Why Parent's Magazine Recommends 2 Family Friendly Subarus

1280 × 853As a parent, your whole life is about protecting your children. From the time when they are too small to walk until the day they go off to college, you are always looking out for them. Part of looking out for your children’s well-being is making sure that you choose a car that has plenty of safety features that will help ensure that your children remain safe and sound. Choosing the right car can be challenging, even overwhelming. There are so many options out there. What body type is right, which car will stand the test of time? Luckily, Parent’s Magazine has narrowed down the options and selected two excellent candidates for you.
When it comes to convenience, reliability, and features that are parent-friendly, nothing beats an SUV. There are many reasons why SUV’s are so popular among families these days. They typically get great gas mileage, and they tend to have spacious interiors and plenty of trunk space as well, which elevates them above more compact options. An SUV makes the weekday-to-weekend crossover with ease, functioning equally well as a weekday commuter vehicle as it does a weekend fun vehicle. Two great options for SUVs are the Subaru Forester and the Subaru Ascent, and both have been mentioned in Parent’s Magazine as great family-friendly SUVs.
The Subaru Forester has tons of features that are particularly attractive to parents. The Forester gets good gas mileage, up to 33 MPG, which means savings that can be spent elsewhere. Added extras like Lane Keep Assist and DriverFocus™ Distraction Mitigation System help to keep you and your family safe, even when there are distractions in the backseat. Other great safety features include Blind-Spot Detection, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and a Rear-Vision camera which comes standard with all models. All-wheel drive comes standard on the Forester, making it a great weekend car!
The Subaru Ascent is an excellent car for larger families, with three rows of seats to accommodate more people (or more cargo). The Ascent is a step up from the Forester when it comes to power and would be ideal for a family who likes to get out and explore on the weekends. With a standard direct-injection turbocharged engine and Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, the Ascent is the perfect SUV for leaving the city behind and getting into the great outdoors. Plus, with excellent safety features, the Ascent is a no-brainer when it comes to a family-friendly vehicle. The STARLINK Safety and Security system offer Advanced Automatic Collision Notification and SOS Emergency Assistance, among other features. You’ll also find Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Blind Spot Detection, as well as LED Steering Responsive Headlights, a Smart Rear-View Mirror and High Beam Assist.  With options like the STARLINK Entertainment Anywhere system and the built-in WIFI, your family will always have something to do so you can just relax and enjoy the ride.
