When you’re buying a car for a growing family, there are lots of things to think about. Will your new vehicle fit a pram? How safe will it be? Will it still be big enough as your family grows? Is there room for camping trip equipment and even a dog?
At Mantello PEUGEOT we have years of experience selling new and used vehicles to families in Roxburgh Park and the surrounding area. Our state-of-the-art showroom welcomes customers (and their children) to come and find the car that suits you as your family grows.
Here are our top tips to help you find the perfect PEUGEOT for your growing family.
Think about safety
Every vehicle has an ANCAP crash safety rating and we don’t recommend anything with less than four stars. To achieve the maximum five-star ANCAP safety rating, a vehicle has to achieve the highest standards in all tests and must feature advanced safety technologies.
The all-new PEUGEOT 2008 SUV has a whole range of next-generation safety aids to ensure maximum support on the road. It also comes with a 5-year warranty and 5-year roadside assistance - the perfect reassurance for families on the road.
From autonomous emergency braking (AEB) or lane support systems (LLS), enhanced safety features can reduce your chances of road traffic accidents for you and your family.
Is it practical?
Taking things like storage into consideration will really save stress in years to come. Are there enough cup and bottle holders? Do you need under-seat storage? Lots of parents use their boots as nappy-changing tables – is that something you might need?
The NEW 5008 SUV is a 7-seater with interiors designed to maximise space. The collapsible seats provide extra versatility and the roomy boot leaves nothing to be desired.
We know the importance of trying before you buy. Lots of families enjoy test-driving their future PEUGEOT with the kids. This can give you a really practical idea of whether you’ll all fit in comfortably and how easy it is for everyone to get in and out.
Is it easy to get a child seat in and out of the car? Can the kids see out of the windows? How are the heating and cooling back there? Are the seats wipeable for those likely sticky situations?
What are your family’s needs?
How often do you really plan to drive on dirt roads? Will you want to go on a camping trip a year from now, with the whole family in tow? If you plan to drive long distances, a diesel car might be your best bet.
If you’re looking for the perfect family PEUGEOT, it’s hard to move past the NEW 3008 SUV. It’s got generous boot volume, innovative safety technology and cool multimedia features that the whole family will love.
