In our last post, we were discussing which are the best family cars of 2015. The first three cars from our list were the Chevrolet Tahoe, Hyundai Sonata and the Honda Odyssey.
These three cars feature excellent safety standards. They are comfortable and have plenty cargo space. They also offer interesting equipment and child protection.
Little secret, family cars are super cool to wrap!
Starting at $15.000 the Kia Soul has become a favorite for young families. It is an affordable, versatile hatchback, loaded with value and efficiency. Despite its small size, the Soul can hold a surprising amount of gear. Its cargo volume can be as much as 61 cubic feet with the rear seats down, with the advantage of fuel economy as good as 31 mpg on the highway.
The car comes with a Dual Front Advanced Airbags that detect the presence of a front-seat passenger, monitors the severity of impact and controls airbag inflation accordingly to help reduce injuries in certain collisions. It also offers tire-pressure monitoring and hill-start assist on the standard model. 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.
If you buy an Accord as a family car, you can still make it look amazing with a cool vehicle wrap! For about 40, years this one has been a favorite. Known for its reliability and safety. In fact, it is considered by Kelly Blue Books one of the best resale cars. The Honda Accord offers plenty of room in cabin, excellent outward vision and easy-to-reach controls. It also comes with fancy technology such as: a standard 8-inch screen that sits prominently in the dash to relay audio, phone and navigation information. There is also a hybrid option, for the environmentally concerned.
The Accord comes with a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera, which allows a better view of what’s behind in three different angles: normal, top-down and wide. Also, a Tire Pressure Monitoring System, that alerts you when pressure in any of the four tires is significantly low. Its body structure enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions by distributing crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle.
Finally, we reached our number one. It wasn’t easy, especially with so many options and great reviews all over the market, nonetheless, after a lot of arguing and discussions we decide that the Toyota Highlander is the best 2015 family car. This is a cool and powerful midsize car, easy to maneuver, but capable of seating up to 8 passengers. The highlander comes with an interesting feature. The “conversation mirror” which is a smaller mirror tucked beneath the rearview mirror, allows mom and dad to keep track of what’s going on in the back. The car is smooth and comfortable on the road. The 4-cylinder engine or the powerful V6 are both pretty noiseless. Toyota also offers the Highlander Hybrid, which provides fuel economy of up to 28 mpg and the most power to boot.
The Highlander features the Star Safety System. A suite of six active safety features that include Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, Anti-lock Brake System, Electronic Brake-force Distribution, Brake Assist and Smart Stop Technology. It also comes with driver and front passenger dual stage airbags, driver and front passenger seat-mounted side airbags, a driver knee airbag, a front passenger seat cushion airbag and roll-sensing side curtain airbags, for all rows. The tire pressure monitoring system is also included.
Remember that in order to find the best car for you, you need to look at your family and see which is the one that best one suited for all your needs. Drive safely!
