Family Cars

Used Family Cars AA Cars works closely with thousands of UK used car dealers to bring you one of the largest selections of Family Cars on the market. All used Family Cars on the AA Cars website come with free 12 months breakdown cover and a free car history check.

A family car offers plenty of space, is usually very good economy and has plenty of room for luggage, ideal for a weekend trip to the seaside or the school run.

Why buy a family car?

Used Family Cars

They may not be the fastest or most exciting cars on the road, but this is the most competitive car sector with a huge range of family friendly models available. They are great for everything from the school run, the regular commute to work, or just packing up for a few days away. The term 'family car' once meant cars that were very much 'middle of the road' or even boring. They were cheaply priced, filled a necessary role and classed as not very exciting, however, all that has changed. Today's family cars are packed with useful features and are far from being boring. They are not just practical but economical, reliable, comfortable, good to drive and, above all, solidly built and safe. AA Cars’ list of used family cars is pretty long, illustrating that this is one of the biggest, well catered for motoring markets. You can explore these cars by clicking the model range or just look for 'family cars'. If you want space and practicality, take a look at MPVs, Estate Cars and 4x4s as well.

Which family car should I buy?

Choosing the best used family car can be challenging with such a wide variety available. AA Cars makes this a much more straightforward process, for example, you can search by price, if you know what you can afford, or by model, fuel type, or transmission type etc. For most used family car models there are user reviews which will give you information about what other people think of the cars with feedback on the benefits and drawbacks of particular models, all of which will be important to you when making your selection. There are some family cars that are rightly the most popular and you might wish to narrow your search of these in order of popularity on AA Cars.

What should I look for when buying family cars?

Think about your family, what do you want to do with your car? Are you going to take a lot of long journeys? If so then a diesel may be the best option. If the 'school run' is the family car's main function then petrol or a hybrid model might be a better choice. The availability of space in the car is bound to be a key question. You may need to ensure that three youngsters can be comfortably and safely seated on the back seat, as well as having room for all their school kit. It might be that you will have a child seat fitted in the car too; they can take up quite a lot of room so this will also need to be factored into your thinking. Many used family cars come in estate version giving you extra carrying capacity; by exploring 'estate' in the search box you will find plenty to choose from.
