Did you get a new addition to your family recently? Or has your mother-in-law moved in? Or are you in charge of the team carpool this week? There are many reasons why a person needs a bigger family vehicle. The good thing is there are numerous vehicles that are now available to fit your growing needs.
2014 Ford Flex
I actually saw one of these vehicles in a parking lot the other day. I was really drawn to the style which is unusually for me; I mainly drive small compact cars. The car has room for seven which ideal for a large family. There is definitely room for baby seats and all the extras that go along with transporting children. The one downfall I could associate with this vehicle is the price which can be around $50,000 with all the extras. The MPG is around 20 EPA combined city and highway.
2014 Chevrolet Traverse LTZ
The Chevrolet Traverse will hold up to eight passengers with lots of leg room and cargo space. The Traverse is great for putting infant seats in the back; there’s plenty of room to get the child in and out easily. There is also an area that is completely hidden which allows the owner to store any valuables out of sight. The Traverse LTZ costs around $42,000. The MPG is 19 EPA combined city and highway.
2014 Honda Odyssey LX
The Honda Odyssey is definitely not your mother’s minivan. The Odyssey has lots of room for both the passengers and cargo. The second row can actually hold three car seats which is a plus for families with more than one child needing a car seat. There are extra features that are family friendly like the built in DVD player or game system which would be perfect when taking children on a long road trip. The Odyssey LX costs around $29,655. The MPG is around 22 EPA combined city and highway.
2014 Toyota Sienna
The Toyota Sienna is a minivan has room for seven passengers and plenty of room for car seats and cargo. The Sienna L costs around $27,780 and has cruise control which is a plus for long trips. The MPG is around 21 EPA combined city and highway.
2014 Subaru Forester
The 2014 Subaru Forester is excellent for child booster seats, there a lot room in this vehicle. The Forester also has lots of cargo space. The Forester 2.5i starts around $22,820 and increases in price with added extras. The MPG is around 27 EPA combined city and highway which is better than most family vehicles.
