Top 3 of our safest luxury cars for families
Who said luxury is limited to individual travelers? The mere fact that you travel with your family should not mean that you’re precluded from traveling in style. In fact, given the additional stresses and planning that needs to be involved, it might make the rental of a luxury car even more necessary.
Of course, not every luxury car or destination is family friendly. Naturally, frequenting the nightlife of Miami with a Lamborghini is probably not the safest destination or vehicle for your toddler or teenagers. Other cars, however, lend themselves uniquely to not just a driver or passenger, but the whole family. To help you find them, here are the top 3 safest luxury cars available on CarHopper for families like yours.
It’s perhaps the most well-known luxury SUV in the United States, and for a reason. The Cadillac Escalade boasts elegance and style, without sacrificing safety. In fact, it was named the world’s best Luxury SUV for families by U.S. News and World Report earlier this year.
First is versatility. Third-row seating is perfect for larger families, and the Escalade is one of the few SUVs that actually offers it without sacrificing leg room. Of course, you can also collapse that third row for additional cargo space.
And we’re just getting started. Everyone knows about the importance of digital devices for today’s children and teenagers. So how about LCD screens with DVD and BluRay players that offer in-ride entertainment for the easily bored kids? As if that’s not enough, OnStar 4G LTE turns your vehicle into a wireless hotspot, able to power up to seven devices at once.
There are only a few vehicles that get more luxurious than the Escalate in this market, but the Bentley Bentayga may just accomplish that feat. It’s as some experts state, the SUV you buy when money is not an issue.
Of course, when it comes to luxury car rentals, you don’t have to worry about sticker price nearly as much. So why not treat yourself and your family to this luxury option? With top speeds of more than 185 miles per house, especially older kids will enjoy the power of an engine typically reserved for sports cars.
At the same time, you don’t have to worry that this power somehow makes the Bentayga less safe. Safety features range from stability control, which helps the driver maintain control if the engine overpowers or the car starts to swerve, to seatbelt pre-tensioners that place passengers in the optimal impact position should the unthinkable happen. With this model, you don’t ever have to worry that your family is in danger.
3) Mercedes-Benz GL
A more budget-friendly version of the Bentley is the flagship SUV in the Mercedes family. Perhaps its greatest advantage is the smooth ride, making even large potholes seem almost imperceptible to anyone riding in one of its seven passenger seats.
The German automaker is known for not just its luxury reputation, but also its quality engineering. It’s no surprise, then, that the safety features included in the GL are top of its class. Distronic cruise control, blind-spot assist, and lane-keeping technologies are all included in most models of this family-friendly luxury car. Meanwhile, the mbrace2 communications system includes automatic collision notification, an SOS button, stolen vehicle location, geofencing, alarm notification and remote door lock/unlock availability.
But most importantly, the GL is fun to drive. When it comes to renting a luxury car, you need to make sure that it’s not just family-friendly, but also turns a standard drive into an experience. With the Mercedes-Benz GL, you will accomplish just that.
Booking the Right Luxury Car the Right Way When Traveling With Family
When it comes to traveling with your family, you need to find the right vehicle. But of course, choosing from the above is only the beginning. You also have to make sure that the service through which you book accommodates your individual needs, whether you intend to drive around in the Hamptons, Miami, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, or New York, San Francisco, or Fort Lauderdale.
We strongly believe that we can be that service for you. Our customers appreciate working with and booking their luxury and exotic car rental specifically through CarHopper because of our variety, and the ease of choosing and booking a luxury (or exotic) vehicle that works both for your destination and your individual needs.
