The VW Touran is roomy, practical, very well built and good to drive. It's a bit more expensive than the Citroën C4 Grand Spacetourer, but worth the extra – especially when you factor in the huge discounts that are available. The 1.5 TSI petrol is our top pick and we'd recommend SE or SE Family trim to keep the price down.get the best price
Gets you 16in alloy wheels, automatic lights and wipers, all-round electric windows and adaptive cruise control. There are also a number of very reasonably priced options, which is why this is our favourite trim.
Engine: 2.0 TDI
This 148bhp 2.0-litre diesel is a good choice if you plan to do load of miles, due to its superior efficiency over the 1.5 TSI petrol. However, it's considerably pricier to buy.
