At Motor Range, we’re all about family-friendly motoring - and that includes the furry members of the family too! So we know how important it is to find a car that will cater to all of your pet’s needs.

We’ve compiled a list of some of the best cars out there for pet owners, which will provide great safety, security, and plenty of space. Whether it’s a trip to the vets, a family staycation, or a drive to the park, these pet-friendly motors will make adventures with man’s best friend by your side easier and even more enjoyable. 


Nissan X-Trail 


As a spacious and practical SUV, the Nissan X-Trail is a great choice for pet owners. Road trips with your furry friend will be a breeze, as the X-Trail boasts 565-litres of boot space, and 60/40 split seats which can be folded down to offer even more versatility. 

To make sure your pampered pooch travels in comfort, you have the option to add Nissan’s Paw Pack. This converts the boot space into a haven for your pet, with a super soft dog bed, trunk liner, seat back tidy, and a foldaway dog ramp and bag for storage to make it easier for smaller dogs to climb aboard.

Ford S-Max


As one of the best 7-seat family MPVs on the market, you and your pet will be spoiled for space in the Ford S-Max. It’s a no-fuss family car that promises plenty of practicality, so if that’s at the top of your list of priorities, then the S-Max is well worth considering. 

With the seats down, you’ll get over 2,000-litres of boot space, which is more than enough to keep your canine companion’s tail wagging. The Ford S-Max also offers a very decent MPG of around 43.5 - depending on which engine option you go for - which means you’ll have more spending money for dog treats!

Hyundai Tucson


The Hyundai Tucson is a brilliant small SUV for ferrying around your furry friends. It offers around 513-litres of boot space, which increases to 1,503-litres when the seats are down, so it can accommodate a large dog breed. 

Not only will your pet be cruising in comfort, but you will too, as the Hyundai Tucson offers a high-quality interior with heated front seats on certain trims, as well as a sat nav and lane assist. Road trips in the Tucson are sure to be enjoyable for the whole family.

Vauxhall Astra Estate


The Astra Estate is not to be underestimated; this brilliant estate shows that you don’t need an SUV or an MPV to get enough practicality for family life. With a 540-litre boot, the Astra Estate provides enough room for a medium-sized pooch to travel in comfort, while a low load lip means that even little legs will be able to leap in and out with ease.

As standard, the Vauxhall Astra Estate offers a whole host of safety kit, including a tyre pressure monitor, hill start assist, and ISOFIX, leaving you to take to the road with confidence and enjoy a relaxing drive.

The 491-litre boot expands to 1,480-litres when the seats are down, and a low load lip makes it convenient for your pet to hop in and out. 

What’s more, the Kia Sportage’s five-star NCAP safety rating will give you peace of mind on every journey.
