If you have a big family, getting out and about together can be extremely difficult, especially if you want to go by car. Thankfully, automakers have risen to the challenge, coming out with some absolutely fantastic vehicles to accommodate big families. Finally, it is now possible to go to the beach in one vehicle, or even do that big road trip you have always wanted to do. The following is a look at some of the best cars available at the moment for big families.
2007 Chevrolet Suburban E85
This awesome vehicle has all the space you need to transport your large family in comfort and style, designed to fit nine people via three rows of seating. Anti-lock brakes and electronic stabilising come standard, as well as a state-of-the-art car suspension system, helping keep everyone safe as well as happy. There is even an extra 45+ cubic feet of storage space located behind the third row of seats.
2006 Volvo XC90
This is the perfect family vehicle for those who want an extremely safe ride, as well as being roomy, comfortable and stylish. The XC90 comes with side curtain airbags, disc brakes, ABS, shock absorbers and a wide variety of other safety protections. One of the highlights is an electronic stability system that uses sensors to detect when a rollover has occurred, and then can activate individual brakes as necessary to regain stability.
2007 Acura RDX
The redesigned MDX is better than ever in its new RDX version, with the big improvements being the 300-hp V6 engine, and a great new look, allowing large families to cruise around in style as well as comfort. The Acura RDX seats seven, and if you opt for the Entertainment Package, your whole gang will be well and truly entertained via the DVD player, nine-inch flip-down television screen and separate wireless headphones.
2006 Kia Sedona
This extremely popular minivan offers comfort, safety and fantastic value for money, and is considered by many to be the best deal for big families. The Sedona received top scores on the respected Insurance Institute for Safety crash tests, and despite its small price tag, offers a fantastic array of features that outperform many of the more expensive industry heavyweights. The Kia Sedona also comes with the best warranty of all minivans, making it a standout deal for big families with or without a lot of money.
2007 Honda Odyssey
This stylish vehicle can do it all, starting with seating eight people in absolute comfort. The Odyssey also gets the best petrol mileage of any large minivan on the market, and has performed extremely well on a wide array of crash tests. Offering a huge amount of luggage space, a 3.5-litre V6 engine and a wide range of entertainment options, the Odyssey is a little pricier than some family vehicles, but well worth the investment.
Whatever your family likes to get up to, if there are a lot of you, make sure you have a way to comfortably get around, because it will be easier getting out and being active together if transport is well and truly taken care of.
