Top Five Family-Friendly Vehicles


Choosing the right family vehicle can be a challenge, but family-owned Hudiburg Auto Group in Midwest City is here to help!

Hudiburg Auto Group has been in business over 60 years, serving Midwest City, Oklahoma City, and the surrounding metro areas. Hudiburg’s locally- owned dealerships include Chevy, Buick/GMC, Toyota, Subaru, and Ford. The group offers many more brands through its extensive used car inventory. The Hudiburg team treats customers like family, and supports the community through donations to causes including cancer research, military aid, and local school districts.

I sat down with Hudiburg’s general manager and learned more about the top five family-friendly vehicles for 2019.

1. Best SUV for Big Families – 2019 Subaru Ascent

   This is my DREAM vehicle. I love the Subaru brand, and this vehicle could last long enough to hand over to your own kiddos! Did you know, 98 percent of Subaru vehicles sold in the last 10 years are still on the road today?

The Ascent is Subaru’s first-ever third-row SUV, seating up to eight passengers. It comes with EyeSight Driver Assist Technology as a standard feature, which watches ahead and can intervene if necessary. This includes pre-collision braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane departure alerts. It also does your dishes – just kidding.

Call (405) 644-3100 to take a test drive today, and tell them OKC Mom’s Blog sent you! Hudiburg Subaru is located at 210 E. I-240 in Oklahoma City.

2. Best SUV for New Moms – 2019 Toyota Rav4

If you’re an expecting or new mom looking to step up to an SUV, the 2019 Toyota Rav4, available at Hudiburg Toyota, 5800 Tinker Diagonal in Midwest City, is a perfect fit. It’s a compact SUV, so it’s not too big, but you’ll get space and safety features you want for baby.

The technology here is top notch! Through touch or voice commands, the available Toyota Remote Connect34 feature lets you locate your car, lock or unlock the doors, or even start the engine — all from your Apple Watch® or Android™ smartwatch. It also features Toyota’s first camera-based digital rearview mirror, giving you a clearer view of what’s behind you.

Call (405) 741-4451 to test drive it today at Hudiburg Toyota, and tell them OKC Mom’s Blog sent you.

3. Best SUV for Parents of (future) Teen Drivers – 2019 GMC Acadia

This vehicle seats up to seven passengers and has exceptional cargo space, including optional second-row rear storage drawer, which could really come in handy for stashing emergency snacks, water and a first-aid kit. Did I mention the second-row seats can slide to give you easy access to the third row?

But the thing that really stands out to me is the Teen Driver Mode. It’s a built-in system that encourages safe driving habits for new drivers. If equipped, it automatically activates certain safety systems and allows parents to limit other features. There’s an in-vehicle report card that parents can access to help coach their teen driver! So, even if you can’t always be in the car with them, you’ll know they’re being safe.

Test drive one today at Hudiburg Buick/GMC, 6100 Tinker Diagonal in Midwest City, and tell them OKC Mom’s Blog sent you. Call 405-855-4111.

4. Best Family-on-the-Go SUV – 2019 Chevy Traverse

The 2019 Chevy Traverse is a show-stopper! It’s big, bold and beautiful. Plus, it’s NHTSA 5-star overall vehicle score for safety is undoubtedly a reason Parents and Edmunds named it one of the “10 Best Family Cars of 2018.” Well, we’re taking that into 2019, my friends.

This SUV flexes and fits to your lifestyle, whether it’s grocery shopping, road-trippin’ or game day, the maximum cargo space of 98.2 cubic feet has you covered. There’s even an available front hidden storage compartment for small items. It seats eight comfortably, has a hands-free gesture liftgate and the noise-canceling cabin helps to keep road sounds out and conversations in. That’s music to my ears.

Take the 2019 Chevy Traverse for a spin at Hudiburg Chevrolet, 6100 Tinker Diagonal in Midwest City. Call (844) 362-3330, and tell them OKC Mom’s Blog sent you.

5. Best Bang-for-your-Buck Family SUV – 2019 Buick Envision

This compact luxury SUV has all the bells and whistles and safety features you want with a sleek, stylish look. It seats up to five and gets 22/29 MPG city/highway. With intelligent All Wheel Drive with active twin clutch, Oklahoma’s unpredictable weather won’t slow your family down.

And get this…it charges your phone…without a cord! That’s right. Wireless charging – you can power up your compatible smartphone simply by placing it in the vertical charging pocket of the Buick Envision. The available panoramic moon roof will give your baby a view of the stars on those late-night drives around the block so they can catch some z’s.

Test drive the 2019 Buick Envision today at Hudiburg Buick/GMC, 6100 Tinker Diagonal in Midwest City. Call 405-855-4111, and tell them OKC Mom’s Blog sent you.
