Australia’s cheapest family cars revealed
We reveal the best-value and most affordable family cars for 2019.
If you’re in the market for a family car in 2019, there’s a good chance you’re not looking to buy a large sedan or station wagon. These staples of family motoring from decades past have dropped in popularity as buyers favour the flexibility of high-riding SUVs and even dual-cab pick-ups.
It is also likely that value for money and affordability are two of the top priorities when purchasing a new family hauler.
RACV’s 2019 Driving Your Dollars survey reveals the true cost of owning and operating some of Australia’s best-selling models. The breakdown of these hidden costs is then calculated as a weekly charge, inclusive of the initial purchase price.
Whether you are after a mid-size SUV for running around the city, a big four-wheel drive ute to go off-roading in, or a more traditional sedan or wagon, RoyalAuto has sifted through the results to find some of Australia’s best-value family cars.
Mazda's popular CX-5 is one of the most affordable cars to run in 2019.
