Top things to look for in a family car

As a parent it is safe to say that your days driving reckless sport cars and sexy convertibles are probably over. Instead, you now seek for safety, security, easy access and plenty of room. Or, if you are expecting children but don’t believe our last statement, read on.

We at My Big Green Fleet have numerous family cars available to both buy and lease. How do you go about picking the right car for your family? We’ve listed the most common specifications below.

Space, space and more space

Overall, car space is extremely important to every parent who shops with us. At the moment, seven-seater SUV’s or Vans are commonly viewed, with families wanting a vehicle with enough room to seat everyone comfortably. To avoid stress, we always recommend that whilst viewing a new car, families bring all the essentials. For example, bring the pushchair that will need to fit in the boot, and perhaps bring along some car seats to check fittings. One particular model we have on offer to our customers is the Jeep Wrangler. We always highly recommend this vehicle if families are looking for a family car which is spacious, affordable and extremely stylish. Be sure to check this model out.

Scores on the doors

Every time a family comes to view a vehicle with us at My Big Green Fleet, we always advise them to check out the rear doors. They’re very important features if you wish to fit a child seat or get your little ones strapped in when you’ve got an armful of shopping. A number of our family cars boast rear doors which open widely. In some cases, they even close perpendicular to the car- all to make the loading process a lot easier. Our top pick for spacious doors is the Renault Grand Scenic MPV. Available to view and purchase with us at My Big Green Fleet, we certainly advise you consider it to transport your family.

Safety first

 Of course, safety is at the top of your list- as it should be. Make sure that the car you are looking at with us at My Big Green Fleet suits your safety requirements. There are numerous safety systems installed today, and it is important you find the best one for both your family and budget.

The test drive

 A family car should be easily parked. Whilst test driving one of our family vehicles, ensure that the driving position is high enough for you to see all around the car. Plus, you should be able to use the controls. Whilst looking for a family car, many of our customers request to test drive vehicles with parking sensors. These vehicles don’t have to be expensive, and are sure to save you a lot of time and trouble parking a larger vehicle. Additionally to this, you should check comfort, mirrors, speed and breaks whilst you test drive a family car. We at My Big Fleet have numerous family cars to choose from. All of which are highly affordable, though we do advise according to your budget and specifications. Are you currently looking for a family car? Check out our fleet here.
