Select your dream family car
When will you plan to buy a car? Welcoming you newly born baby and having a growing size of family are definitely some of the reasons! This will be a family car by definition. Family cars need to be great at multi-tasking. So, there is a lot to consider when choosing the right one or your dream one!
Babies are small. They don’t take up much room, but their car seats, buggies and changing bags do. If you’re expecting your first child, be sure to buy your stuff first, so that you can estimate the space required.
Make sure that the back doors open wide enough for you to install a child car seat and get younger children in and out of the car. This is especially important if you suffer from a bad back or are more than six feet tall. Wide-opening doors are also practical if you regularly transport adult family members, especially those who are elderly or mobility-impaired.
You can push them back to increase rear legroom, or slide them forwards to improve boot space. Some cars also offer a small degree of recline on the rear seats, a good feature to stop kids’ heads lolling forwards if they fall asleep.
A family car is always a home away from home to all of your family members! So, find a car with lots of storage space and get ready for stuff like children’s toys, food, drinks, sport equipment and all the other detritus of family life.
Check the locks
If you’re buying a used car, check carefully if they’re in good working order. It’s also handy to be able to lock the back windows from the front as small children love playing with window buttons.
