3 Cars Fit For Your Family

This is a guest post from Jaguar, cars with a rich history for eighty years.

While no two families are alike, one thing that most have in common is the need for car space. Choosing one that suits your family’s needs is by no means easy; not only do you need to look at efficiency but you also need to consider practicality. It stop being about style and becomes more about what you actually need to get from A to B without having two people cram the boot down. You want your new car to be pack with features that keeps you and your family safe without breaking the bank. One that has strong consumer ratings and an impressive cost proprietorship status. Here are three cars that do just that.

If you’re looking for that WOW factor that’s also practical, then say hello to Jaguar’s XF Luxury Sedan. In the past, Jaguar have been known as the kitty cat of the car industry: self-absorbed and untrainable. These days the cat has been tamed and the latest Jaguar XF is better equipped with families in mind. It boasts a five seater that comfortably fits five large sized adults and has plenty of junk in the trunk with a large 500 litre boot. The entry point price of $70,000 is attractive enough to lure anyone away from the more expensive luxury models, but that doesn’t mean it’s lacking in the features department. Including leather faced seats, woodgrain and metal cabin trim, 17-inch alloys, touchscreen control, a pleasant 10 speaker audio, six airbags, graphics park display, dusk sensitive bi-xenon headlights with wipers, brake electronics and all the high end tech to keep the teenagers happy.

Kia Rondo

Combing the practicality of an SUV with the look and feel of a car, the Kia Rondo is perfect for those on a tight budget who are looking for a discrete model that packs a punch in the cargo section. It blurs the lines between a car, minivan and crossover utility vehicle. It comes in at a low price of $17,395 which is surprising for a car that holds seven seats and contains all the safety features of a luxury model.

Mazda 5

The increasing price of petrol has forced a lot of drivers to size down to smaller cars with more efficient tanks. Unfortunately, if you have more than three kids you can’t just run down to your nearest car dealer and buy a Yaris; it’s not going to be practical for your needs. But what if I told you, that you could have it all? A minivan with a fuel friendly solution? That is what the Mazda5 range is offering for larger families. There’s room for six in this mid-sized package with sliding doors that are beneficial for parents needing to get babies into their car seats. It doesn’t make you feel like you’re driving a small bus and it is reasonably priced starting at $18,000 right up to $28,000
