Needs and wants

As a parent, safety will probably remain high on the priority list, and you’ll also need to think about accommodating gangly teenagers with added head space and leg room. It’s likely you’ll be the designated taxi driver for picking up children and their friends from parties, so flexible seating is a must. You may also need a car to transport equipment for hobbies and sports – as well as boot space for family activities, camping trips or holidays abroad.


Suggested car: Land Rover Discovery Sport

With flexible 5+2 seating, generous leg room and adaptable loading space, the Discovery Sport is perfect for accommodating your children and their friends, packing suitcases, or loading other equipment. If you’re looking to take the family on an adventure, this powerful car is built to drive effortlessly both on and off road, with towing options also available.  It’s very safe too, with a 5* Euro NCAP rating^.

The Discovery Sport is capable of towing up to 2,200kg; the same weight as a small African elephant.

Hyundai Santa Fe. With 5-7 seats, safety features plus 7 airbags and touch screen sat nav, you can taxi the teens in safety and style.


Quick tip

If you’re picking up your children late at night, be extra cautious when driving in the dark. Look out for drunk drivers; sleep deprived motorists, and animals on the road. It’s also sensible to try to stick to well-lit areas.
