This one goes out to all of the new parents in the greater Atlanta area, and parents-to-be. Because perhaps the most important thing to you, is how effective your mode of transportation is at keeping your little ones safe. Often times, the immediateassumption is that a minivan or wagon is your best option. Jim Ellis Audi is happy to reassure you, this simply isn't so. One luxury sedan alternative is the 2013 Audi A4.
Kicking Tires recently performed a car seat test in the new Audi A4, using a rear-racing, infant-safety seat and high-back booster seat by Graco and a convertible child-safety seat by Britax. Here's what they had to say:
On the rear-facing infant-safety
seat - The car seats both fit in the back properly, leaving the front passenger with plenty of leg room still.
On the booster seat- Kicking Tires credits a secure fit to the sedan's bolstered seats and the positioning of the seat belt buckles.
On the convertible seat - Forward- and rear facing convertible seats are reported to have fit quite well. "There was tons of room for the rear-facing car seat, and we didn't have to move the front passenger seat forward to get it to fit," explain the editors.
How many car seats was Kicking Tires able to fit in the second row, total?
Two? As long as you're not planning to have triplets, or three kids in a row, you should be good to go.
To learn more about the A4 sedan's less-practical sides, contact Jim Ellis Audi today online or give us a call. Or, better yet, drop by 5901 Peachtree Industry Blvd and get to know them in person. Who says wise choices can't also be fun?
