As the kbb.com editors said, any mom needs a roomy, functional and easy-to-clean car, but for those moments when kids are at school and there’s more time for herself, like shopping or going with a friend for lunch, she’d rather take the keys of a more fancy and fun vehicle. So maybe the best Mom Car is in fact... two cars.
"We know that moms have a tough decision when it comes to car shopping, because they have to consider not just their own needs and wants, but what is practical and best for their family," said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book and kbb.com.
"For this list of 10 Great Mom Cars for Mother's Day 2009, we considered both sides of the debate and decided that mom shouldn't have to settle - there are both functional and fun choices for her out there."
That is how the editors put together a list of five new soccer-mobiles each one of them paired with a more personal escape pod. Find below the five fun and functional pairs presented by kbb.com:
