What Makes the Toyota Prius So Good for Small Families?

As a parent or guardian, you consider protecting your child your first job. When it comes to traveling in the car, however, automakers don't make that job easy. For children too small to be properly restrained by vehicle safety belts, a car seat (or booster cushion for older kids) is necessary to keep them protected. Yet both front- and rear-facing child safety seats are notoriously difficult to install.

In 2015, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety rated the LATCH systems in 102 different vehicle models for ease-of-use, rating them as poor, marginal, acceptable, or good.

Unsurprisingly to parents, the majority did not perform very well.

This year, however, improvements are being made across the auto industry. Toyota in particular has been taking this problem seriously. The 2016 Toyota Prius not only earned a "good" rating, it was one only three models out of the 170 tested to earn the above-and-beyond rating of "Good+".

If you have a growing family, and don't need the huge space of a minivan or SUV, the Toyota Prius could be the ideal solution. Not only is it an IIHS Top Safety Pick+, it is also astonishingly reliable! Visit us is Lawrenceville, NJ to take a look at one, today.
