Buying a new car is exciting, but it also brings a lot of questions, particularly when you're looking for a family car. Whilst safety is often the most important factor, there are other things families should consider too, such as space, comfort and even ways to keep the little ones entertained on those long road trips. As such, we're exploring the top five family cars.

Nissan X-Trail

The X-Trail combines luxury with comfort, giving families plenty of space without sacrificing on style. Plus, for parents who aren't quite ready to give up on the adventure of driving, the X-Trail has a powerful 2.0L dCi 177 engine that gives more torque and more acceleration to the vehicle. But it's also got all the safety features you could ever need from a family car. It's the best of both worlds. After all, we could all do with an extra pair of eyes on the road, and that’s exactly what you get with the X-Trail! With a variety of built-in radars and clever cameras, you can relax and enjoy the driving experience, safe in the knowledge that your family's safety is never compromised.

Vauxhall Mokka X

Thanks to the added height and increased traction, the Mokka X will keep you on track and give you added confidence., Whether you’re on the motorway or exploring the countryside, rest assured that the safety of your family has been carefully considered. As it's not uncommon for families to run into bad weather or uneven surfaces, the Mokka has an intelligent four-wheel-drive system that gives you improved stability, traction and handling. What more could you ask for?

Vauxhall Zafira

Aside from the beautiful style of the new Zafira, it's also been packed with added safety features. With a variety of new driver-assistance and safety features, the New Zafira Tourer’s front camera system gives you the sense of having an extra pair of eyes on the road for maximum safety. Some things haven’t changed in this family car, though. You'll still get the same much-loved flexible rear seats for added comfort and space, along with the same handle-anything versatility.

Nissan Juke

The Juke's mission is to protect you from the unexpected. Thanks to the Nissan Safety Shield Technologies, it can warn you about lane departure, detect moving objects and even give you blind spot warnings. Plus, with a 354-litre boot, the Juke leaves you with ample room when it comes to packing up for a family vacation!

Nissan Micra

The Micra has long been renowned for its safety features, but the newest model also boasts Nissan's Intelligent Mobility feature which acts like a sixth sense for you on the road. By monitoring your vehicle and your surroundings, the system can anticipate unpredictable situations in order to protect you. We all know it's easy to get distracted on family road trips, whether it's a glance to see how the kids are doing in the back or the stress of getting lost, so this added safety feature is a blessing.
