Best Vehicles for Moms on the Go!

Are you a typical mom who transports a group of kids on a daily basis? In search of a good family car? Well here they are, our best picks!

The first is the Cadillac DTS. This model is now the ultimate luxury cruiser. It has a much more aggressive look than the older models, and has new bodywork that looks as though it was crafted from a single piece of billet steel. V8 power is standard in the form of GM's superb 4.6 liter, Northstar engine, which is tuned to 275-300hp. It also has a magnetic ride control system, which is standard, and state of the art comfort including heated and ventilated seats and dual depth air bags. The estimated base price is $49,000.

Another is the Pontiac Torrent. This model is a combination of a traditional SUV and a traditional minivan. It has the same 3.4-liter V6, which is used in the Equinox. It comes with front wheel drive standard, all wheel drive system (available at an extra cost), and a rear seat that moves backward or forward as far as 8in. The cargo space is huge, which is great for moms when you go food shopping with the kids. You have plenty of room for both. The average base price is $23,000. Definitely a great deal.

The Mazda 5 is a totally new model from Mazda. It is nicknamed the "space wagon", which is an upgrade on the minivan theme. It has lots of room for up to seven passengers, but it is not big and bulky on the outside, which makes it easy for mom's to maneuver into those tight mall parking spaces. It also features a high roofline, dual sliding doors, a convertible center console that can be flipped over to make room for the seventh passenger, a drop-down DVD Entertainment System, and flexible storage options for carrying a large cargo load. It also offers both automatic, and manual transmissions.

Sure to be very controversial due to the styling the Subaru Tribeca is another great addition to the medium size luxury SUV/crossover market. The Tribeca has luxury and performance. It features a two-tone dashboard, available third-row seating with a 40/20/40 split-folding rear bench seat, and a symmetrical all-wheel-drive system with a five-speed automatic. This is definitely a vehicle for large families. Or for those moms who transport the kids back and forth to school or the typical extracurricular activities. It is also a very affordable vehicle. The base price is $35,000.
