Mother&Baby has once again partnered with Parkers – the definitive resource for car buying advice in the UK – to bring you the awards for the Best Small Family Car and Best Medium Family Car in the prestigious Parkers New Car Awards 2023. The all-electric MG4 EV and the hybrid Honda Civic are the winning motors announced by Parkers.

The MG4 EV takes the top spot in the Best Small Family Car category for its combination of great value pricing, practical interior and excellent electric range. But there’s more to it than that, as it’s also good fun to drive and is packed with all the latest crash avoidance technology to keep you and your family safe. Put them all together and that makes the MG4 EV an excellent choice for a growing family.

Parkers editor Keith Adams said: ‘as well as winning the M&B award, it’s also the overall Parkers New Car of The Year 2024. That’s because it’s not only great value, but also a very impressive piece of kit. Even if it were a similar price to its closest rivals, it would be a winner – but at thousands less it’s an irresistible choice for anyone looking for an all-electric family car’.

The Honda Civic e wins out in the Best Medium Family Car category for its excellent fuel economy, impressive safety features and excellent practicality. It was the overall Parkers New Car of The Year in 2023, and remains highly competitive.

Keith Adams added: ‘It's a reflection of just how effective the Japanese firm's excellent hybrid system is, proving you don't need to plug in to get great efficiency and low running costs. In short, the Honda Civic is an outstanding winner for the M&B Best Medium Family Car award – and we think you’ll agree, too.'

The winning cars have been tested rigorously by the team, which judged the winning cars on a combination of value, quality, reliability, cost-per-month on finance deals and fitness for purpose.

Keith Adams added: "In this year's New Car Awards, we're excited to have integrated electric cars (EVs) into the mainstream, as they’re becoming so popular. We’ve also picked a great selection of EVs, petrol and hybrid winners by taking what we know about what our users are viewing on Parkers,” he added.

Now in its seventh year, the Parkers New Car Awards 2024 reflects the constantly-evolving views of Britain's car-buying public, with winners decided by a combination of the site's expert reviewers' verdicts in thousands of miles of road testing and the purchasing habits of the website's 2.3 million users actively involved in the buying process.
