Buying a car that will transport and protect your family is one of life’s most important decisions. That's why for we've gathered together our favourite family SUVs that cater for the growing number of people looking for a mix of space, practicality and sensible running costs, but also a raised ride height and off-road looks.

Practicality is paramount, but that shouldn’t come at the expense of a decent drive. We’re looking for tidy handling, smooth engines and a ride that is comfy enough to ensure the kids aren’t left feeling queasy.

And along with good space inside, we’d like to see a high-quality interior and an infotainment system that’s easy to use and packed with the latest features.

Click through to see which SUVs are most suited to family life, and the ones to avoid.
