With car leasing in the UK becoming more and more popular, now is a great time to think about getting rid of your old car, and driving away in a better family-friendly one. When looking for a car that will benefit the whole family, you’ll want one that is spacious and has some great safety features, yet manages to still keep its style. With that in mind, we’ve had a look at some of the best car lease deals on offer, so there’s sure to be a car that matches you!
If you’re looking for great safety above anything else, then the V40 won’t disappoint. It was even awarded the maximum 5-star crash test rating from Euro NCAP (New Car Assessment Programme). As well as the usual safety kit you’d expect, such as several airbags and electronic aid systems, the V40 also has an engine immobiliser, alarm, and a City Safety system which will apply the brakes for you automatically if it senses an imminent collision with the car in front. Another ingenious feature of the V40 is the airbag which will deploy from the bonnet. This airbag will cover the entire windscreen in the event of a collision with a pedestrian. Overall the V40 is an impressively safe car!
Citroen C4 Picasso MPV
Space is an important factor when choosing your car, that way you’ve got enough room for extra passengers and any holiday luggage. This is why the C4 Picasso is a fantastic choice. Not only is the interior sleek and modern, but there is enough space to easily fit 5 people, with a huge boot to match. When it comes to the rear seats, they can be slid backwards, and even reclined or folded separately. Another added bonus is that all these seats come with Isofix child-seat mountings; an incredibly useful feature which makes the C4 Picasso even more practical. Overall it’s a very well thought out family car, which is both cheap to run and highly practical.
The Octavia is a fantastic all-round car which offers an abundance of space and safety. It even comes with added bonuses of being well equipped, cheap to buy and run, and a stylish interior. The cabin is incredibly spacious, and even tall adults will be able to get comfortable without fighting for legroom. On top of this, the boot is huge so you won’t be lacking in space. There is a high level of safety in the Octavia, and there are seven standard airbags, with rear and side ones available as extras. As well as a 5-star crash test rating, there is also stability control, electronic brakeforce distribution, engine immobiliser and an alarm. As you can see, the Octavia is a fantastic choice and was voted overall winner of the ‘Best Family Car 2015’ They praised the Octavia saying is it “one of the most practical cars in the class, with loads of rear space, enormous boot and really impressive interior quality for the price.”
Good luck choosing your next family car. Have you leased before?
