How to Find the Best Family-Friendly Vehicle

Finding a reliable vehicle for you and your family can be challenging. Besides additional seating, you’ll need plenty of cargo space, user-friendly features (especially for small children), and peace of mind knowing the van, car or SUV you’re looking at is backed by award-winning safety technologies. Young families require a vehicle that meets the needs of moms, dads and children alike. While you might have had to say goodbye to your favourite sports car to make room for a car seat and stroller, that doesn’t mean you have to compromise some of its favourite features. Many new minivans, SUVs and larger sedans come packed with state of the art entertainment technology, navigation systems, and even luxury elements like a sunroof, LED lighting and much more. When you have small children, there are three important features that all parents crave: child safety, easy access and sufficient cargo space. At Hanover Chrysler, we have some of the best family cars that are economical, affordable and child-friendly. Take a look at our 3 picks.

2017 Chrysler Pacifica

If you remember seeing comedian Jim Gaffigan’s funny advertisements for the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica, it’s clear that this new crossover is a parent’s best friend.With best-in-class power and towing, the new Pacifica is the most technologically-advanced vehicle of its kind and the first-ever hybrid electric minivan on the market. Featuring 8 seats and a stunning new interior, there’s plenty of space for your family and all of the belongings that come with them. While you’re up front in the driver’s seat, you’ll never have to worry about what the kids are up to in the back. Plenty of user-friendly features can be found in the second and third rows, like convenient cup holders for snacks. There’s also 243 cargo configurations, so you’ll be able to get everything from a favourite blanket to a five-foot teddy bear in the back seat. Not just for the kids, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica was designed with a series of excellent hands-free technologies like a hands-free power liftgate and dual sliding doors. Moms and dads usually have their hands full, which is why the new Chrysler Pacifica was designed with everyday life in mind.
