With a growing family, you need to finally upgrade your car for strong safety and great fuel economy. Good value for the money and a little bit of style are other factors that you should pay attention to before you decide to have a new vehicle.
Following are 5 most reliable family cars that you should consider in order to pick out the best one to haul around your kids. Let’s check out now.
1. Honda Accord
The fully redesigned 2013 Honda Accord returns to the top of the family-sedan class with a number of new specifications. Apart from a roomy and high-quality interior, the car’s styling is visibly less bulky. Besides, Honda adds power- and efficiency-enhancing direct-injection technology to the Accord's standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. With this four-cylinder, performance is markedly improved. What’s more, each car also comes with antilock disc brakes, active front head restraints, stability and traction control, front seat side airbags and side curtain airbags.
The 2013 Mazda 3 is a favorite among the compact car class with some new electronic features such as a USB audio input for most trim levels and a larger screen for the navigation system. In addition, the car is available in four-door sedan and hatchback body styles. Its interior is well-designed with the front seats enhanced by leather upholstery at the higher trim levels. Plus, it also comes standard with stability and traction control, antilock disc brakes and brake assist along with front side airbags and side curtain airbag.
3. Honda Odyssey
The 2013 Honda Odyssey, a 4-door, up to 8-passenger VM, is a top pick for minivans. The car is available in 7 trims, ranging from the LX to the Touring Elite. It comes with a long list of features including a USB input, a rearview camera, Bluetooth phone and audio streaming. The model also comes with a 3.5-liter V6 rated at 248 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque. So it is fuel-efficient, quiet, easy to drive. Plus, like the 2013 Mazda 3 and Honda Accord, the Honda Odyssey has antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, active front head restraints, front seat side-impact airbags and side curtain airbag.
4. Chrysler Town and Country
Apart from the 2013 Honda Accord, Honda Odyssey and Mazda 3, the Chrysler Town and Country is another family car that you should consider before making your own decision. Known for its standard luxury features like leather seats and power sliding rear doors, the model offers a strong engine, confident handling and a well-trimmed cabin. Additionally, the vehicle is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine that drives the front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission.
5. Toyota Auris
At between £14,495 and £21,745, the Toyota Auris appeals to your heart and head with many great features. While the Hybrid gives the car an angle that competitors lack, its engine lineup comes with a 98bhp 1.3-litre petrol, 130bhp 1.6-litre petrol and 89bhp 1.4-litre diesel. Although the model is an improvement on the old, it is still among the top-rated cars for families.
