Mom’s (and even dads!) are working hard every day to bring the kids to school, participating in carpool, and everything in between. To make mom’s job easier, newer model vehicles are starting to incorporate more mom-friendly features into them.
If you’re in the market for a new family-friendly vehicle, keep an eye out for these mom-friendly features.
Avoid meltdowns and grumpy kids in the car by occupying them with an in-care entertainment system. Whether it’s one screen, or individual ones that are in each headrest, allowing the kids to pick something to watch while in the car will keep them occupied and quiet, no matter where the road takes you.
Hands-Free Lift Gate
One of our favorite vehicle features, the hands-free lift gate allows you to open the truck when you’re juggling kids, groceries, and toys and also allows the kids to easily put their things in the car without the worry of fingers getting squished from the trunk falling on them. Many newer model cars have a sensor under the bumper that allow you to just move your foot in order for the truck to open and others just have a button on the car clicker.
Carriages, sports equipment, and snacks take up a lot of space in your car and with the help of in-floor storage you can store some of these more space-occupying items away leaving more space for other important items.
Along with in-floor storage, many newer model vehicles also have built-in coolers in the floor, side doors, and middle consoles. Take advantage of them! Keeping water cold on a hot day will keep you and your family hydrated and will allow you to pack cold cut sandwiches for post-game snacks.
Make cleaning your car more convenient with the addition of an in-car vacuum. In-car vacuums will also save you time and money and will help you avoid the local car wash as much as possible while keeping your car neat and clean.
