1. Many provide HDMI vents along with inputs for plugging in all types of devices. Chrysler’s new Pacifica minivan goes a step further, with a kid-friendly entertainment port with apps, games, and also an “Are We There Yet?” Function when a path is active, that syncs up with the navigation system of all the car.
2. Refrigerated Compartment No one needs a juice box. A couple of vans and SUVs have the option for a refrigerated compartment built into the center console to help resolve that problem. Honda, for example, calls it the “Cool Box” from the Odyssey minivan, while owners of their more luxurious Cadillac Escalade and Range Rover SUVs may use their cooled compartments to chill some more refined beverages.
3. Motion-Actuated Power Liftgate When you’ve got your hands full of other odds and ends or groceries, attaining to open fumble or the liftgate with a key fob can be a struggle. Having a hands on liftgate, the power liftgate is activated by a movement sensor beneath the bumper. Although in practice these systems are not always quite that simple to operate in theory, it is as simple as an easy kick of the foot.
4. Integrated Booster Cushion In the life of a kid, the booster-seat stage comes after they have outgrown a typical car seat. Volvo was a leader of the booster cushion, which increases the lower pillow for children that are smaller of the seat. This permits them to be positioned without needing for the seatbelt to install a booster seat.
5. Although all passenger cars, besides two-seaters, have to have lower anchors and tether anchors (comprising a full LATCH system) in at least 2 seats positions, not all three-row vehicles have both lower anchors and tether anchors for its rearmost row. It’s not impossible to install a child seat without a complete LATCH installation–a standard seatbelt will suffice when utilized to secure the child seat–but using both sets of anchors makes the procedure easier.
6. Easy Tumble Second-Row Seats Not all of tumbling second-row chairs are made equal. Meant to ease access to the next row in SUVs and crossovers, the clunky folding mechanics in some vehicles aren’t intuitive to function. The Pilot’s system folds the seatback and slides forward at the touch of one button, and a part of the Pathfinder’s next row can fold forward and slide without needing to eliminate a child seat installed with LATCH anchors.
7. To help prevent parents from leaving these valuable cargo, General Motors introduced a brand new system which reminds the driver. If either of the rear doors is opened within 10 minutes of the vehicle being started, or if either back door is opened and closed while the vehicle was running, the gauge-cluster display indicates a warning along with five chimes sound as soon as the vehicle is switched off.
8. Built-In Vacuum Cleaner If a minivan is an expansion of your family’s house cleaning is crucial in the car since it’s from the kitchen. Honda was the to install a vacuum cleaner in its own van, and the Chrysler Pacifica followed suit this season. Sure, a portable battery-operated vacuum could do the job, but it is difficult to argue with the bit of convenience afforded through an in-car installation.
9. Stow ’n Go Second- and Third-Row Seats Plans may change at the drop of a hat: You never know if you are going to get to transport an something or other in the last moment. Minivans have difficult-to-remove second-row seats, meaning it is hard to take advantage of their freight places. Over a decade ago, Chrysler came up with a solution named Stow ’n Go, which featured big compartments below the floor into which the next- and – third-row chairs can fold. The compartments can be used for storage, when the chairs aren’t folded flat. The only compromise that is real is that the second-row captain’s chairs are somewhat smaller and more padded than competitors’ seats, meaning that they may not offer as much comfort on a lengthy road trip.
10. Conversation Mirror Today’s three-row crossovers and minivans are certainly not miniature, so kiddos at the second- and third-row chairs are not exactly close at hand. To help keep an eye on what is going on back there, these convex mirrors give the driver a better view of the rear seats and whatever shenanigans might be occuring.
