Families come in different shapes and sizes but a big family typically has at least five people. However, most would agree, the larger the car, the better it is for a family, especially if the family is growing. There are many options for a family car on the market today with SUVs being the best choice, closely followed by minivans. It is up to the budget and availability of the vehicle if a family is to get one. The following are some of the best family vehicle options for used cars for big families:
The Toyota Sienna is a large minivan with eight seats. The five-door minivan has a V6 engine powerful enough to carry a large family and their luggage. It also has excellent reliability ratings meaning it rarely breaks down when driving. You cannot beat the Toyota Sienna’s practicality.
You can choose two-wheel drive during summer and all-wheel drive for harsher weather conditions. The climate control in the Toyota Sienna will ensure the whole family is comfortable in winter or summer. The price is also quite affordable for most families and so is the fuel economy for the roomy Toyota Sienna.
SUVs are the ideal candidates for big family cars because of their sheer size. The Chevrolet Suburban is a full-size SUV that can easily handle eight family members.
It has a powerful 320-horsepower 5.3-litre V8 engine that can haul just about anything the family can fit in the massive SUV. The Chevrolet can tow a trailer or boat if you want it to. The car includes safety features so you can be comfortable with the bulk.
The Chevrolet Suburban is perfect for a large family that likes to go on out-of-town or off-road trips. The vehicle’s all-wheel drive will ensure you never get stuck anywhere.
The Honda Odyssey is another outstanding family minivan. The minivan can seat eight people which is a large family by any standard. However, if not carrying that many people, the third-row rear seat folds to allow for extra cargo space (up to 38 cubic feet).
Even tall teenagers will have plenty of legroom in the Honda making it very family-friendly. The Honda Odyssey has a 248 horsepower V6 engine to move any load the family carries. The used car price for the 2014 Honda Odyssey will leave your mouth watering.
The Perfect Family Car
There is no such thing as a perfect family car but the three family-friendly options above come close. There are other minivans and SUVs from Ford, Nissan and others that you may like.
Consider the above for a family car if you have a large family. Going with a used family car will fit your specifications and your budget, so start looking for one as soon as possible.
