When it comes to this fast-paced world we live in, it seems like
families are spending more time in their cars than their actual homes
— whether it’s hauling the youngsters to and from school and
extracurricular activities or running multiple errands during the
weekends. Because of this, finding and purchasing a vehicle you can
rely on is crucial.
Perhaps you’re expecting your first child or maybe you have another
little one on the way. Whatever the case may be, you need a car that
can best accommodate your family’s needs. Below we’ve outlined some
key features for you to consider during your car-buying journey:
Safety Having a quality vehicle that can safely transport your
family to and fro is imperative. Many modern cars come with an
assortment of features designed to help drivers and passengers stay
safe on the road. These include lane departure and collision warning
systems, rearview cameras, backup sensors and blind zone alerts. Oh,
and child locks, of course.
Space The more people that are in your family, the more car space
you need. Most minivans and larger SUVs have third rows to
accommodate more passengers, and some even have removable seats to
create more storage space.
Comfort As much time as you and your family spend in the car, you
ought to be nice and comfy, right? Vehicles like the Hyundai Santa
Fe Sport come with a seat-heater option (for all chairs) and seats
that are soil and odor-resistant to conquer spills and stains.
Vehicles like the Buick Enclave can seat up to eight people and also
include a rear-seat entertainment system.
Kid-Friendly If you’re expecting a new bundle of joy, you may want to
look at cars that are designed to accommodate infants and smaller
children. Minivans and SUVs like the Toyota Sienna and the Ford Flex
come with a low-to-the-ground feature, making it easier for children
to get in and out of the car. Other vehicles like the Honda CR-V
were built to make it easier to install car seats and/or booster seats.
