Take a look at 10 cars that are good enough for your family.
Both categories offer a blend of additional space and style. However, there's more to a family car than space, which brings us to safety and comfort.
Did you know that cars fitted with the Auto Emergency Braking feature are 38% less likely to collide with the car in front of them? A family car is one that is able to combine space with other essential safety features like the Automatic Braking System (AEB), which either detects and warns you about impending collisions or autonomously grinds the car to halt whenever it detects an imminent collision.
