Cincinnati, Ohio (PressExposure) March 10, 2011 -- An impressive 85 percent of the automobile purchases in the US are influenced by women. This is especially true in the "Family Car" segment made up of vans and SUVs. But in the past few years, there has been an emerging group of smaller vehicles with family-friendly seating and cargo options that are catching the eye of parents. Multi-activity vehicles, known as MAVs, have flexible seating and cargo options that are ideal for smaller families that want to avoid driving a huge vehicle and the carbon footprint that comes along with it.
The sales staff at Infiniti of Cincinnati is in-tune to the needs of families when it comes to their vehicles. The Infiniti EX, named "Best Car for the Money" by US News magazine, has a multitude of family-friendly features. Reviewers loved the EXs luxurious interior with comfortable and supportive front seats. Also noted were the high-tech features like a hard drive for music and Infiniti's innovative around view system. The Around View System gives driver's a nearly 360-degree view of the area around the EX. Safety features are numerous on Infiniti's MAVs, with standard features including items like lane departure warning, blind spot warning, adaptive cruise control and collision mitigation. The EX also has plenty of cargo space for a small family, with 18.6 cubic feet, expanding to 47.2 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded down.
Cars.com blogger and Mom, Kristin Varela explains that MAVs are generally smaller and more maneuverable with multiple WiFi and connectivity features. Infiniti of Cincinnati knows just how important the family-friendly options are in the EX and FX models. Both MAVs have power folding seats that can be operated from the dash or the rear of the car to eliminate the tug and pull of some folding seats. The rear seats also have the option of a 40/60 split for enlarging cargo space, while still allowing passengers to sit comfortably.
Infiniti vehicles remain some of the best in class when it comes to safety, dependability and re-sale value. The Infiniti EX and FX allow small families to have a stylish ride with all of the necessary features of a family car.
