5 Features to Look for in Your Family Vehicle

When it’s time to shop for a new family vehicle, the key priorities are always safety, comfort and storage. But considering how much time you and the kids are going to spend inside the vehicle, you deserve to splurge a little. Today’s family vehicles offer some pretty cool and stylish features that even the kids will enjoy. If you want to get the most out of your new vehicle purchase, here are five features to look for in your family vehicle. 

The Magic Seat

The Honda Magic Seat found in the HR-V is a step up from the standard 60/40 seat option. This split second row offers drivers a number of unique configurations. Fold it flat to fit cargo in the back, fold it up to fit taller items like potted plants or lay the seats flat to take a nap. 

DVD Entertainment System

There’s no better way to keep the kids calm and relaxed while you drive than by turning on the advanced rear entertainment system. Both the Honda Pilot and Honda Odyssey feature a huge 10.2” resolution screen and Honda’s Factory-integrated Blue-ray system that keeps the back passengers entertained for hours and gives the parents a well-deserved break. 

Safety Tech

The top priority when shopping for a family vehicle should be the enhanced safety features. Collision avoidance technology, rearview cameras, driver assistance, LED lights and passive safety features are a must-have to keep you and the kiddos safe. 

Navigation System

If you’re always getting lost – even with Google Maps – the Honda navigation system is going to be your lifesaver. It uses GPS technology that communicates turn-by-turn voice commands, so you can get to where you’re going without having to take your eyes off the road. All 2021 models come standard with the Honda Navigation System, including the Civic, CR-V, Accord, and more.

Power Tailgate with Programmable Height

Another feature to look for in your family vehicle is the hands-free convenience of a power tailgate with an additional programmable height function. This neat feature limits how high the tailgate opens so you won’t have to worry about the trunk door hitting the garage ceiling.
