September 25th, 2020 by

What makes a car one of the best cars for small families? These can be a great starting place when it comes to features of your new vehicle for your family: 

  • Safety is top priority and all new Toyotas come standard with Toyota Safety Sense 2.0. Learn more about the benefits for you and your family, here. 
  • Leg Room for trips of all lengths is a must to keep the family happy and comfortable. 
  • Storage space is key to holding everyone’s travel bags, the sports equipment, or whatever you find yourself needing on your daily or weekend adventures.
  • Car seat abilities are a must if you have a growing family. Make sure the vehicle has multiple LATCH systems (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) if needing flexibility with car seat placement, or if you need to accomodate multiple car seats. 
  • Fuel Economy is something to seriously consider when looking for a family vehicle, so you can get the most mileage while making trips to the school, sports games or practices, and family outings.
  • Explore the technology capabilities of various vehicles. Would your family benefit from multiple USB ports, DVD players and/or a navigation system?

Considering the factors above, we’ve rounded up 5 of the best new cars for families, which you can find below. Get a feel for what these vehicles have to offer, and whether it is answering a question or setting up a test drive(did you know we can even bring the test drive to you?), we’d love to help you find your new family vehicle.
