When you have a family, especially one that you plan on growing in the coming years, finding a car to fit all of your needs can be difficult – particularly if you aren’t ready to be done with it and just purchase a bus. You want a car with space, advanced technological features, and most importantly, a car that will be safe even in the event of a car accident. And, it must be said, no matter how many children you have – you want a car with style. For those who aren’t ready to fully transition to a minivan or an SUV (or a bus), a sedan like the 2018 Chevy Sonic can be the right compromise that the whole family will love.
Mom Will Love It for Its Safety Features
There’s nothing that says more about being a mother than constant worry. You worry about your kids before they’re born, and you think that worry will dissipate once you can see them and assess their status here in the outside world. In fact, the very opposite is true, as the world at large presents even more dangers and uncertainties. You worry about them in babyhood, in toddlerhood, in childhood, and in all the years beyond. Worrying becomes part of your identity, and it is only a side effect of the deepness of your love for your kids.
Therefore, it’s understandable that most – if not all – mothers are very much concerned with the safety features when going through the process of buying a new car or a new motor vehicle. From seatbelt function to safety ratings, moms want to know it all. Fortunately, the 2018 Chevy Sonic is a car that will meet the high expectations of mothers all around the United States.
Take for example the fact that the center seat in the second row has a three-point seatbelt. This is a small thing, but an important one. It makes using the car to its full capacity even safer than in many similar cars. That middle seat in the back row has been much maligned by mothers and children alike (though for different reasons) for years, but now the mothers, at least, have cause to rejoice. The addition of three-point seat belt ensures that the child sitting in that middle seat is just as protected as their counterparts in the other seats in the car.
The airbags in the 2018 Chevy Sonic are plentiful, with ten total throughout the car. Aside from the standard airbags in the dashboard, there are dual front side impact airbags, rear side-impact airbags specially formulated to be safe for children of all ages, and even knee airbags – making sure that all parts of your body are protected in the event of a car accident.
But not all of the safety features in the Chevy Sonic are geared just towards the event of a car accident. As many moms know, there is no such thing as too much planning. The 2018 Chevy Sonic takes this into account and includes a number of features with the sole purpose of preventing accidents before they can even happen. Such features include traction control, brake assist, and four-wheel ABS brakes, as well as even more features like electronic stability and approach lights. To top it all off, the 2018 Chevy Sonic comes with rear child safety locks.
Dads Will Love It for The Additional Extras and Tech
Though dads too will be concerned with the safety features in any car that they seriously look into, it must be said that the technology and extra features offered consist of another big draw. Fortunately, the 2018 Chevy Sonic delivers, making driving a car feel almost like a luxury experience (though it may be a luxury experience with kids asking “are we there yet” every five minutes from the back seat). However, this car is so nice that you may not even care.
The 2018 Chevy Sonic has a number of optimal entertainment features, and even better, most of them come as a standard feature of the car, meaning that the new owners of the Chevy Sonic will not need to pay an additional cost to have them. Some of these features include speed sensitive radio volume, wireless phone connectivity (making driving safer than ever), and steering wheel mounted audio controls. If you’ve ever driven a considerable distance with a teenager, you know that this last option is extra important – it helps to have the upper hand whenever possible, and teens tend to like their music and decibels associated with hearing loss more than the average person. There’s even internet access, an ideal feature for those long, cross-country road trips. Perfect, again, if you’re traveling a great distance with an often cantankerous teenager or tween.
The Whole Family Will Love It for The Space
The 2018 Chevy Sonic is the ideal car for the growing family. It’s considered to be a midsize sedan, and while it may not be the best car for a family with more than three children – in that case, it’s best to size up to a minivan or even an SUV – it’s perfect for small families that are just starting out. The 2018 Chevy Sonic is the car that combines form with function, coming in as many as ten exterior colors and three interior color options with comfortable seating and spacious leg room in both front and back rows. The 2018 Chevy Sonic has safety features, and entertainment features galore, and the vast majority come standard with the car – ideal for the family that is looking to save a little money. Considered to be fairly priced, the Chevy Sonic makes a sound investment for any small and growing family, a midsize sedan that is likely to last as long as you need it and as long as it works for your family.
When deciding on a car, it’s ideal to go in and see it in person. The 2018 Chevy Sonic is no different and should be test driven and looked over before a final purchase and decision is made.
