Since the release of Volvo’s “Excellence Child Seat Concept” parents across the U.S. have been talking about the safety features in current vehicles. Volvo’s new theoretical design replaces the front passenger seat with a child seat. Some parents have been hesitant to accept the creative take on the family vehicle because historically it has been said that the safest place for a child in a car seat is in the backseat. In an article on Today.com Volvo stated that “from a safety perspective there is no difference between the rear seat and front seat, given that the air bag is disconnected”.
For those parents that aren’t ready to strap their precious cargo into the front seat, here are some other great cars that are family-friendly according to Parents.com:
- Honda Fit: This smaller car is easy to maneuver around town and can be parked in virtually any spot no matter how tight. But don’t let the small size fool you, this car is roomy on the inside with an extra 4.8 inches of leg room.
- Volkswagen Golf TDI: This is a modern twist on the classic family SUV. It carries 5 passengers so the whole family can fit and was one of the top picks for 2015 by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
- Nissan Murano: This family car looks more like a luxury vehicle but it can hold two car seats at once. The Murano comes with a 360-degree camera so you can detect objects surrounding the car and be the safest driver possible.
Child safety in cars including car seats, booster seat and seatbelt usage are the best defense parents can provide their children when traveling in automobiles. Upgrading your vehicle to a car that is more suitable for children is a good idea for everyone from the new parent to the seasoned pro.
