Small Family Cars
The key things to look for when browsing small family cars, apart from running costs and reliability, are boot space and rear-seat access. If you are going to need to do seat belts on baby seats up, you will need to look at small family cars with five doors, for example.
Hatchbacks or estates are also often better for loading pushchairs and so forth, but only if there is a low loading lip once the hatch is opened. Check out our stats section for boot capacity and whether seats fold down on the small family cars listed below. Rummage through the many pictures attached to each review to see what the boot access is like.
