Five vehicle features for parents and kids 

While a third row of seating might make or break an SUV for you, there’s more to car shopping than the size of the vehicle. There are so many features aimed at families, parents, and kids nowadays for you to consider. Here are five of our favorite family-friendly SUV features.

  • Hands-free liftgate: A hands-free liftgate allows you to open the rear liftgate with a swipe of your foot, which can be easier for little ones who need to access the truck. Furthermore, it can be easier for you when you have your hands full. 
  • Lane Departure Warning: Let’s face it, the more passengers you have, the more likely you are to be distracted while driving. It’s important to always keep your eyes on the road, but Lane Departure Warning will let you know if you drift from your lane without signaling. 
  • Rear A/C: When it’s hot out, your little ones will thank you for getting an SUV with rear air conditioner vents. The extra airflow can really make a difference. 
  • Wi-Fi Hotspot: Families have a lot of moving parts, and sometimes an internet connection is crucial to keeping kids entertained or staying in contact with the babysitter. A Wi-Fi hotspot in your vehicle can keep multiple devices connected to the internet. 
  • Wireless phone charging: If you and all of your kids have a smartphone, that’s a lot of devices to keep charging. A wireless charging pad is one way to easily charge your phone without the hassle.
