These Vehicles Are Great for Senior Drivers

Drivers who are older should consider a few crucial questions before purchasing a vehicle: Is the car easy to get in and out of? How lengthy is the vehicle's list of safety technology? Are the infotainment and climate controls user friendly? Does the vehicle have good visibility? By asking these questions, older folks should have a good idea of what vehicles will suit them the best.  

But just to make it easier, we've compiled a wide range of vehicles – from the Honda Fit (a roomy subcompact car) to the brand-new Kia Telluride (a 3-row midsize SUV) to the Honda Odyssey (a minivan) to the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid (a hybrid SUV with improved efficiency) – that are suitable for seniors. 

That list of vehicles offers many safety aids, like lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, and pedestrian detection to help you navigate the road ahead. Plus, they provide good visibility, a group of easy-to-use features, and large doors that make it easy to enter and exit the vehicles.

The following slides list 15 of the best cars for older drivers. Keep in mind that the scores on our site are constantly updated as new models are introduced and data becomes available. Consequently, the scores mentioned in this slideshow may not match the scores in our reviews.
