Paramedics and firefighters raced to the scene but the family could not be saved.
They were pronounced dead at the scene on the A82 by Hillfarm, Torlundy, Scottish Highlands, around 5.30pm on Thursday.
The road was closed for nearly 12 hours.
The driver of the Ford Fiesta, a 56-year-old woman, was taken to Bedford Hospital, Fort William with what was described as serious but non-life threatening injuries.
Superintendent Simon Bradshaw, said: ‘I can sadly confirm that four people have died – a female driver, 26, a male front seat passenger, 25, and two children – both girls aged three and one.
‘All four were travelling in a green Mini Cooper.
‘Further details will be confirmed in due course but I can confirm that they were a family.
‘Specialist officers have been deployed to provide support to their relatives at this extremely difficult time.’
He added: ‘Every loss of life on our roads is a tragedy but the impact on families, friends and entire communities after an incident like this cannot be underestimated.
‘Our thoughts are with everyone who has been involved or affected.
‘An investigation is ongoing to establish the full circumstances leading to this tragedy and it would be wrong for me to speculate on the cause at this time.’
