Shop family cars with our tips!
The best way to ensure you find the best family cars on the market is to do your research beforehand, and make some lists. What parent doesn’t like lists? We’ll start there.
List #1: This list should be full of must-have qualities for your new ride that you just can’t compromise on. Here are some of the things to consider:
- Size – How many passengers does it need to fit, and how much additional cargo space do you need?
- Fuel efficiency – How much will it cost you to fuel up and how often will you have to do it?
- Performance – Do you need an Orlando Toyota that can tow? Does it need to have four-wheel or all-wheel drive? Which performance capabilities are non-negotiable for you?
- Safety – Which safety features are going to be must-haves for you? Think about things like seatbelts, the LATCH system for car seats, and other important kid-oriented safety elements.
List #2: This list should be full of things that you’d LIKE your new ride to have, but if you can’t work them into the final package, you’d be OK with it. Here are some of the things to consider:
- Technology – Do you really want the latest and greatest sound system? What about app connectivity and Bluetooth? How about a backup camera or a HomeLink Universal Transceiver?
- Versatility – Do you NEED to have a power liftgate or power rear sliding doors? How about fold-flat and removable seats? Which versatility elements will make your family drive time easier?
- Cleanability – What type of interior do you want – cloth, easy clean, or leather? Do you need floor mats to protect the carpet? What about
- Style – Are you staunchly against minivans, or is a Swagger Wagon your type of ride? Think about paint colors, body style, and added features like rear spoilers, fog lights, and roof racks.
