Mother’s Day is a time where we honor that special woman in our life that brought us into the world. With that in mind, we decided to take a look at some cars that would be a perfect fit for a mother’s lifestyle.
Of course, not all mothers are the same, so our lists focuses on all the different types of mothers – those with a big family, those with a small family, or those that want to enjoy a little luxury. While we did our best to cater our list to all different types of mothers, all of the cars on our list have one thing in common – they all fit various needs of being a mother.
Let’s have a look.
The Honda Odyssey is the perfect choice for the super mom looking for a vehicle to pack seven kids with plenty of space for cargo, food/drinks, toys, and more storage capabilities. The Honda Odyssey’s innovative interior is focused on being the perfect family vehicle. Providing room for eight passengers total, the Honda Odyssey has fold-flat seats, plenty of storage bins, and even a trash bin. Oh, and did we mention it comes with 15 cup holders, an optional rear DVD entertainment system and a rear-view camera as standard. Want more? The Honda Odyssey also comes with a Cool Box (available on the EX-L models and above), that keeps snacks and drinks chilled while you drive! The 2015 Honda Odyssey carries a starting MSRP of $28,975 (prices may vary based on model, options and other fees).
