Full house, or even better: full car!
Three criteria for choosing the right family car
Having children changes your life a great deal, including your transport needs. Soon you wonder whether to get a suitable family car. Big or small, people carrier or estate car – every family has different needs, so finding the best car to suit yours is not always simple. It needs to be practical, nice to drive, look sporty and, of course, fitted with a cool infotainment system. In other words, your family car needs to be all-singing, all-dancing. Below are the top three criteria for finding your perfect family car:
1. Claustrophobia, what’s that?
You’ve been there: trying to keep your luggage as compact as possible to fit in the car. It’s an absolute nightmare! But now that’s a thing of the past. The latest family cars are synonymous with spaciousness, regardless of whether you’re a five or seven-person family. Their generous storage provides ample space for both outdoor equipment and a pram. What’s more, the roomy interiors can comfortably accommodate the kids’ car seats too. The sliding doors are really handy, making getting in and out of the vehicle, or loading your luggage, a piece of cake.
2. Safety first!
You shouldn’t compromise when it comes to safety. That’s why state-of-the-art airbag designs and smart assist systems are a must have. A large windscreen and elevated seating also help the driver see even more of the road ahead. Comfy seats and all the room that passengers need to relax ensure that you’ll no longer be pestered with calls of ‘are we there yet?’ once the journey gets underway.
3. Estate, people carrier or minivan?
Choosing the type of vehicle can depend on how big your family is. A saloon provides seating for five people at most and loading it up can be a bit stressful because there aren’t many storage options. An estate, on the other hand, offers much more luggage room, while a people carrier can even accommodate up to nine passengers, and loading luggage is a doddle thanks to its large boot opening. A minivan is just like a larger people carrier. With this type of vehicle, passengers will definitely be driven around in VIP-style luxury. Extra benefits of minivans include their high level of comfort and spacious interior.
