What do you recommend when buying a reliable, family-friendly car?

I am finally about to trade in my Renault Scenic, which for all its manufacturing faults has served my family well. Which car is the most reliable and more family friendly to replace my Scenic - the Skoda Yeti or Jeep Renegade?

Asked on by

The Skoda Yeti is now an old model about to be replaced and, unless in very expensive, full four wheel drive version, the Renegade is not very good. If you want a VAG car, think SEAT Ateca: www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/seat/seat-ateca-20.../ and www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/seat/seat-ateca-10.../ If you want a commodious car, go for the new model Peugeot 3008: www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/peugeot/peugeot-30.../

Far better than the previous model. The Grand model seats seven. Practical and versatile. Excellent crash test rating.
Unique styling. Solid build. Excellent petrol engines including frugal yet peppy 1.2 TSI. Good space in the back. Frugal 1.6 TDI Greenline can return 60mpg+. Much loved model.
Small yet impressively spacious SUV. Good quality interior. Refined and quiet even at speed. Usefully large boot and wide opening rear doors.
Very comfortable and refined with impressive ride quality. Lots of room for those in the back along with a large boot. Good value for money. 1.6 TDI should prove very economical. Five star Euro NCAP rating.
Well-finished, stylish cabin. Well-equipped as standard. Full-colour digital instruments on all models.
