Being a mom doesn't mean you need to give up on the car of your dreams. If you've been dreading the idea of having to give in and purchase a minivan, you're in luck. From the Honda Odyssey to BMW's SUVs, there are tons of fantastic and powerful options that have just as much utility.
The Benefits of a Luxury Car vs. the Mom Van
Minivans are all about convenience. But what if you could get that convenience in other ways? Luxury cars have some clear advantages over others. With a smooth ride, they are ideal for drivers who need to complete many daily tasks. Their infotainment features often include DVD systems and more, to keep children entertained. And, of course, there's the safety factor: luxury vehicles are almost always safer than other types of cars. Altogether, this means getting a reliable, convenient vehicle that has all the features of a minivan and more.
Choosing the Right Luxury Car for Mom
The Honda Odyssey is an excellent all around choice, with a powerful 248 HP engine, solid handling and a variety of great features. But there are also sportier luxury options as well, which will ensure that mom has a fun time even when not shuttling the kids. The BMW X5M is a fantastic option for this. It has a powerful V8 engine, sporty suspension and sleek styling. The children won't be embarrassed to be dropped off by this vehicle.
There are also some other slightly more traditional options for those who want a basic SUV. The Ford Flex has a 365 HP V6 engine, three-row seating and entertainment and sports packages available for the discerning driver. This is all the functionality of a minivan with the addition of style, power and flair.
Finally, there are some top of the line luxury vehicles such as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet. When it comes to luxury, you can't beat a Mercedes. This is a vehicle that can seat five to seven passengers and even has sporty, off-road capabilities. An attractive, low-slung exterior and a well-appointed interior keeps mom driving in style, while the all-wheel drive and agility control improves handling. This is absolutely an ideal SUV for someone who enjoys off-roading, sports, and adventure.
Maybe mom could do with a little luxury this year. Just because you're a parent doesn't mean you need to give in and get that minivan. Of course, a luxury car is going to be more expensive, but that can also be mitigated with the purchase of a dependable pre-owned vehicle.
