Family Cars

These cars have to tick a lot of boxes. As their name suggest, there needs to be enough interior space for a family to get comfy, but the boot will need to be big enough – and practical enough – to handle the luggage that goes with them. The judges were looking for a top safety rating, too.

However, the winners needed to go beyond these staple features by offering a fun drive and affordable running costs to ensure that owning the car is every bit as cheap as buying it in the first place.
