The Ultimate SUV

The Ultimate SUVHow do you pick out the perfect new family car? First, you will need to evaluate the new car’s safety features. You want to pay attention to make sure it has good results in crash tests. You also want to look for a vehicle that has low rollover statistics. Also, look for cars that have a latch system to tether in your car seat if that is applicable, an on-off switch for the front passenger airbag, advanced airbag features, front seat side impact airbags, rear seat side airbags that are safe for children, lap and shoulder belts for all seats, anti-lock brakes, interior trunk release and a backseat that can comfortably accommodate your car seat if applicable.

Second, when looking for the perfect new family car consider how you will be using the car. Make sure you account for how many kids and pets that you have and may be transporting at any given time. Also, consider if you will be carpooling with other people’s kids. You want to make sure that there is plenty of room for your needs.

Third, take time to consider where you will be doing most of your driving. If you are driving mostly in the city and doing a lot of errands perhaps consider getting a smaller car so it’s easier to park. Keep in mind gas mileage as well which is determined by where you will be doing most of your driving. Getting a car with a large tank, can help cut down the number of stops you will take to get gas which can be nice and more convenient. Keep in mind the weather of where you live. If you live somewhere with lots of snow, rain or ice get a car that has good 4-wheel drive. It is important to have a car that can safely navigate through weather conditions where you live. Also think about how much storage you will need. If you need a lot of storage capacity consider getting a car with a good sized trunk.

Finally, utilize the test drive. Bring your whole family, because they can help determine what will be the best fit if they are there. Are you able to get your small kids in and out of the car easily?  If you have kids who are a little older, will they be able to get in and out of the car on their own? Make sure both you and the kids are comfortable and everyone fits nicely.
