Family cars can quickly become a second home for pets, kids and parents as mums and dads spend more and more time in the car. Yet despite the daily journeys, there are a few memorable driving moments that last a lifetime.
A recent survey by Citroën found that driving a new family member home from the hospital for the first time was the most memorable driving experience – so it’s important to ensure you do so in the right vehicle.*
Car Loan 4U Co-Director James Wilkinson commented:
“For some, cars are just a point to get from A to B but many parents experience some of the most memorable moments of their life in a family vehicle.
“This includes the anxious drive to the hospital for the birth of a child or the first time a newborn comes home with mum and dad, which is why it is imperative you have the right car for such a special journey.
“Safety is a key feature for parents when they’ve got youngsters in the car and finding the right family vehicle could be tricky. This is why it could be worth investigating the Euro NCAP score to see how the vehicle rates for car crash safety and child protection.”
One of the key things to consider in addition to safety is the size. You might want a car that is built to last but it must also accommodate the whole family and the kitchen sink. Hatchbacks typically have bigger boots than Saloons, and the Ford Mondeo is a firm favourite.
“In addition to safety features such as child locking or child friendly features, you might want to look at the seating flexibility for additional space and comfort on long journeys,” Mr Wilkinson continued.
“Brands like Ford, Citroen, Vauxhall, Skoda and Hyundai as well as larger Volkswagens always prove to be popular with UK families. If you’re looking to buy a new family car, a cheap car loan could help.”
Anyone looking to buy a new car might wish to consider their car finance options. Cheap car finance is available from Car Loan 4U.
