25 awesome $30k Family Car Mega Test

fires Today Have More Choice Than Ever Before When Looking For Their Next Family Car And The Competition Is Cutthroat Even At The Affordable End Of The Market Today We'll Be Testing Eight Very Different Options For New Car Buyers That Come In At 30 Grand Or Thereabout And To Figure Out Which One Is Best For You We'll Be Putting Them Through A Series Of Tests From Space To Value To Driver And Passenger Comfort And The One That Comes Last In Each Test Will Be Eliminated Until We Left Without Top Three Choices In Our First Ever 30k Family Car Shootout What's On Offer For A Family Car For 30 Grand Plenty The Models We Have Here Are All As Close To Or Not Too Far Over That $30,000 Price Point. So, There's A Range Of Different Price Spec And Equipment Levels On Offer That Should Keep Things Interesting Give A Boat Representing The Traditional Hatchback Part Of The Market Is The Subaru.

Impreza While We've Also Got A Couple Of Good Old Family Sedans The Hyundai Sonata And Toyota Camry The Latter Of Which Is The Only Hybrid Car Here Next Is A Family Wagon The Skoda Octavia And An MPV Of Sorts The Kia Rondo And Because Suvs Are All The Rage Right Now We've Got A Couple Of Those To Our Small SUV Benchmark The Toyota CHR And The Entry-level Mid-sized Mazda Cx-5 Oh And Just For Fun We've Also Got A Ute The Great Wall Speed The Ute Is A Great Segue To Our First Test Space And Of Course The Great Wall Has Plenty Of That To Offer Round One Sees Each Of Our Family-friendly Options Being Put To Task With A Boot Tetris Challenge The More Boxes We Can Fit In The Better The Usable Space We're Not Folding Seats Down Here Because Your Kids Will Need A Spot To Come On Holidays With You Right Although The Speed Has A Ton Of Payload Capacity And A Massive Tray This Is A Family Car Test And It Only Scored A Two-star And Capped Crash-test Ratings. So, It's Out What Oh Well With The First Car Eliminated It's On With Our Space Test The Amount Of Space On Offer Varies Greatly Between The Seven Remaining Option From The Subarus Boot Which Is Just 340 Liters Through To The Cabinets Back Side Of The Octavia Wagon With 588 Liters Of Room Or An Extra 124 Two-liter Bottles Of Milk, If You'd Ever Need That, But Space Is About More Than Just Cargo Area And Every One Of These Options Has Good Backseat Space In Their Respective Segments They Wouldn't Be Here Otherwise The Camry And Sonata Are On Another Level For Rear Seat Legroom, But The CHR. Impreza And Cx-5 Managed To Hold Their Own Seeing A Small SUV With This Roofline It's No Surprise, But There's Not A Lot Of Space In The Boot Of The Toyota CHR It's A Great Option For City Dwellers Though And It's Packed With Heaps Of Equipment Including Safety Check Even In His Face Model, But A Family Car Not.

So, Much The Rear Door Handles Are Too High For Some Kids To Be Able To Reach, But, If They Can They'll Have To Watch They Don't Get Their Fingers Caught And While The Space In Here Is Pretty Good Even For An Adult The Vision Is Poor. I Mean. I Can Barely See Out Of This Back Window And, If You've Got Kids In Tow That Could Spell Roadtrip Disaster It's Out Test To Seize Our Six Remaining Cars Put Through The Ringer For Value And We Can Expect Some Cars To Do Quite A Bit Better Than Others Here For Instance The Kia Rondo Has A Massive Boot And A Big Backseat And It's A Great Option For No-frills Buyers, But You Miss Out On Pretty Much Everything You Get A Tiny Touchscreen Media System A Rear View Camera And Rear Senses With Pricing From Twenty Six Nine Ninety It Is Cheap And You Can Get A Seven Seat Variant, But That Does Push It Over That 30k Price Point Being A Kia It's Got A Long Ownership Plan Which Offers Peace Of Mind, But You Really Do Need To Consider Just How Much Kit You Can Get For Your Money Elsewhere It's Out Because There's.

So, Much Choice In The Market Buyers Are Moving Away From Traditional Mid-sized Sedans And When You Think About What You Can Get In Other Body Styles There's A Fairly Good Reason For That. So, What Are You Saying About These Two Then Both Have Massive Back Seats Both Easily Passed Our Space Test Even The Camry Hybrid With This Bruton Mounted Battery Pack These Are The Archetypal Family Cars And Both Are Worth A Look Even, If You Just Need To Give Them A To Being Comfort, If Not Style Yeah, But When You Consider What Tech You Miss Out On They Are Relatively Expensive And, If You Can Sacrifice Just A Bit Of Backseat Run Or Maybe Settle For A Different Body Style You're Going To Get Better Value Elsewhere Like A Lot Better The Camry Hybrid Has A Tried And Tested Drivetrain That's Great For Saving Fuel It's The Choice Of Taxi Drivers All Over The Country After All, But It In The Sonata Both Tip-over That Psychological Barrier Of $30,000, But Without Enough Gear To Justify It In Today's Landscape Neither Of Them Has The Latest Smartphone Connectivity Of Apple Carplay Or Android Auto Nor The Latest Safety Tech That We've Come To Expect At Pretty Much All Price Points There Is No Autonomous Emergency Braking In Either Of These And We All Know How Handy That Technology Can Be Being A Parent Can Get A Little Distracting At Times Both Of Rear View Cameras And The Sonata Has Weird Parking Sensors Both Also Have A Five-star Crash Test Score Yeah, But The Games Moved On They're Out The Skoda Octavia Wagon We Have Here Is The 110 TSI Automatic Which Is Listed At 27 690 Plus On Roads Meaning It's Not The Entry Point To That Range, But Nor Is It The Range Topper, But It's The Most Affordable Of Our Three Remaining Options And, If The Wagon Doesn't Do It For You There's A Lift Back Hatch Option As Well, If The Wagon Body Style We'd Choose, If We Were After The Ultimate In Family Practicality Plus It Looks Better As Well And Setting The Octavia Apart From Its Two Rivals In Its Final Three Is A Turbocharged Engine Which Offers Plenty Of Punch And Peeps Of Grunt When You Need It Sure The Dual Clutch Automatic Can Take Some Getting Used To And It Can Be A Little Bit Noisy At Higher Speeds, But We Think It Justifies Its Position Here Purely Because Of The Equipment You Get Their Standard Adaptive Cruise Control And Smartphone Mirroring And An Array Of Extra Safety Equipment To Keep Your Kids Safe On The Open Road We Like It A Lot Next Up Is The Subaru. Impreza Hash You Can Get It As A Sedan, If You Prefer And In This Flagship 2.0 Is Specification It Comes In At 29 190 The Good News Is That Pricing To This Model Starts Way Down At Twenty-two Thousand Four Hundred The.

Impreza Has Won Us Over Here At Car Advice Because It Offers. So, Much Safety Kit And Technology At Such A Low Price This Thing Has Pretty Much Everything In It Apart From Parking Sensors And There's A Lot Of Space On Offer Which Is Great For The Hatchback Class It Has All-wheel Drive Unlike The Other Finalists So, If You Plan To Add To The Snow In Winter That Could Be A Bit Of A Wind, But The Drivetrain Might Not Be Too All Pace The - Litter Box. I Can Feel A Little Bit Gutless And While The CVT Is Pretty Good For The Class It Can Make For A Noisy Driving Experience Especially, If The Car Is Full And Our Third Finalist The Mazda Cx-5 Max Just Breaks The $30,000 Barrier At Thirty Thousand Six Ninety Four The Automatic, If You Can Live With A Manual There's A Max Manual For Two Thousand Dollars Less This Base Model Cx-5 Certainly Feels A Few Specs Up When You Slide Into The Driver's Seat, But Finishes Are All Lovely The Materials Look More Expensive Than They Are And The Dash Top Media Screen Is Smart As Well What It All Adds Up To Is High Perceived Value And High Perceived Quality It Has That Typical Manta Fun-to-drive Feel To It With Good Steering And Suspension That's Great In Corners, But Maybe Just A Little Bit Firm Over, But It Isn't The Liveliest Powertrain Particularly, If You Do A Lot Of Open Road Driving, But Around Town It's Turkey And Offers Decent Response For Urban Family It Could Be The Perfect Option Let's Go To Octavia Could Be Your Best Bet, If You've Got Young Children With Its Big Boot Offering Plenty Of Cargo Capacity Where The Subaru.

Impreza Well It's Probably Best Considered As A Good Second Car And The Cx-5 Strikes A Balance Between The Two Really Ultimately Though There Is No Real Wrong Choice Just At Which Of These $30,000 Family Cars Is Right Viju Will Depend On Your Specific Circumstances. I Think We've Proven Though That We Are Well The Choice Yeah Let Us Know Which One You Would Pick In The Comments Section Below You.
