Sometimes you just need more space
Have you got a family that seems to keep expanding with one day? Maybe you’ve had a new addition to the clan, or little ones are growing up and need to stretch their legs a little more when in the back seats?
Whatever the case, sometimes you just need more space. Fortunately, there are plenty of cars that are perfectly suited to delivering a little extra room. Let’s check them out.
The SEAT Tarraco ticks plenty of our boxes here. It’s got seven seats, so it’s ideal for larger families or if you’re often sharing rides to school, but fold that rearmost row of seats down and you’ve got access to a really large boot.
It’s solidly made, too, with loads of robust plastics used throughout the interior that will help to keep the Tarraco looking smart even at the end of a very busy day.
Fancy a slice of the electric car life but want that extra roominess too? The Volkswagen ID.4 could be the car for you. It’s the largest electric car that Volkswagen currently offers - outside of the van - which means that it’s got loads of interior space and a well-sized boot.
It’s capable of delivering up to 328 miles of range, too, so it’s a great EV choice for longer-distance drivers too.
Now bear with us. The Honda HR-V may look a little dinky from the outside, but it’s got a whole lot more space inside than you might expect. In typical Honda fashion everything is solidly put together, but the flexible ‘Magic Seats’ which can be folded forwards or back means that you’ve got loads of extra luggage space should you need it.
But most importantly, the HR-V delivers acres of legroom and a really good amount of headroom, so it’s great for taller passengers.
Land Rover Discovery Sport
The Discovery Sport might be the smallest car in the Land Rover range, but it’s the one that feels most suited to family use. That’s because it’s got really flexible seating options, while most versions come with seven seats as standard.
Plus, everything inside the Discovery Sport is chunky and well-made, while its high position gives a great view of the road ahead.
The Audi Q5 has been a core part of the firm’s SUV range for some time now, but it has proven so popular due to its upmarket interior and great range of efficient engines. But moreover, it’s got that space that families need, while the rear seats are easily accessible - something people putting in child seats will appreciate.
You can also opt for the performance SQ5 if you’re a family which values speed.
Peugeot 508 SW
SUVs have dominated this list, so why not consider an estate car too? The 508 SW has head-turning looks and a really futuristic cabin, but it also has a large boot and plenty of legroom for those sitting in the back.
Smaller kids might like the claw-shaped lights at the front, too, which give the 508 SW a really cool look at night.
