If you’re used to driving a hatchback or an estate car, you may think of an SUV as being a bulky and not particularly aesthetically pleasing vehicle, however times have changed over the last few years and you may be surprised to see how sleek and stylish SUV’s look now.

When you are looking for a family car, it’s worth considering an SUV as they have a range of benefits and it means you are guaranteed additional space without compromising on style.

There are different sizes of SUV’s on the market, from small compact SUV’s, right through to seven-seater models, so there’s something to suit all requirements.

Most brands now have an SUV included in their range and the market share of SUV’s in 2020 was around 16.5%.

The 3008 is the latest SUV release from Peugeot, bringing together the latest technology into a stylish design.

The driver assist features that come as standard with the New Peugeot 3008 include Adaptive Cruise Control, 360° parking camera and a night vision infrared camera.

What SUV’s are on the market for large families

If you require a much larger family car, the Hyundai Santa Fe offers room for up to seven adults, ensuring there is room for everyone, without compromising on passenger space and comfort.

For a seven seater SUV, the Santa Fe is incredibly sharp, with a sleek design and plenty of features that are usually associated with high end brands.

With a boot capacity of up to 547 litres, the Santa Fe is a fantastic option for staycations and adventures that could take you a long way from home. If you require more boot space, the rear two seats can be folded down, creating 1,652 litres of space, so you will never be short of having somewhere to place a pushchair, your weekly shopping or bulky luggage items.

Similar to the Hyundai Santa Fe, the SEAT Tarraco also has seven seats to accommodate up to six passengers comfortably. The rear two seats can be folded down when not in use to create additional space in the boot.
