Top 5 Family Cars for 2020

By Angela Monroe - February 11, 2020

Family cars are very popular with Australians. As we know, driving for Australians can be a real family affair. Whether you use your car for getting the kids to school each day or packing it up for weekends away with friends. Family cars are essential for happy parents and happy children.

There are lots of considerations for a good family car including:

  • Safety
  • Space
  • Practicality
  • Technology

We’ve rounded up our top 5 family cars for 2020 so you can get on the road and enjoy!

Honda CR-V VTi-LX

The SUV is a firm favourite with families across the country. The Honda CR-V is a really popular model in Australia –with good reason. You can expect to pay around $44,000 depending on extras that you might want to add. It offers a 5-year unlimited km warranty which is always tempting when you’re as dependent on a car as most families become.

The 5-star safety rating is attractive to any parent. Parents of younger children will enjoy the ISOFIX anchorage system and childproof rear door locks. Apple Car Play comes as a Base Feature, meaning long journeys won’t be short of entertainment options!

Toyota Camry SL Hybrid

There’s a reason that around 5 Camrys are sold in Australia for every one of its closest competitors. It’s quite simply an excellent family car. The petrol-electric hybrid is appealing for all sorts of owners and situations. Expect to pay around $40,000 with the SL being at the more luxury end of the range.

With a 5-star ANCAP safety rating, you can be reassured that your family will be well protected. Especially with the wealth of safety features that come as a standard, including rear cross-traffic alert. This is a surprisingly quiet vehicle, which can mean a lot to a family where any chance to eradicate noise is welcomed!

Skoda Octavia RS245 Sedan

This is a family-friendly car that’s quick and handles well. It’s spacious and well designed for the functionality required for children, teenagers and adults.

There’s a great feel to this car. From the 8.0-inch infotainment display with Apple CarPlay to ambient lighting and a reversing camera and rear parking sensors to make your life that little bit easier.

The warranty is excellent and its safety rating is well deserved with seven airbags, adaptive cruise control, front assist and emergency brake.  

Hyundai iMax Elite

For larger families – or if you seem to constantly transport half the sports team around, the Hyundai iMax Elite is ideal. Yes, it’s pretty sizeable (it’s an impressive eight seater) but you won’t have any issues getting everything in, and it doesn’t feel bulky to drive.

Thorax airbags and multimedia touch screens are offered as standard. It’s generally not a whole lot more expensive than the smaller vehicles in this class. Petrol and diesel versions are both available and the hard-wearing interiors could be perfect for families with kids or pets.

Kia Stonic

At the other end of the scale, you may want something to zip around town in. For city families, the Kia Stonic is a great small SUV that is due to launch in late 2020. It’s a compact SUV that is sporty and fun – yet offers practicality for families looking for something to use day today.

Safety is a real strength here with autonomous emergency braking, blind-spot warning and lane-keeping assist as standard. I
