Five new car features that make family life easier

When you have kids, life can be very busy and taking everyone out for a ride in the car – no matter if it’s a long-distance trip or a quick trip to the shops – can be challenging and stressful.

StreetFleet has listed five great new car features that every parent should know about and that will make life just a little bit easier.

An integrated two-stage booster seats

This feature is available across a range of models including the XC60 and XC90.



Hands-free tailgate
