Posted by Poquet Auto on May 15, 2018 6:24:00 AM

Happy Mother’s Day from the team at Poquet Auto!

In honor of Mother’s Day, here are our top 3 favorite vehicles for families. From the traditional minivan to sedans with a surprising amount of legroom, these vehicles have the kid-friendly functionality you need.

1. Minivans

Minivans are often the first vehicle that comes to mind when you’re thinking about purchasing a family vehicle. These days, many families are opting for SUVs instead. But minivans still offer a number of selling points.

The biggest advantage a minivan offers? Space. Whether you’re loading up sports equipment or travel gear, minivans give you the space you need for your kids and your equipment. Cut down on backseat squabbles by giving everyone space to breathe.

Minivans also boast sliding doors, which makes it easier to load kids in and out. With sliding doors, there’s less need to worry about the space you leave between one vehicle and the next.

Finally, minivans often boast better gas mileage than SUVs. Whether you’re planning a spring road trip, or a lot of trips around town, a minivan will get you where you need to go, while keeping your costs down at the pump.

Check out our inventory of minivans here.

2. SUVs

If you’re looking for a vehicle with more storage space than a sedan, and a more fashion-forward image than a minivan, a SUV may be your perfect vehicle.

Want space for a bigger family, or a few friends? With a variety of three-row SUVs on the market, you can get the seating capacity you need without the larger footprint of a minivan.

Need a vehicle with towing capacity? A pickup truck isn’t your only option. Many SUVs today offer impressive towing capacity, perfect for that boat or trailer. Plus, their height off the ground gives you the visibility you need to stay safe on the road.

Check out this US News and World Report article for the top 2017 SUVs for towing, and this Cars.com article for great 2018 SUVs for towing.

3. Sedans

If you have a smaller family, a sedan may be a great option.

Why? Sedans are known for their superior fuel efficiency and maneuverability. Whether you’re winding through mountain roads with your family, or trying to navigate tight corners in the city, a sedan gives you the control you need to get around with ease. Plus, parallel parking a sedan is much easier than trying to wrestle a large SUV into a tiny space.

Sometimes, sedans offer limited legroom and storage space. However, if your kids are under six feet tall, and you have enough space for the gear you need, a sedan can still do the trick. Just make sure you know the size kids and gear you’d like to stow, and make sure the option you choose will do the trick.

Do you spend a lot of time chauffeuring kids to soccer, dance, or music lessons? Does your family spend a lot of time up at the cabin or on long road trips? Save at the pump this summer with a fuel-efficient sedan. Check out one of these cars, which get over 30 miles per gallon.

Which Vehicle is Right For You?

Sometimes, it’s hard to tell what vehicle is right for you on paper. So swing by Poquet, and test drive the vehicles you’re thinking about.
