Honest John Awards 2018: Large family car category

A large family car should be good to drive and large enough to cope with everything a family of four can throw at it - while also providing upmarket good looks and rock bottom running costs.  

This 2018 shortlist is based on user visits to pages on during the past 12 months - so they're chosen not by us, but rather based on how popular they are with our readers.

Vauxhall Insignia Grand Sport

The new Insignia is very competitively priced. It's comfortable, reasonably well-equipped and offers acres of space in the back for big families.

Ford Mondeo

The Mondeo is a superb all-rounder, with efficient engines and interior refinement making it a genuine - and more spacious - rival to the German saloons. 

Mazda 6

The Mazda 6 has it all: spacious, dynamic, efficient and genuinely surprising refinement. All-in-all it is good enough to give the premium set a real fright. 

Skoda Superb

Arguably the best pound-for-pound car on sale today, the Superb pairs the ride quality of a luxury car with the typical running costs of a family hatchback. The interior is huge too with enough storage to rival the best family estate cars can offer. 

Volkswagen Passat

The eighth-generation Passat is a significant improvement on the model it replaces, with a sharper exterior, impressive all-round refinement, more space and improved economy.
