What Parents Really Want From A Car

Yes, we know what you dream of when you’re hurtling (or crawling at snail’s pace in the traffic) between school, work and the kid’s extra murals.

A mega-espresso, courtesy of your in-dashboard coffee machine, perhaps? Or how about a snack dispenser instead? Maybe even a secret wardrobe compartment, because kids and stains go together like slaptjips and tomato sauce – which incidentally is exactly the kind of stuff that ends up on your shirt when you’re a parent.

We’re working on all that. But in the meantime, there are ways to make carting and carrying the kids seem less like punishment for something you still don’t remember doing wrong, starting with buying the right car. The TATA VISTA has a number of features that make it the perfect family car:

  1. Super-spacious interior

If you’ve ever found yourself envying limo drivers for those genius little electric glass window partitions their cars come fitted with, you’re probably not alone. What parent wouldn’t want to be able to escape their kids’ backseat squabbles at the push of a button?

Fortunately, there is a simpler solution. A roomy car means that the kids are well out of each other’s reach when their strapped in, which is why the TATA Vista has a spacious interior to keep the peace and ensure you’re ultra comfortable.

  1. Extra support for a smoother drive

Parents spend a lot of time in the car. In fact, a recent AA survey revealed that parents might spend as much as an extra 49 hours a month in the driver’s seat for their kids. Think about it. Besides school runs, there’s also all those sports days, trips to their friends and, of course, waiting around in the parking lot for the end of the school day. If you’ve ever wondered why your back is so sore all the time (ding-ding-ding!) you may have just found the answer.

The front seats of the TATA VISTA feature additional lumbar support and the car’s suspension is designed to handle rough road surfaces well, so you can say goodbye to a bumpy drive.

  1. A long list of safety features

While you may dream of the finer things in life, we know the most important consideration for buying a family car always comes down to safety, which is why the TATA Vista comes fitted with all this and more:

  • Both driver and passenger airbags
  • ABS with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution
  • Collapsible steering
  • Side intrusion bars
  • An engine immobilizer
  • Strategic crumple zones
  • Child locks on the rear doors
  • Full central locking

It even has integrated Bluetooth with steering mounted controls, to ensure you keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road at all times.
