Top 5 Cars of 2018 Ranked Best for Senior Drivers

Posted by Ruby Cemental on Jul 24, 2018 5:30:00 PM

Senior_Couple_Car_Driving-LRSeniors are living longer, healthier lives. That means that they are out there driving-running errands, visiting family and friends, vacationing, and more! Seniors not only need a safe car to drive, they also need one that has the types of functions that cater to their needs.

Safety and Comfort Features

Safety and comfort are two features seniors need more than ever when finding the right car to drive. Better visibility and good headlights are two of the first safety features many seniors will be looking for when buying a car. Good visibility allows seniors to be able to see over the front, sides, and back of the car with no issue. The headlights are high-performing models, making it easier for seniors who still drive at night.

Easier front-seat access is one comfort feature seniors need. Physical limitations often keep the elderly from climbing in and out of their car easily. Easy controls are another comfort feature seniors should look for. For example, these vehicles include easy-to- read gauges that seniors can clearly see.

Let's check out the top five vehicles rated for senior citizens in 2018, ranked from least expensive to most expensive.
