Luxury Vehicles with Family Friendly Features

We don’t often think of luxury vehicles as appropriate for families. The thought of spilled juice boxes and loose French fries in the back seat of a $400,000 Rolls-Royce might invoke feelings of dread. The good news is that there are luxury brands for less that are designed with families in mind. These vehicles cover all segments of the industry from cars to shuttle the kids to school up to mega SUVs designed for comfortable road trips.


Chrysler Pacifica Pinnacle Hybrid


The Pacifica Pinnacle Hybrid trim is a minivan with plenty of room for a family and gear. This car can seat up to seven comfortably. The safety suite includes blind spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control.


There is a FamCam interior camera that allows you to keep an eye on the kids in the back seat. They will mostly be busy watching their favorite shows or movies on the rear entertainment system. The extra-large sunroof offers plenty of daylight and an opportunity for some night sky stargazing. An available Stow ‘n Vac system is a perk for easy cleanup.


Lincoln Navigator


We can’t talk about luxury vehicles without mentioning a Lincoln. The Navigator isn’t the largest of the luxury three-row SUVs, but it is in the road yacht category with enough room for a large family. There is an abundance of leather and wood accents to give you that first-class experience.


The 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost engine provides enough power to tool around town with kids and groceries or to embark on your next family vacation with luggage and gear in the cargo space. A plus is the power-deployed and illuminated running boards to help you and the kids climb aboard.


Audi A6 allroad


The Audi A6 allroad is a luxury wagon that is designed with families in mind who don’t want an SUV. This car sits lower to the ground for ease of entry and exit. This car is meant to tackle tough terrains for the adventurous family. The 335 horsepower V6 engine and all-wheel drive make this possible. Remote park assist is standard for ease of pulling in and out of spaces.


Two rows of seats can accommodate a family of five. The cargo area has 30 cubic feet of storage space that is adequate for a vacation. The 40/20/40 -split folding rear seats provide extra space for additional luggage.


Cadillac Escalade Premium Luxury Platinum


If you are seeking a big SUV with plenty of luxury, the Cadillac Escalade is the family car for you. This vehicle has an extended wheelbase for extra interior cabin space. Inside, you will find full semi-aniline leather on all 3 rows of seats, 41.5 cubic feet of cargo room, and a massive panoramic sunroof.


Infotainment and connectivity include a 38-inch OLED display screen and a 36-speaker AKG studio sound system. The Premium Luxury Platinum has an available refrigerator for the kids’ snacks or tailgate beverages. The engine has plenty of power to accommodate carpooling or long road trips.


Volvo V60 Recharge


Volvo’s V60 Recharge wagon is a smaller family car with a hybrid engine that is excellent on fuel economy. Despite the size, this car is zippy with 445 horsepower.


The cabin seats five in two rows. There is 22.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second-row seat. Volvo does not skimp on the safety and driver-assistance features, including DrivePilot hands-free adaptive cruise control. The Bowers & Wilkinson sound system is impressive.
