Does Size Matter? Choosing the Just-Right New Car
What size vehicle is right for you? Between SUVs, CUVs, sedans, trucks, sports models, and compact
cars, choosing the perfect fit isn’t always easy. If you’re in the market for a new or pre-owned car, take a
look at the questions to ask before selecting a size.
Who Do You Drive in Your Car?
More precisely, how many people do you regularly drive in your car and what are their needs? If you
have young children, you’ll need enough backseat space for everyone and their car or booster seats.
Measure the vehicle’s seating space against the safety seat length and width.
Along with the space the actual seats take up, consider how much legroom your child or children will
need in the backseat. If the safety seat boosts your child up and out enough, you may need a larger
vehicle — such as an SUV or minivan — to accommodate their legs.
