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.
