Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Mo­tor­ing -

Fam­ily cars are mea­sured by their own unique set of rules and re­quire­ments, and not all are cre­ated equal. The good news for those shop­ping for a new way to move their clan is whichcar.com.au has done the hard work for you. Be­low are three fam­ily cars that cover most peo­ple’s needs. For more com­pre­hen­sive eval­u­a­tions, check out their range re­views.

KIA CAR­NI­VAL

Should you have a larger than av­er­age fam­ily, this peo­ple mover is one of the most com­pe­tent when it comes to haul­ing up to eight peo­ple in com­fort. Priced be­tween $42,490 and $62,790, this car has a jam-packed equip­ment list, and a lower load­ing height than any SUV, which makes boot ac­cess much eas­ier to man­age.

AUDI Q7

If you’ve got the means for an up­mar­ket Euro­pean ride, the Audi Q7 is the pick for fam­i­ly­haul­ing du­ties. It’s more re­fined than a BMW X5 and more up-to-date than the Mercedes-benz Gls-class. The Q7 starts from $96,855, up to a top-of-the-line SQ7 at $153,327. The lat­ter is a more per­for­mance-focused of­fer­ing, cater­ing to the fam­ily that likes to han­dle the school run with equal amounts style and speed.

MAZDA CX-5

This best-seller in the mid-size SUV class is thought­ful and well-equipped in terms of safety and prac­ti­cal­ity. It’s the most af­ford­able on this list with an en­try price of $28,690. A healthy range of vari­ants stretches up to a pre­mium $51,497 flag­ship.
