If you’re thinking of buying Mom a minivan this weekend for Mother’s Day, you should think again. Last year, TrueCar.com released their list of the 10 Most Popular Cars for Moms, and believe it or not, only one minivan made that list.
In the top 10 mom car, Honda had five vehicles and Nissan was right behind with three. Picking up the last two spots were Volkswagen and Subaru.
Here’s what you should be buying Mom this Mother’s Day:
- Honda CR-V
- Nissan Altima
- Honda Odyssey
- Subaru Outback
- Honda Pilot
- Volkswagen Jetta
- Nissan Rogue
- Honda Accord
- Honda Civic
- Nissan Sentra
When transporting their families, moms have specific needs but they are not willing to sacrifice practicality or style just because they have children. “Moms are definitely value-oriented when it comes to choosing their family car,” said Kristen Andersson, Senior Analyst at TrueCar.com. “Most of the cars are priced below $30,000, with a few right around $20,000.”
However, the picture changes slightly if a few kids are added into the equation. If moms have two or more children, the Honda Odyssey takes the number one spot and the top five are full of sedans and crossovers.
Today’s mom wants something that isn’t the typical mommy-mobile, so significant others should keep this is mind if they’re planning on buying a new set of wheels for this Mother’s Day.
