What BMWs are good family cars?

BMW is a car company that has built its reputation on creating cars which tailor mainly to the driver. The BMWs of the ‘80s and ‘90s even had the center stack placed towards the driver. BMW’s have always been about the way they feel behind the wheel. But the driver isn’t the only person BMW is concerned with. If you are asking yourself what BMWs are good family cars, then you have come to the right place at our Pfaff BMW Markham dealership.

The LATCH system 

The LATCH system uses seatbelt-like anchor connectors on the car seat which plug into LATCH hooks at the bottom of the rear seatbacks. The LATCH hooks are hidden behind little black doors, just flip the doors open and push the anchor connectors inside until they click. Then tighten the straps and the car seat is snug in the rear seat. There’s also a tether system, in which a strap from the car seat can tether to a hook built into the headliner, to keep the seat even more stable in case of a crash. The LATCH system, as well as all of BMW’s active safety systems, proves that BMW can be a very safe and family-friendly brand. 

Not just a luxury car brand anymore 

BMWs have gotten even more family-friendly in the past decade or so, with the introduction of newer models like the X1, X3, and X5. These SUVs blend of performance and practicality airs more on the side of practicality, but haven’t lost that BMW feels. People tend to think of BMWs as performance-oriented luxury cars and don’t realize just how family-friendly they are. Modern BMWs are just as accessible to families as any other brand. With bigger back seats than ever and more cargo space, especially in the SUVs, Modern BMWs can haul kids and all the stuff that comes with them. But more importantly, is how BMWs can carry very young children.
