Best cars for family holidays
Space, ease of use and a good infotainment system are all vital when looking for the perfect car for a family holiday
Space is always at a premium when planning a family holiday, so large SUVs and MPVs are usually the way to go. However, there are many other factors that should also be taken into account, such as ease of use and a good infotainment system. These features can help make the time away go a little bit smoother. Below are our picks for that perfect family holiday.
Citroen Grand C4 Picasso
The Grand C4 Picasso has set a high bar for carrying the whole family in comfort. Citroen has prioritised ease of use and practicality with this car, and with flat-folding seats in the second and third rows, wide-opening doors and generous rear legroom, it remains the standard bearer for family flexibility.
There’s a touch of class, too, thanks to its hi-tech dashboard, modern styling and panoramic sunroof, while passengers in the back get some attention with rear air vents and sun blinds on higher-spec models.
