There are over millions of drivers over 65 in the U.S. They all face different challenges with cars than younger drivers. They need something that’s accessible, comfortable and easy to drive. They also need easy-to-use tech and safety equipment. Every Chevy has all of that and more. Here’s why it’s the best car brand for seniors:
Many older drivers have a hard time squatting and moving sideways to get into a car. Fortunately, every Chevy has a low step-in height, a tall roofline, and wide doors. And they all have available leather seats, which are easier to slide into.
Once you’re in a car, you need to be able to see well from all sides. Chevys have big windows and a back-up camera. So you’ll know if there are any cars around you when you’re backing out of a driveway, changing lanes on a highway, and more.
You want to be as comfortable as possible so you don’t get sore or fatigued on the road. All Chevy seats are incredibly cushioned and supportive. The driver’s seat adjusts multiple ways to meet your perfect comfort level. You also get heated seats, a heated steering wheel, and dual- or tri-zone climate control. Warmth is great for people with stiff hips, lower back pain, or cold sensitivity.
You might need to hall a walker or scooter. So you need plenty of room in the back of your car. Every Chevy has a fold-down rear seat for optimal hauling space. The power liftgate on SUVs keeps you from having to manually open and shut the trunk door. It closes with the push of a button or with a wave of your foot under the rear bumper.
All Chevys have a large, easy-to-read driver information center. That’s where you can check your speed, how much gas you have, and more. The infotainment system is also bright and easy to read. And most models have controls for changing the radio station and adjusting the volume. There’s even hands-free texting and calling. You can set one or more temperatures in the cabin with no issue. And push button start is the most convenient way to turn the car on and off.
Advanced Safety Equipment
Senior citizens always want to be protected on the road. And they sometimes need their car to be their eyes and ears. Any Chevy can help with that with the back-up camera, following distance indicator, automatic emergency braking, and lane change alert. There’s also lane keep assist with lane departure warning, rear cross traffic alert, and rear park assist. And the LATCH system is perfect for driving with grandkids in carseats or booster seats.
