" Looking for a practical, fuel-efficient vehicle to perform school-run duties? We run down the five best for space, economy and style"

BMW i3

If you want to make a statement while you’re saving the world, you could do a lot worse than the BMW i3. This eye-catching electric family car from BMW features rear-hinged rear doors, which swing out to give extra access to the rear seats. There’s enough space to fit two Isofix seats—and in fact the rear of the i3 feels more suited to children than to adults, thanks to the smaller headroom. You get great front-facing visibility, and the smart interior is built from environmentally friendly materials wherever possible. You can lease a BMW i3 in all-electric or range-extender versions.

Seat Leon

Practical interiors, good pricing, great engines—lease a Seat Leon and you’ll find plenty to love. There are three- and five-door options, plus an ST estate. The five-door Leon has enough boot space to cope with the weekly shop, and enough space in the back seats to accommodate two adults or a couple of kids. If you’re looking for a car to fit a buggy in, the ST Estate offers 584 litres of boot space. Performance in the ST version is at its best with the 1.4-litre, 148bhp petrol engine: this engine is also able to shut down half of its cylinders to save fuel at cruising speed.

Audi A3 Sportback

Bigger than it looks on the inside, the Audi A3 Sportback is great leasing option for the family that likes a touch of class with its ride. You’ll get high-grade, premium-feeling interiors on every trim level. What’s more, everything inside the A3 feels tough enough to cope with the rigours of family life. Performance wise, you can choose from a range of petrol and diesel engines. The 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol version is more than adequate for daily duties, whether you’re ferrying the kids to activities or commuting on motorways.

Volkswagen Golf

A perennial family favourite, the Golf continues to impress with both its drive and its build. Good resale values are reflected in excellent VW Golf leasing packages, and fuel economy is strong. Pick the 1.0-litre TSi Bluemotion engine to score the best combination of performance and running costs. As for trim, we recommend SE or SE Navigation. SE gives you a good selection of safety and comfort tech (such as automatic lights and wipers, and front and rear parking sensors). SE Navigation ups the ante even more by offering on-board satnav.

Skoda Octavia

The What Car? website awarded the Skoda Octavia its Family Car of the Year award—making it the obvious choice for our number one pick. Choose a 1.4-litre TSi 150 SE for the best mix of performance and kit. You’ll get lumbar adjustment for both driver and passenger, plus a multi-function steering wheel, rear parking sensors and dual-zone climate control. Handling is just what you want from a family car—predictable and stable, not to mention composed at motorway speeds. All in all, the Skoda Octavia is a perfect leasing choice for families who want an all-round, accomplished car that can handle everything from daily duties to long holiday trips.
