Ways to choose first car for your kids

Chennai: Parenting is a full-time job. No matter how old their children might be, most parents devote a lot of time to ensure they are comfortable and safe as they transition through different phases of life.

A crucial decision amongst those is helping children pick their very first car. Here are some simple tips that can guide parents in choosing the perfect car for young adults.

There’s nothing more important than keeping your child protected. But, unfortunately, nearly 70 per cent car buyers in India don’t consider safety as a top purchase reason, a recent Ford Twitter Survey with more than 20,000 respondents revealed.

Therefore, no purchase is worth the effort if safety isn’t the topmost consideration. Essential safety features include airbags (the more, the better), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD), traction control and superior quality metal (conductive alloys). But buyers should read the fine print and get to know about some inherent safety features of their preferred car, like build quality, of the models you are considering as well.

Choosing the right transmission is a must to ensure the right convenience for a young adult. Depending on their preference, buyers can pick from several manual or automatic transmission options available.
