Mother knows best when it comes to her children, but what about what is best for Mom? A safe car. Mom’s are constantly on the go and often have kids in tow. Safety is paramount. Here are five safe cars to get your darlings to their destinations.
The name Volvo has long been associated with safety and the Volvo S60 is safety with style. The body of the Volvo S60 has really blossomed over the last few years, becoming an exceptionally attractive automobile. When driving the Volvo, you’ll love the looks, but you’ll also take comfort that you are literally surrounded by airbags and inflatable curtains. Both the interior and the front-end are also designed to protect you and your children by absorbing the impact in the case of an accident. The Volvo S60 is peace of mind in a hot ride starting around $30,000.
Saab 9-3 Sportcombi
Space. Mom’s need space. Cargo space, storage space and leg space are necessities for busy Mothers. The Saab 9-3 Sportcombi has space for all the daily gear that children take along with them today. With the return of the hatchback, you can carry heavy gear without the worry of crowded leg room. Safety concerns are worry-free too. Crush zones and crumple zones are in the front and rear of the vehicle and airbags are abundant. Under the hood there is a 2.8-liter twin-turbo V-6 delivering 250hp to get you out of the way when necessary. If you need a safe wagon to carry your crew, the 9-3 Sportcombi starts around $37,000.
Subaru Impreza Outback Sport
Not every mother can afford a luxury model automobile, but that doesn’t mean she has to forgo safety. There are options among the lower priced cars. The Subaru Impreza Outback Sport starts around $20,000 and still offers safety features such as electronic stability control just like the high end models. The five door hatchback is also all wheel drive, giving great stability in all conditions and it has side-curtain airbags, just like the luxury cars. The Subaru Impreza Outback Sport has room for the whole family at an affordable price.
Volkswagons are serious fun to drive, no doubt, and the Volkswagon SportWagon brings that fun to a family sized car. There is seating for five and room for all things necessary for a family outing or a trip to the mall. The car handles well, hugs tight turns and stops quickly. It also has quick acceleration. The Volkswagon SportWagon offers many of the same safety features as more expensive cars, including electronic stability control and crumple zones starting around $20,000. The Volkswagon SportWagon also has the coolest panoramic sunroof for beautiful views of the sky.
The Audi A3, starting at $27,000, gives you the luxury and safety of an Audi at a price much lower than expected. The Audi A3 feels as though you are riding in style. Every bump in the road disappears. The interior hugs you in your seat as well as the all-wheel-drive car hugs the road. Like the Volkswagon, the Audi A3 offers a panoramic sunroof, so not only are you surrounded by airbags and high strength steel and aluminum cross members, but also surrounded by all of the blue sky.
