If you’re planning a staycation here in the UK, you’re probably wanting to make sure you’ve got the right car for the job, especially if you’ve got a partner, kids and perhaps a pooch in tow. So, with that in mind, this list of cars might be the perfect companion for your trip. Each comes with plenty of cabin space, a comfortable drive and loads of luggage room.
A comfortable, mid-sized SUV offering clever packaging solutions and a decent boot making it a sure-fire hit with families.
The SEAT Ateca comes with advanced technology including wireless connection to the infotainment screen with your smartphone as well as wireless charging. The 10.25 inch Digital Cockpit also splits into three views, allowing you to focus on the road ahead when setting off on your staycation.
Volkswagen Golf Estate
Volkswagen has a real knack for making the most out of a single model. The Golf Estate is no exception. It brings more in the way of practicality while retaining the latest Golf’s technology-focused cabin.
The Golf Estate is noticeably longer than its predecessor, which allows it to offer more rear-seat space and a larger boot, too. You can find up to 611 litres of storage available in the boot, rising to 1,642 litres with the rear seats folded flat.
Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace
The Tiguan has been around for a while now and has built a reputation for being a stylish and practical family SUV. But if you want a little more space, then the aptly named Tiguan Allspace might just be the answer.
Underneath it’s virtually the same car as the Seat Tarraco, but it gets the Volkswagen treatment meaning a sleek infotainment system, virtual cockpit and strong levels of build quality. Another option that can seat up to seven people, the Tiguan Allspace is a great choice for large families or those wanting to take the dogs away with them too.
Peugeot's latest models sport a stylish and well-made interior that puts it streets ahead of other mainstream models. That’s true here with the 5008, with high-quality materials and some impressive technology used.
There are also plenty of practical features such as underfloor storage, a massive boot when the rear seats are down, and loads of configurability to suit any size of family and their luggage. It also benefits from Peugeot’s latest range of economical engines.
