Skoda's steady improvement in quality - and exceptional value - means the Superb Estate is the Parkers Best Large Family Car 2020. Subtle restyling keeps the Superb fresh without changing those core family-friendly features of a massive load area and impressive rear legroom, low running costs and a full suite of safety tech. Already available in petrol, diesel, 4x4 and high performance versions, the introduction of hybrid technology adds to the breadth of abilities offered by the Superb - completing a package that truly is the best large family car you can buy this year.

Runners up

BMW 5 Series Touring family car


The Large Family Car award winner from 2018 comes back to defend its title on the back of its consistent excellence and good old fashioned driver appeal – yes, it's as impressive as ever. The BMW 5 Series Touring is packed with all the same tech as its saloon sibling, steers just as sharply and rides in a similarly impressive fashion. But it's so practical that you'd be hard-pushed to choose the traditional four-door over the Touring – you get 570 litres of bootspace with the rear seats in place, while its loadbay is wide and low. Still want that SUV?.

Volvo XC90 family car


To say that the 2020 facelift of the Volvo XC90 is subtle is an overstatement. At first sight, it looks almost unchanged – but that's not a bad thing, given that it's such a handsome devil. There's a new mild-hybrid version known as the B5, while the XC90's strengths remain as they were – so you get a comfortable ride, fantastic front seats and a simple-to-use infotainment system. Given its imperious stance and lofty price tag, the XC90 has an unpretentious image and sharp style that's unmatched by any of its rivals. In short, it's a full-fat SUV that you'll love, not hate.
