Child-friendly car options for today’s carpooling parent

If you have kids and need to fulfil your duties as a carpool driver, your car evaluation will come down to technology and practicality. Here are some choice options.

Someone once said parents make excellent CEOs because of their organisational skills, delegation abilities and quick decision-making capabilities. Used to carting children, school bags and sports equipment around, they also excel at evaluating cars.

Parents appreciate ample space, baby seat Isofix mountings, lane departure warnings, parking sensors with a camera, and a sophisticated infotainment system.

Safety is a top priority for any parent, and Volvo is renowned for its safety features. The Volvo XC60 is a car that is likely to receive a parent’s approval. It offers a high-riding SUV with air suspension, providing double assistance: A cloud-like ride that helps little ones fall asleep and a lowered suspension when the car is off, making rear access easier for children and removing items from the boot hassle-free. Plus, the tailgate can be opened by waving a foot under the boot sensor – a handy feature when juggling a baby, groceries, and more.

When you have five children seated behind you, life can become more stressful. The supremely luxurious and smooth-riding BMW X7, with its heated seats and massaging functions, helps alleviate some of that stress. This large SUV also boasts Satnav to prevent wrong turns while managing all the kids in the back.

Let’s not forget about the VW Caravelle MPV. One of its standout features is the wide-opening sliding doors, preventing the kids from banging doors in tight parking spaces.

The Porsche Cayenne offers true bragging rights on multiple levels, making it the ultimate choice for many parents. It combines luxury, power and excellent all-around visibility, making it easy to find parking spaces even during spirited drives.

A parent who drives a child-friendly car finds it less challenging to keep the kids happy in the backseat. Furthermore, driving a car that is both kid-friendly and parent-approved contributes to comfort and relaxation behind the wheel.
