Published 13th December 2023Read Time 4 min

What are the best Family cars on sale in Ireland today?

It’s the time of year when a lot of people are thinking about getting a new car…either brand new or something pre-loved like an AA Approved Used Car. Lucky for you, the AA Ireland Car Awards bring together the best motoring journalists in the country to be jury and help you decide! We’ve picked out 3 of the best from the jurors picks at the 2023 AA Ireland Car Awards.

Hyundai IONIQ 6

The jury gave the Hyundai IONIQ 6 the Award for Best Overall Winner at the 2023 Awards. It’s got loads of space in the cabin and you’ll easily get 3 big teenagers in the back thanks to the flat floor. 

Although the boot opening is a little small for getting big buggies into, there’s still 401 litres of space in there and you’ll pack away the weekly shop and school bags no problem. If you do need a little more space, then there’s 45 litres in the front, the roof is rated for 80kgs and you can tow up to 1,500kgs braked!

Starting at less than €46,000 it’s pretty good value for a car with so much range, great charging and all the tech to impress the kids. You can find out more about the IONIQ 6 here.

As an added bonus, you get 5 years free AA Roadside Assist when you buy a new Hyundai!

Skoda Enyaq 

The Skoda Enyaq won Best Family EV at the 2023 AA Ireland Car Awards. The jury favoured its practicality and good range in a hotly contested category. There are also a few different battery, motor and spec configurations to give people plenty of choice.

For a young family, there’s bundles of room! You get a whopping 585 litres of space. The boot has a really wide opening, so it’s easy to get buggies in and out. With a higher roof and a flat floor throughout, there is plenty of space inside for 5 adults. You also get loads of storage in door bins, the central console and so on.  If you want to know more about the Enyaq, you can read our review here

Ford Focus

The Ford Focus is the smallest car on this list…but it’s still a practical family car that gives a lot for its modest price tag. The Focus won Best Family Hatchback at the 2023 AA Ireland Car Awards. The jurors praised its styling, practicality and high spec as standard.

The hatchback boot opening makes it practical to get things like buggies in and out. 375 litres of space is plenty to get a few kids bags and shopping in. Big windows make it feel spacious and you’ll easily get 4 adults in there. Although there are bigger options out there, the Focus just hits the mark as a blend of value for money and practicality.
