If I ask you which one would you prefer, Nissan GT-R or Mazda 3? You will scream GT-R at the top of your lungs without thinking much.
How do I know that? Well, of course, it’s a sports car!
But there is one little problem.
We have a family.
Now I am not saying your family is a problem (I really hope it’s not) but the problem is your family won't fit inside a two-door Nissan GT-R. In fact, in any sports car.
While we are growing up, we have ambitions to buy the latest beast the wonderful car industry has to offer, who cares about reliability? that's boring. But, gradually we realize that when we reach that stage, we would probably have a wife and a couple of children.
Due to this, unless you're a millionaire, all of us car enthusiasts have to give up on our dreams of living the lifestyle of a sports car driver.
If you are still focusing on that sports car dream of yours, this article is not for you.
But if you are ready to move on: We discovered something amazing!
A few days ago, we started doing research on what people look for in a family car. We approached people who were already married and had a family.
At first we got a few laughs, bad memories and a smile. When people actually started talking about what they considered the most important quality in a family car, we got a few interesting results.
The following were few of the responses we got,
“It has to be safe”.
“I think safety is the most important for my family”.
“It should focus on comfort rather than style”.
“My kids are too hyper, I need space”.
“Of course Safety”.
“I need a huge space where I can put my groceries, my baby’s crawler and my constantly moving 9-year-old son”.
We noticed the similar pattern in all of the responses.
Safety was the most important feature that both parents were concerned about.
The second most popular feature was a bigger space.
The third biggest factor was comfort.
After analyzing this pattern over and over again, I reached a shocking but obvious conclusion. All three of these features were an analogy to an actual home.
Think about it, a home is safe and it is a space for the family to live together a comfortable life! They just need the similar feeling in an extremely compact car.
After this realization, I started looking at family cars a little bit differently. One by one I started applying this new found perspective to different cars.
A lot of cars fit the description that could be great potential family cars. Safety, Space and Comfort were my primary fundamentals in my search.
In the middle of the search, I stumbled upon one car that I referred to as “The King of all Family Cars” immediately in excitement.
