6 Cars Perfect for Family Road Trips

08/09/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

This summer, lots of families are taking to the highways for a long vacation. And hopefully that means they’re riding around in a comfortable vehicle (think roomy interior, lots of storage and plenty of cupholders).

But that isn’t the only thing to consider. You also want a car that gets good mileage and has enough power to get you to each destination smoothly.

To find out which models really fit the bill, we asked Jennifer Newman, mom and senior editor for Cars.com, for her recommendations.

Check them out below.

We Tried It: BabyBjörn Travel Crib Light

We Tried It: BabyBjörn Travel Crib Light

Who tried it: Rennie Dyball, senior editor

Why she did it: I’ve heard many raves about this travel crib, so with a beach trip on the itinerary, I wanted to see what all the fuss was about.

Pros: From opening the box to sitting my daughter down inside this newest version of BabyBjörn’s crib/play yard took all of two minutes. Seriously.

To borrow an Apple buzzword, the setup was completely “intuitive,” and the mini crib sheets I had in the closet from her daycare days fit the mattress perfectly. At 13 lbs., the Travel Crib Light lives up to its name, and it folds up almost impossibly small into its own carrying case. What more could you want for travel?

Hitting the road this spring or summer?

Evenflo has launched a new Platinum collection of car seats — the Symphony DLX, Symphony LX, SecureKid DLX and Triumph LX — that will make traveling with your tot a whole lot more comfortable.

Each car seat features NASA-developed temperature regulating fabrics in the padding that are designed to keep babies and toddlers comfortable during both hot and cold weather.

Essentially, the fabric absorbs and stores hot and cold temperatures and then releases them when needed. It also helps reduce perspiration so your child stays drier.

Another cool feature? Buckle pockets, which allow moms to tuck the buckle straps away, making it easier to get babies in and out of the seat.

When you first bring home that snuggly new addition to your family, it’s easy to feel like you’re never going to be able to leave.

With round-the-clock feedings, diaper changes and (futile) attempts at sleep, the idea of getting out of the house can seem like the most daunting task of all.

But as I bumble my way through first-time motherhood, I’ve discovered that resuming even a semblance of my pre-baby life and getting out and about with my little one in tow — whether just out for a walk or flying to Florida — is the key to my sanity. Or what’s left of it, anyway!

Here are some of my favorite products to help new moms brave the big, bad world outside the home.

After welcoming her first child, Rachel Blumenthal realized that no one person could realistically sift through the thousands (literally!) of baby products on the market.
