What to Look for When Buying a Family Car

Buying a new car for yourself can sometimes be a tricky task, but buying a car for your family is even harder. We’re here to help by giving you some tips on what to look for when buying your family car.

First Tip – Airbags
This is a pretty obvious one, as you want to protect your family incase of an accident.
The Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) advises new car buyers to look for, at a minimum, “front, side, curtain and knee airbags for maximum safety”.

Second Tip –  ANCAP safety rating
Even though cars here in Australia have the ‘Australian Design Rule’ (ADR) in order to be sold here, ANCAP provides an independent safety rating of new cars that assess their performance in crash tests and across many areas. If you wish to check the safety rating just type the model and make of car into ancap.com.au.

Third Tip  – Leather Seats
Now this isn’t a safety feature, but having leather seats especially if you have quiet young children is a great idea. It’s a lot easier to keep clean.

Fourth Tip – Reverse Cameras
Reverse cameras not only make tasks like reverse parking easier, but they’re also a good safety feature to, by allowing you to see behind your car when reversing. 

Fifth Tip – A Big Boot
Having enough boot space is definitely needed. The more children you have the more boot space you need! You’ll need it large enough to suit your family and their things.

In conclusion, there are definitely lots of things to consider when buying a family car. And the ones listed above are just some popular ones. You may also have your own features in mind that your family would like in order to have the most practical car for yourselves.
