Sure, your backseat might be covered in French fries, fruit snacks, and mini race cars, but is your car kid-friendly? Below we’ll break down a few of the latest and greatest features in today’s vehicles that will help keep your little ones safe and satisfied in the car.
 
#1: Backup and passenger side cameras
Reaching your arm around the passenger’s seat and trying to look over two child seats in the back doesn’t make it all that easy to back out safely. Side cameras help you keep your eyes toward the road, making merging and right turns a breeze—because driving with kids is difficult enough.
 
#2: Automatic braking
Your path seemed pretty clear on the backup camera even though you couldn’t see Mr. Tardy speeding down your street at 50 mph. But thanks to your vehicle’s automatic braking feature, your car came to a halt, preventing any possible collision.
 
#3: DVD players
If you have kids and you go on road trips fairly often, a DVD player in your vehicle is an absolute must.
 
#4: LATCH system for car seats
Without a LATCH system in the back seat, trying to secure a car seat is simply a pain in the neck. When shopping for a new vehicle, a LATCH system is another must if you have small children.
 
#5: Window locks
Kids love pushing buttons everywhere they go, which is why window locks are simply essential. Most cars today have them, but be sure to check for them in any vehicles you’re interested in buying.
 
Finding these kid-friendly features in a new vehicle is a piece of cake when you work with AAA Auto Buying. Our friendly and knowledgeable sales professionals have the expertise to help you find the perfect vehicle with all of the features you’re looking for. They’ll work at your pace and within your budget to get the safest vehicle for you and your precious cargo, without the hassle.
