It’s a simple fact of life: people with kids have different needs. Automotive needs are no exception. Families need more space, more family-friendly features, and better safety ratings.
Everyone wants a powerful engine and exciting performance, but when children come into the equation, suddenly having enough space for a car-seat is a top priority. And can you fit a stroller and diaper bag into the trunk of that muscle-car coupe?
U.S. News & World Report released its 2013 Best Cars for Families Awards, and seven vehicles offered by McGrath Auto were honored:
Compact Car: Chevy Cruze– The Cruze has many family-friendly features, including excellent fuel-economy and a large trunk for plenty of storage. With a comfortable ride, the Chevrolet Cruze is sure to please families large and small.
