes it an appealing family car. In terms of the interior, we think the Volvo XC40 is beautifully designed and ingenious storage space is an excellent addition. The 430 litres boot space is slightly smaller than rival SUVs such as the BMW X1 and Mercedes-Benz GLA, however, it’s still a spacious 5-seater. As for the infotainment system, it's clear that advanced technology has been incorporated into the design. In particular, stay connected on your journey as this model is fully compatible with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay.
The Kia Sportage is a premium-looking, family SUV with an affordable price tag, especially with car leasing options. This popular Kia model offers a decent level of standard equipment and a practical interior. As with all Kia models, the Sportage comes with Kia’s seven-year/100,000-mile warranty as standard. In terms of interior space, the Sportage is generally on par with most family car rivals, although the boot size is bigger than the popular Nissan Qashqai. If you’re looking for a sportier option to lease, then a Gt-Line or GT-Line S version would appeal to you.
The Ford Focus is an excellent choice if you’re looking for an economical, well equipment, family lease car. Arguably one of the best Ford cars available in the leasing market, the Ford Focus offers excellent affordability and reliability. Despite having strong competition from the likes of the Volkswagen Golf and Vauxhall Astra, the Ford Focus remains one of the UK’s best-selling cars. The latest Ford Focus appeals to families due to its spacious interior, new look and high level of safety features. Built with efficient engines, this Ford family car is available as either the Focus Hatchback or Focus Estate. Whichever bodystyle you opt for, you’re guaranteed a high-quality built lease car.
If you’re looking for a large premium SUV with seven-seats and class-leading practicality, then the Volvo XC90 might be the best family car for you. First introduced in 2002, the XC90 is currently one of the leading SUVs on the market. Volvo are renowned within the automotive industry for offering leading safety features throughout their range and the XC90 definitely signifies this. Combining advanced safety, stylish design and a generous level of equipment as standard, the XC90 could be your ideal next Volvo lease. However, this family car is more expensive than the previous cars mentioned, although car leasing is more cost effective than buying a car.
Last but certainly not least is the Seat Leon. The Seat Leon is a family hatchback offering smart styling, excellent practicality, as well as value for money. This is a similar size to the Ford Focus, although it often gets overlooked in its class. However, we think this is a great lease option if you're looking for a sporty looking yet practical family car. In fact, the Seat Leon 1.5 TSI 130 Evo FR has been awarded What Car? Family Car of the Year 2021. We particular like the Leon for its comfortable and enjoyable drive. It comes with an excellent range of standard equipment and the infotainment system is easy to use.
There’s also an ST estate option which has 620 litres of boot space and a substantial interior. Although, if you opt for the e-hybrid estate version then boot space is smaller at 470 litres. Whether you opt for a hatchback or estate, you won't be disappointed! This is a great all-rounder family car and we feel it's one of the best in its class.
