Large Family Car of the Year 2021: SEAT Tarraco

Best Large Family Car Award in partnership with… Absolute Radio


When your family grows, your lifestyle changes – whether you’re thinking of the number of seats, or room in the boot. So, if you’re thinking of a large saloon, hatchback, estate or SUV, there’s an almost unlimited number of options. Our winner, the SEAT Tarraco, manages to combine the needs of a large family and the keen driver perfectly, and do so at an impressively low price.

Fresh from its trim and spec updates for 2020, the SEAT Tarraco has emerged as the large SUV to buy if you're looking for an unbeatable combination of good value, smart styling and the option of seven seats. And this makes it the winner of our Best Large Family Car award. We love the way SEAT has tuned the Tarraco's steering and suspension to make this large SUV handle and drive like a smaller, sportier car. It's also stylish inside and out. Where the Tarraco really excels, however, is with its low prices and excellent finance, which put this substantial car within the reach of so many families.

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate has received a raft of updates for 2021, which see this smooth, sophisticated and highly comfortable large family car head to the top of the premium pile. It's packed with the latest tech and is one of the safest cars you can buy. With a luggage compartment that famously can swallow a Euro pallet whole, it's also the consummate load carrier. To sweeten the pill, Mercedes-Benz E-Class models are competitive on monthly finance, too. Still want that SUV?

We love the big Skoda Superb Estate here at Parkers. It's a super-smart family car that is brimming with sheer all-round competence. It's been around for a while now, but last year's facelift and the addition of a new plug-in hybrid (PHEV) version adds to its all-round appeal. Other plus points are its massive loadbay and huge amounts of rear legroom, while the wide range of petrol and diesel engines sweeten the pill even further. Value in terms of cash price is great, too.
