Top 5 cars that give ‘school gate credibility’


MOTORING EXPERTS have revealed a list of the top five cars guaranteed to boost the ‘school gate credibility’ of UK dads following a poll amongst its team of motoring editors.

It’s not just the music being played on the CD as you automatically reverse into a space at the school gates that, according to the advert, gets you noticed.

James Dower, senior Black Book editor at hpi, said: “We thought it would be fun to look at some of the makes and models of cars that can give the ultimate feeling of school gate cred. Our team of editors considered everything from top of the range supercars to one-off fantasy cars as seen in the movies such as the classic DeLorean from Back to the Future or Vin Diesel’s 1968 Dodge Charger featured in the latest Fast and the Furious movie. They eventually decided to keep it real 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 F-Pace

2) Range Rover Evoque

3) VW Tiguan

4) Audi TT

5) BMW X1

Added James: “The Jaguar F-Pace just edged it in our poll ahead of the Evoque and the Tiguan. With its iconic Jaguar heritage in a popular SUV bodystyle, the F-Pace is sporty and compact yet relatively affordable. It’s also perfect for the age range of a dad doing the school run.”
