Experts give the lowdown on the dad cars with the greatest school gate cred
Leading vehicle data and valuation specialist HPI has revealed the top five list of cars guaranteed to boost the ‘school gate cred’ of UK dads following a poll amongst its team of editors and experts.

The poll comes ahead of Father’s Day (Sunday 16 June).

Fernando Garcia, consumer director at hpi, said: “With Father’s Day this weekend we thought it would be fun to look at some of the makes and models of cars that can give dads the ultimate feeling of school gate cred.

“Our team of experts considered everything from top of the range supercars to more practical vehicles but ultimately decided to keep it more grounded by settling for more realistic vehicles that would really appeal to dads.”

The Top 5 list of cars offering the greatest school gate cred is as follows:

1) Jaguar E-Pace

2) Volvo XC40

3) Tesla Model X

4) Audi e-tron

5) Audi TT

Added Fernando Garcia: “The Jaguar E-Pace just edged it in our poll ahead of the Volvo XC40. With its iconic Jaguar heritage it’s a compact SUV that combines the design and performance of a Jaguar sports car with a spacious, practical all-wheel drive vehicle. It’s also perfect for the age range of a dad on the school run.”
