As the family grows you will probably look at your options on what you can get them around in. The good thing is that there is now a wide range of cars available on the market, including medium to large SUVs, mini vans and people movers that can seat up to 8 people.
The vehicles vary from front wheel drives and rear wheel drives to all wheel drives and 4 wheel drives - a bit confusing. Basically, all wheel drives and 4 wheel drives can offer added power and safety as all 4 wheels are being used to move the car. Whether you need a 4 wheel drive will depend on how you intend to use the car. For example, if off-roading is going to be something that you do on a regular basis then a 4 wheel drive could be your most suitable option.
