The time has come. Your family needs a new vehicle, and now it’s time to break down the list of features that this vehicle needs to include. The problem becomes, what features should you even be looking for? We are going to be going over some of the top features on the market today, features that people swear by, and we can’t blame them for it. You need a vehicle that works best for your life and all of your needs, so, why compromise? Here at our dealership, we want to make sure you are never compromising, and we make it our job to have the best vehicles available for you to choose from. Keep reading down below for the best features to keep in mind when shopping for a family car.
What features should I look for in my next car?
Back-up camera: One of the biggest and most important features that you’ll find on many modern vehicles is a back-up camera. This feature has proven to be incredibly useful, especially for families. It allows you to have more spatial awareness than ever before, especially when backing up in a driveway, or in a busy parking lot. Children are often hard to see behind vehicles, especially larger SUVs. By including a rear back-up camera, you have the ability to see what is directly behind you, and prevent any accidents from occurring.
Bluetooth: In the modern era, it’s almost unheard of not to have Bluetooth in your vehicle. Some states make having Bluetooth even more vital, with hands-free laws that make sure you aren’t texting/talking on the phone while driving. Bluetooth enables you to link up your car with your phone, and never once look away from the road. You will also enjoy being able to jam out to all of your favorite tunes!
Blind-spot warning: As we turn back around to focus on safety, blind-spot warning has become a must. While no one should ever become reliant on technology, blind-spot warning attempts to make driving easier than ever. We all get distracted at times, especially with children in the car. This system keeps an eye on the places that you most likely can’t see out that well. Think of blind-spot warning as just an assistant, or backup, in case your kids starting fighting and you have to break it up.
LATCH system: One thing that every family needs, especially with younger children, is the LATCH system. LATCH stands for lower anchors and tethers for children. This system works well when loading a child seat into a car. When you come in to test drive a vehicle, bring your car seat with you to see just how easy it is to install into the vehicle you’re looking at buying. This is a small, yet important, step to take!
