How to Choose the Best Family Car or Luxury Minivan

You rely on your family vehicle for running errands, pick-ups and drop-offs, attending games and recitals, and family fun like beach days and road trips. You need to be able to haul people, things and maybe even pets at any time and you want something safe and comfortable. Choosing a family car is a big decision. Make sure you purchase the best family car for you by considering the following questions:

  1. What’s the maximum you are willing to spend?
  2. What is the vehicle’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) rating?
  3. How many miles do you average per year?
  4. How many seats do you need?
  5. Do you need the ability to haul large items (i.e. trailer, bikes, kayaks, etc.)?

 

Once you’ve created a short list of best family cars, compare their stats and schedule test drives at your local dealership before making a final decision. You can select a reliable, attractive and affordable Honda family car by comparing these three top choices with other vehicles you may be considering.
