A family has perhaps the largest effect on the car you choose and the way you drive - a good family car must be capable of carrying at least three people, plus luggage, on journeys that might be anything from a supermarket run to a driving holiday. You'll need to consider the size of the boot (especially for prams) and ensure that the back seats are accessible so that you can reach your child easily. Young children will need safety seats and your new family car will have to fit them correctly - on new cars, this is no problem, but you'll need to check used cars for compliance.
Below are details on our family car range, we look at cars of several sizes, including our Citroën MPVs which make excellent large family cars - if you have more than three children or need to carry a large amount of luggage, check out our 7 seater section as well!
Citroën family cars ensure everyone enjoys equal comfort. This is because each individual seat provides the same width and the same generous leg room.
Available on Berlingo, for maximum practicality, each of the 3 rear seats can be easily folded into the floor and they’re all fitted with i-size ISOFIX points.
Citroën family cars offer exceptional boot volume so you can take everything you need on every adventure.
