Autobytel® Recommends Best Cars For Mothers

Stocks in this article: ABTL

Not all mothers are created equal, and with Mother’s Day around the corner, family members are searching for the perfect gift to celebrate the special mom in their life. Considering a car for your mom or want to recommend her perfect next vehicle? The editors at know that car shopping for mom can be tricky and they have created their list of choices to satisfy mothers of any type. Whether your mom is elegant, a business woman, an outdoor girl or cleverly chic, Autobytel has you covered.

Ranging in choice from the Hyundai Genesis to the Buick Regal GS, Autobytel’s editors have carefully chosen a wide array of vehicles to match the needs of any mother. Some choices might seem predictable, but there are also some surprises.

For the artistic mother who has a budding artist in tow, Autobytel suggests the 2012 Dodge Durango. The Durango boasts plenty of backseat space and a cargo area where paintings can be laid out, not to mention the extra bonus storage space under the passenger’s seat. Is your mother all about style and luxury? Why not indulge her with the 2012 Cadillac CTS Wagon which won Autobytel’s 2012 Wagon of the Year award. With room for five and plenty of room for stowing her treasures, the Cadillac CTS Wagon is the one accessory she’ll never leave home without. Looking for something more economical? Autobytel’s choices for the thrifty moms are the lower priced gas savers that can still carry at least a couple of kids and a bevvy of shopping finds. Starting under $11,000, the 2012 Nissan Versa leads Autobytel’s list for Thrifty Moms with great fuel economy and lots of legroom.

Autobytel Editor-in-Chief Michelle Naranjo explained, “While we know that the modern mom cannot be stereotyped by a single trait, we thought that it’d be fun to match some cars with some of the personality aspects that are just a part of the busy, multi-talented mothers of today.”
