The family car has been an American staple for about a century now. A car that could fit the whole family has been a necessity since cars were created. The vehicle that would run chores, pick up the kids, and take the family on trips. Everyone has memories of their family car, a nostalgic vessel that you are reminded of every time you enter a car, subconsciously comparing it to the first one you rode in as a child.
So what makes a good family car? A good family car basically needs to be a good car in general, that also provides the space and comfort for a whole family. You do not want to ride in a cramped sedan with your brothers and sisters touching shoulders. It’s something that could fit everybody and still have room for childhood friends to tag along or other family members to sit in.
A car that although is big and roomy, still has enough performance for dad to have fun with and scare mom on a long straight away. A good family car is one that never breaks down that allows everyone to ride in confidence.
It’s possible that what makes a good family car is the memories it allows to be created. These are some of the safest choices when choosing a new family car and I hope any new or incoming families make the most of their family car.
If you are having trouble with a damaged vehicle or need to get rid of a junk one, There is no need to worry and put off the hassle. You can sell your damaged or totaled vehicle and use the money you make for a new family car. Get rid of the hassle by selling it online where you can get a fair price too.
2021 Chevrolet Suburban
Some families are just a little bigger than others. Big families call for big cars and the Chevrolet Suburban is just that. These large SUVs can sit 9 people and still manage to feel roomy. There is also ample storage space which especially comes in handy when going on family trips. If you have a large family or even just tend to drive your whole social circle around, this is the car for you.
The Suburban isn’t just a large SUV. It’s packed with the safety features like automatic emergency brakes, a forward collision warning, and a parking sensor on the rear. There is even a teen driving mode which limits music volume and top speed if you’re concerned about how your teen is driving.
2021 Honda Odyssey
Some people swear by minivans, if you are one of those people the Honda Odyssey should be on your radar. Not only is it great at transporting the family, you also get great passenger and cargo space to store anything you could want.
Riding in the rear seat is like riding in the front of another car. The rear seat has its own entertainment system and climate control, along with a litany of USB connections and even a WiFi hot-spot. Anyone seated in the back will not only be comfortable, but entertained as well.
2021 Toyota Highlander Hybrid
If you are looking for something with a better fuel economy to save money and the environment, look no further than the Toyota Highlander Hybrid. This hybrid SUV has more cargo space than any other hybrid in its class. Combine the space with money you save owning a hybrid and you have a great combo going on.
The Highlander Hybrid also comes with the standard safety features you would expect from a family oriented vehicle. Not only that but expect comfortable features like a heated 2nd row and rear sunshades. A feature I thought was fun is that the driver gets an intercom like easy speak system which allows anyone in the driver or front passenger seat to communicate through speakers to the rear row.
2021 Honda Accord
If you are looking for a smaller car, the Honda Accord could be what you’re looking for. Not only is the sedan very roomy, offering great passenger and cargo space, it also has some of the better crash test ratings for sedans.
The safety technology in the Accord is some of the best on this list. Features like the forward collision warning, driver drowsiness monitoring, lane departure warning, and automatic emergency braking. You couldn’t do much better for a great family sedan than the Honda Accord.
