Finding the right automobile is important for any type of motorist, but especially for families. When you have a family, you need a vehicle which is large enough to comfortably fit everybody in, but it will also need to be practical, reliable and economical. Finding a car that ticks all of these boxes is tricky, but there have been three excellent releases this year that any parent should take a close look at.

It is one of the most spacious mid-sized people carriers available, which means that you can comfortably fit the whole family and luggage. It is also a unique and refreshing design both inside and out. On top of this, the C4 Picasso has a range of efficient engines and it is cheap to run. When you find a reliable Citroen dealer like Robins & Day, this automobile can have a surprisingly low price-tag too.
The Skoda Superb is exactly that and a great investment for any family. Like the C4 Picasso, the Superb has a huge interior so that everybody can sit comfortably, plus the enormous boot ensures that you can fill it up with luggage. The new 2017 version has been updated with a host of impressive technology and driver assists - these improve the safety and driving experience which are both very important factors for families. On top of all this, the Skoda Superb has efficient engines and it is competitively priced, so financially it is a strong investment.
The new Seat Leon shares a lot with the Volkswagen Golf’s mechanicals, but its low price-tag makes it even more appealing. It has been given a facelift and an updated 1.6-litre diesel engine or turbocharged 1.0-litre petrol engine, plus the responsive handling makes it a joy to drive. Safety has also been given a huge boost thanks the new technology incorporated. One of the main selling points, however, is the affordability of the Leon - this makes it enticing to young families and/or those that are on a tight budget.
