The Best Family Car Guide: Which Car Is Right For Your Family?

Looking for the best family friendly cars? Choosing a car that is suitable for the whole family can be a challenge. Space, safety, fuel economy and more all come into play when deciding what the right car will be for your family.

New research has revealed that the Ford Galaxy is the best family car, followed by the Hyundai Ioniq and Ford S-MAX.

The research, released by Electric Ride On Cars, has analysed features that make a car suitable for families, such as boot space, dimensions, price, warranty and the vehicle’s safety rating out of five according to Euro NCAP.

Top 10 most family friendly cars:

1. Ford Galaxy

The Ford Galaxy has an incredible 1,301 litres of boot space and benefits from a five-star safety rating from the Euro NCAP.

2. Hyundai Ioniq (Hybrid)

The Hyundai Ioniq has the best fuel economy, with 62.8 miles per gallon, a five-star safety rating, and one of the better warranties on the list, with five years (unlimited miles).

3. Ford S-MAX

The Ford S-MAX has a large boot space of 965 litres and is also one of the more affordable options too, at £29,820, with a commendable MPG value of 47.1 too.

The research also revealed the best family cars in a number of categories.

Top Family Crossover SUV – Renault Captur comes in at #9 and also has the lowest price tag in the top 10 at £19,095.

Top Family SUV – Land Rover Discovery comes in at #5 with great storage space of 922 litres and overall dimensions of 4,470 x 2,045 x 1,450, but this was offset by the high cost of £53,655.

Top Small Family Car – Citroën C4 comes in at #4 with an impressive MPG of 62.8 and a very affordable price tag of just £23,840.

Top Large Family Car – Ford Mondeo comes in at #11 as it benefits from more space meaning other factors were affected such as fuel consumption and price.

Top Family MPV (multi-purpose vehicle) – Ford Galaxy comes in at #1 and has the best boot space at 1,301 litres.

Heelys Rolls Into Spring With New Collection

Heelys, the original two-in-one wheely shoe launched in 2000, is preparing for the upcoming Easter holidays with its new spring collection. Ideal for encouraging an active, healthy lifestyle, the stylish designs will ensure kids (big and small) will roll through the holidays with ease.

The collection consists of 19 designs, including three brand new Heelys shapes: Reserve Ex, Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood. The Reserve Ex has a basketball shoe style, while the Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood tap into the current Y2K trend for an extra chunky sole.

Match your Heelys to your mood, with designs split across two main aesthetics – a darker colour scheme vs. a lighter, spring-inspired palette. Think camouflage print, graffiti text and paint drips contrasting with pastel colours, tie-dye, metallic laces, foil and rainbow print.

Available in the UK and Europe on the Heelys website and retailers, the collection is available in sizes C12-7 across single or two-wheeled styles. RRPs range from £49.99 to £69.99.
