Mommy Motoring: Choosing a Safe Kid-Friendly Car

Published by:

Before you had children, perhaps you enjoyed the wind blowing through your hair as you drove your two-seater convertible, or cruising around the city in your stylish sports jeep. As you probably already know by now, the car you enjoyed driving before you became a mom might not be that practical now you have little ones to think about.

Making sure your children are comfortable and safe when taking them for a ride in your car will make a journey much more pleasurable and put your worrying mind at rest. So read on to find out what type of car you need and how to keep your kids safe when in the car.

Choosing the Right Type of Car for Your Kids

There is by no means one particular car that is best for families, but what you need to think about is the quality, reliability, and safety of your chosen car. It’s worth looking at safety records of cars before you decide on a purchase, and also how fuel efficient it is. As any mom knows, raising a family can be expensive, so wasting money on a gas-guzzling SUV is probably not the best idea. Also you should be thinking of your child’s future, and how to best protect the environment and conserve the earth’s resources for them. It really is worth talking to other mom’s you know and finding out what they drive, them comparing models until you find one that you are happy with, so do not rush into it.

Popular choices for many families are station wagons and saloons, and having a four door vehicle does make it easier to fit child seats in the back. Making sure you have enough space to transport a pram and the weekly grocery shop is also important. You should also think about the interior of a vehicle, because we all know how messy children can be. Avoid light coloured materials, as they will inevitably become stained after some time. While leather is a more expensive option, it can be a much better option. Being able to easily wipe down the interior surfaces after food and drink have been spilled can really help to keep your car clean and hygienic.
