    I think we would need to know what you mean by "best", whether you are at the lugging cots & stuff around stage still for example, and what sort of budget.

    Otherwise I would go for an Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrofoglio. But I don't have £70K, so I won't be getting one

    Well that makes things a bit easier. Which country and what kind of drives will you be doing/what is the terrain/weather?

    Bentley Mulsanne? Comfy, plenty of space in the back, nicely finished. Pretty brisk too.

    No budget, yay

    Possibly a Tesla Model X then? Or a Maserati Levante.

    If you don't need to load prams and cots, there are some nice saloons out there too.

    Škodas are pretty decent... Hatch-saloon or Estate.

    Re: What is the best family car?

    Toyota or Honda are the most reliable (most miles for least cost). More upmarket, maybe Skoda these days. That's where my money would go (but I would never buy new).

    When did Skoda become more upmarket than Toyota or Honda? I'd put them in the VW segment of VAGs Skoda/VW/Audi stack.

    fair point mate. Maybe I'm old fashioned but VW would be more upmarket to me.
