It is no secret that Moms (and Dads) are in their cars so much they feel like their car has become their second home. Driving around Louisville for soccer games at King Louie’s, driving over the toll bridge for work, and to the not-so-glorious shopping trips around town, you’re in your vehicle a lot.
So, the question then arises, what car is going to be the most comfortable for those long days?
We took a look at Chevrolet’s incredible lineup and broke down what we think are the best mom cars with the large hauling capacity for people and the anything else that comes your way.
Here are our picks for the best mom cars:
Let’s face it, when you think of the classic soccer mom, chances are you picture her driving a Suburban. The features that the Suburban offers are enough to provide comforts of home, even while you are on the road. Whether you are going on a local trip to the Falls of the Ohio or dropping off the kids for a Scout camping trip at Shelby Park in Louisville, the Suburban has the trunk space as well as the people space for a large group to explore the local nature.
With built-in WiFi capabilities and a center console large enough for a laptop, your car can be a mobile office or to keep your passengers entertained with no problem. Learn more about Chevy WiFi by checking out our blog. The Suburban entertainment package also includes a screen for each row, so you would not have to worry about kiddos not being able to see the movie in the back row. This is dream-worthy if you are making the long road trip to the beach or the shorter trip to Lake Cumberland.

The Tahoe is the Suburban’s little brother, but don’t discount the capabilities of this SUV. It has the same features like the Apple Car Play and Android Auto. So, if you’re about to go out tailgating for a game at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium or just one for your kid’s game, then check out our Chevy Tahoe Tailgating Spotify playlist!
With virtually the same features as the Suburban, from the available WiFi to the safety features, the Tahoe is a good choice for those who still want to seat up to 9 people, but are intimidated by the size. Chevy’s reduction of 2 cubic feet of the Suburban in making the Tahoe helps drivers feel more confident in its size. The reduction of the price tag helps as well!
Despite the shorter length, the Tahoes are able to pull boats or trailers well up to 8,600 pounds—a task that usually requires a truck — perfect if you’re looking at a weekend trip at Taylorsville Lake! We are especially in love with such great (and mind-easing) safety tech features like Lane Keep Assist, which can help keep drivers stay steady. Also, the OnStar Remote Link allows you to seek help or even start your vehicle remotely.
This mid-sized SUV is an absolute contender for the best mom car, it has the ability to seat 8 passengers. With three rows, there is still enough space to take extra kids with you for ice cream out after the ball game. WiFi is an available feature as well as an available entertainment package robust enough to keep the natives occupied. Be sure to keep your eye out for the brand new body style for 2018 – the new Traverse is sure to please!
Here are some other features that might make every mom sigh with relief:
- Power-Remote Liftgate – With a simple push of a button, the available power-remote liftgate makes loading and unloading a breeze.
- Smart Slide – The Smart Slide second-row seating allows easy access to the third row.
- Unconventional Storage – Available sliding armrest with storage.
- Cargo Space – The Chevy Traverse boasts 116 cubic feet of cargo space.
- Tailering – When properly equipped, the Traverse is rated for 5,200-lb. trailering.
