Now that the kids are back to school and the school run is back to being an everyday occurrence now may be the time to car shop for a car that is not only practical but has curb appeal. 

Volkswagon Tiguan

The Tiguan is a worldwide favourite and is a sensible, comfortable choice when it comes to ferrying kids, with space for three in the back and one at the front. Not only that the advert for the car features a dad dropping his daughter off at school, so it had to be on the list!

Volvo XC90

If you are looking for a car that offers the most space then the XC90 is the car for you. If you’re after a luxurious seven-seater SUV that’s stylish inside and out, packed with safety technology and very practical then it’s well worth checking out.

Peugeot 2008

A great small SUV is practical, good-looking and efficient. There's plenty of space inside and it's offered with petrol, diesel and all-electric power - naturally, the e-2008 with its range of up to 206 miles is the most planet-friendly version.

MINI Countryman

Quirky and fun to drive the MINI Countryman hybrid is a relatively compact car with four-wheel drive and bags of character, but there's also a decent amount of space inside. It has a pure electric range of up to 29 miles, so enough for most school runs.

Audi RS Avant Quattro

Packed with space and hi-tech panache this car is a great family car that both mum and dad will appreciate driving the kids to school in. The roar of the 4.0 litre turbocharged engine adds some serious attitude.
