Buying a Family Car? Make It a Toyota!

Previously, if you wanted a safe family car with enough seating and storage space, you usually had to sacrifice some level of comfort or technology. Today’s family cars have everything and then some with excellent safety features and even entertainment for the kids on long drives. When you purchase a family car from Toyota you’ll be spoilt for choice. Toyota’s range of stylish and spacious models fit for your family has all the features you need and want, and by speaking to your friendly Toyota car dealer you can get professional advice and a great deal on the car of your choice. Here are some of those must-have features you expect in a family car.


Safety is a major consideration when buying a family car. Every vehicle in the Toyota range is big on safety, so no matter how big or small your family is, the car you choose will be one of the safest on the road. Toyotas come with a complete range of safety features as standard such as reversing cameras, airbags, and pre-collision alert systems.

Room for Everyone and Everything

Depending on the size of your family, expect a surprising amount of gear to be travelling with you. No matter how old your kids are, there’s always something that needs to accompany them, even on short trips, so you want a family car with ample space for everything in the back. You also need enough seats for everyone, so if you have a large family, a people mover such as a Toyota Tarago might be your best option.


On long trips, you’ll be much more relaxed if the kids are entertained in the back seat instead of arguing and asking how much longer before you arrive. While USB ports and charging plugs are good for their devices, consider a family car with a built-in DVD system. Younger children will make use of pull-down seat back tables for snacks and games.


Built-in sun shades on the side windows are something you don’t really think about until you need them. You can quickly block the blazing sun and shield the kids in the backseat while keeping the entire car cooler.
