Moms-to-Be Favor SUVs, Safety Over Style

New moms and moms-to-be favor midsize SUVs in a new study from .

The New and Expecting Moms survey asked thousands of drivers across the country about their preferences on vehicles for new moms.

Study Results

The majority of those polled (32%) say mid-sized SUVs are the best vehicle type for expecting moms, followed by compact cars at 28%. However, most believe that performance and safety rating (34.8%), followed by style and design (31.6%), are more important than space and storage (19.6%) and 3-row seating options (14%). It can be concluded that expecting moms today opt for safety, style, and design of a new vehicle over the practicality of accessibility and space.

Respondents also said safety rating (65.4%) is more important to them than budget or price (34.6%).

When asked which model would make the best vehicle for new or expecting moms, most said Chevy Tahoe (26.9%), followed by Ford Explorer (20.8%), Volkswagen Tiguan (20.4%), Lexus RX (17.7%), and Toyota Sienna (14.2%).

Other Key Findings:
