As your local, family-owned Peoria Hyundai dealership, we know that drivers with families have driving needs that are very different from other types of drivers. The Hyundai lineup isn't the biggest, but it does house an astonishing diversity of body styles, capabilities, and features; at Mike Miller Hyundai, we enjoy the challenge of matching up families with the safe, spacious vehicles that meet their needs.
Family Car Considerations
In Peoria, families are looking for vehicles with three main characteristics: space, safety, and the durability to handle the wild fluctuations in Midwestern seasonal weather. Peace of mind is crucial when you're driving around with kids, so features like driver assist features, a backup camera, four-wheel drive, voice-command options and child safety locks are often the first things car shoppers look for. Family-car shoppers also like knowing that the models they're looking at have excellent track records in crash testing, so reviewing NHTSA and IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) scores is key.
Hyundai Models That Are Perfect for Families
The 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe is a great fit for active families. It offers plenty of power for adventures on the roads less traveled via its 265-horsepower, four-cylinder engine, and controlled handling with standard front-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC® and Active ECO System. Inside there's seating for five and 71.5 cubic feet of cargo volume, and the 40/20/40 split-folding seats provide flexibility for utilizing that space as you need to. Downhill brake control, 2nd-row LATCH, and options like Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane Change Assist and Rear Parking Assistance offer protection and peace of mind.
The 2016 Hyundai Tucson is a stylish alternative, offering drivers 164 horsepower from its standard engine, front-wheel drive and a seven-speed EcoShift® Dual Clutch transmission on the Eco, Sport, and Limited trims. Its body is built with advanced high-strength and high tensile steel, and SACHS® gas-pressurized shock absorbers work with Motor-Driven Power Steering to provide smooth handling and easy driving. Of course, this model has LATCH and the rearview camera is standard.
