A couple of years ago, Toyota launched a viral YouTube video called ‘Swagger Wagon’ that showed the hip Sienna family rapping about their trippim’, family-friendly ride. With over 12 million views, the hip-hop video showed that SUV’s are the new cool kids on the block and if you’re in the market for a family car, you should be rollin’ up in one of these ‘swagger wagons’:

Ford Territory

The Ford Territory is a great option if you want to be able to drive your family around in style as well as save on fuel economy. Achieving an impressive 8.2L/100km (RWD models) means that choosing the Territory results in less fuel bills and cheaper road trips for you – it also produces less CO2 emissions than equivalent petrol alternatives. Other reasons to choose the Territory include its quiet engine, seamless gear changes, and its drive and handling precision.

A solid car, Ford recently announced that in 2015, the Territory will be replaced with by the new Ford Edge as Ford’s flagship full-size SUV.

Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate

Last, but certainly not least, is the E-Class Estate. We hope you agree with us that it looks fantastic. Aside from aesthetics, this is a great option to consider if you value stowage space and ease of stowing. Boasting a huge 1950 litres of stowage space (with the rear seats folded away) and its new Hands-Free Access system that offers convenient loading through its foot motion detector below the bumper, the E-Class Estate is ideal for busy families who pack heavily.
