I recently did a write up of the Citroën C3 Aircross. I found it to be a very impressive car, especially considering the price tag. Was it, however, the kind of vehicle that you could have a real family adventure in?

The Citroën C3 Aircross: the best off-roader ever?

In my experience, Citroën makes superb family cars. The C4 Picasso stands out in particular. Having taken a C4 Picasso on a family trip to Scotland a couple of years ago, I was interested to see how the C3 Aircross would compare. I was loaned an Aircross for a few days so I could form my own opinion.

When I’m test driving cars, it’s sometimes very apparent when a manufacture has created something with massive appeal to the family market. Although I can only base this on my own anecdotal evidence, Skoda seems to have achieved this with the Karoq.

Making the school run that bit easier

The school run is one of those aspects of parenting that causes me pain. Actually, that’s a bit harsh, the journey home in the evenings is often great fun with relaxed children who want to chat. The morning drop-off, well, that’s a different story.
