While it is the most exciting time of your life bring new life into the world it can also be a huge change that can be confusing and stressful.There are so many things you need for a new baby including a practical family car.You want something reliable and safe to bring your little one home.
Here we go through a few to make the car decision a little bit easier.
Get rid of the sports car
The time has come where we need to get rid of the fancy sports car and look into a family car that will fit everything we need in it.You may feel that getting rid of your eye turning sports car and buying a soccer mum car is a downfall, but it is something we sacrifice when the little one is near.
It doesn’t take long to realize all the other parents aren’t driving around in sports car they are all in family cars built for safety and space. There is nothing more annoying than pulling the seat forward and trying to get a baby out while supporting the head and maneuvering the child and yourself through the front seats each and every time you get in and out of the car it wont take long for you to walk into the car shop begging for a family car to make life easier.
If you have more than just the baby in the back seat perhaps you have other children then you need to find a backseat that is roomy and able to fit three car seats across it if need be. Going for a car with large boot size is needed for the bulky prams, the diaper bags, the toys, the picnic set and all the rest.
Have a look at the MPVs they have three rows of seats which still allows the family in the car and a few friends or other family members for a nice day out.
The cars with the high safety rating are the Ford S-Max, the Ford Galaxy, and the Citroen Grand C4 Picasso. These cars are reliable and offer the room the family needs with the best features you could want. They do have an expensive price tag but at least it will be safe for bubs and the family, reliable and won’t be replacing the car anytime soon. You can buy second hand which is cheaper as long as you buy from a reputable dealer so you know the car is legit.
Make sure the car you are buying has as many safety features as possible like these
- Collision warning
- Emergency Braking
- Curtain airbags
- Electronic stability control
- Cruise control
- Thorax airbags with the head traction control
- Blind spot warning set
- Fog lamps
- Reversing camera
- Lane keeper assist
- Seat belt pretensioner
- Traction control
No matter how expensive or how nice your car is you still need to make sure it has all the safety features it could possibly have to keep your family as safe as possible.
