Family Cars in the Volkswagen Range

Families come in all shapes and sizes. Whether you’re running the kids to and from school or doing the weekly shopping; you need a car that’s able to handle anything life throws at it.

With that in mind, we’ve gone through the trouble of collating a list of the best practical Volkswagen family cars. Whether it’s spacious comfort or sporty fun you’re looking for, there’s sure to be a family car to suit you - just take a look at the options below!

The Compact Volkswagen Golf

If you’re looking for a car that’s small but mighty then the Volkswagen Golf is perfect for you. Winner of the Auto Express Compact Family Car 2017 Award, the latest MK7.5 Golf comes with upgraded engines, an improved infotainment system and revised trim levels – not forgetting to mention the newly added safety kit too!

As has been the case for two decades now the Golf sets the benchmark for hatchbacks when it comes to comfort, refinement and upmarket appeal. The practicality of the Golf is also highly appealing, with more than enough space for most families and several finishing touches that help to make life that little bit easier.

For Those Who Still Want Excitement in Their Lives: The Golf R Estate and Golf GTD Estate

Volkswagen Golf R Estate

If you’re after something that’s sporty as well as practical then there are two exciting estate cars in the Volkswagen range that offer both practicality and exhilaration.

The Golf R estate offers power and thrills with a four-wheel-drive that gives you amazing handling to go alongside the ferocious 0-62 time of 5.1 seconds – once you have safely escorted the children to their destination, then, you can of course test this out.

The Golf GTD estate is almost as good as the R even if it is admittedly less crazy – offering less performance but exceptional economy. At an impressive 64.2mpg the GTD lets you indulge in the performance whilst not having to spend so much time refilling your fuel tank at the petrol station.

Inside, both cars offer the luxury and space you’d expect of a family car and both also come equipped with the latest technologies. So there you have it, two family cars that offer luxury and space as well as enough performance to blow away other parents at the traffic lights.

The Stylish T-Roc Crossover: Perfect for Families That Want the Best of Both Worlds

Volkswagen T-Roc

The new Golf-sized SUV is set to be a big hit with its long awaited release date approaching – orders are open now, so if you just can’t wait then register your interest for all of the latest announcements here.

Aimed at the trendier parents out there, the T-Roc offers style and practicality, which is unusual as one is usually sacrificed for the other. The design is adventurous with a coupe-style roofline and a rakish rear-end. An imperious grill dominates the front-end while aggressive bumpers and large alloy wheels add to the stylish look.

In the boot there’s plenty of room for maneuver with 445 litres expanding to 1,290 litres with the rear seats down – to weigh that up, the Audi Q2 boasts 405 litres with the seats up and 1,050 litres when they’re down.

The spacious Tiguan Allspace now with more seats than ever!

For those with the largest of families, the Tiguan Allspace is for you. Like a Golf on steroids the Tiguan Allspace offers families more space and flexibility while retaining a classy image and refined driving manners on the road. Buyers that are regularly in need of more than five seats can make use of an excessive 7 seats in the Allspace - which can also be folded away when not needed. The boot holds around 700 litres which is nearly twice as much as the T-Roc mentioned previously and when the second row seating is folded down you are opened up to an enormous 1,920 litres of room!
