Family car

REEVOOA brilliant family car needs to be a fabulous all-round performer.

It needs to be practical, with space for all of the family, plus trips to the supermarket, the rubbish tip or luggage for weekends away.

Family cars should also be good to drive, comfortable and well equipped, with air-con.

Ownership costs need to be sensible, too, with a low CO2 output to minimise company car tax for business users, and high mpg for private buyers.
