If you’re like most other men, I’m sure that your car will be your most prized possession. When it comes to buying a new set of wheels, I’m sure you will go for something that is as stylish as it is a great ride. Not only will you want a car that is good to handle and maneuver, but I’m sure you will want one that can impress you with its top speeds. It might be like a grown-up toy!
However, once you start to think about starting a family, your car needs will considerably change. Safety will become your number-one concern as you will now need an auto that keeps your whole family safe and secure. Not only that, though, but you will need a car that has plenty of space in it. After all, you will need to be able to get a stroller in there and a couple of children’s car seats!
Not too sure which cars are the best ones for families? Here are a few options that also look great!
Honda Civics have never been extremely expensive cars, and now that you will see quite a few in used-car adverts, you will be able to get them at very reasonable prices. This is a very reliable vehicle and, as long as you buy from a reputable seller, you shouldn’t have too much to worry about when it comes to car maintenance. Not only that, though, but it’s a really smooth drive and comes with plenty of space in the trunk.
Another classic family car, the recent Vauxhall Astra has undergone a bit of a redesign of its body work making it a very attractive car indeed. You also get plenty of car for your money. I’m sure you’ll be able to get all your holiday luggage into the car’s spacious trunk. The car is also very smooth to drive and offers good value for money when it comes to its fuel consumption.
Citroen DS 5
Citroen is a very reputable brand of car indeed so there is no wonder that its new DS 5 is getting some rave reviews. It comes with an upmarket interior and quite a reasonable price tag, so you’ll feel very stylish when you are driving this set of wheels around town. You’ll also find that it is very quiet when driving as well. Thankfully, that means there is little risk of the engine waking up your baby in the back!
BMW 1 Series
If you want a popular name parked in your garage, then you might want to go for the BMW 1 Series. Granted, you don’t get a huge amount of space inside, so this isn’t one for large families. But the engine is extremely efficient and the car itself is very easy to handle. You’ll find that this auto is perfect for long journeys.
So, which of these family cars do you think you will go with when you decide to start a family?
