When you have a family, you need a family vehicle that is going to accommodate everyone, including little ones in car seats. The 2017 GMC Acadia is on the Car Seat Check Honor Roll. There are only six cars that have made this very coveted Cars.com award. Cars.com tested 2016 and 2017 models to see which worked best for car-seat installation.
The Redesigned 2017 GMC Acadia Scores
The GMC Acadia was redesigned for 2017. The fact that the Acadia did so well in the car seat check was surprising because the vehicle actually shrunk in size compared to the 2016 model. It is 7 inches shorter and has lost 3 inches in width. Despite this reduction in size, the vehicle earned the top grade of A in all categories. While it is no longer a full-size SUV, it comes with two or three rows, and families are able to travel in comfort. Here were the categories in which it was tested:
- Latch system
- Infant seat compatibility
- Rear-facing convertible car seat compatibility
- Forward-facing convertible car seat compatibility
- Booster seat compatibility
- Ease of third-row access
A Family-Oriented Vehicle
When you have kids, there is no doubt that you want a vehicle with good crash test ratings and the ability to keep car seats snug so that what you love most is protected. Factor in that the Acadia earned its place on the Car Seat Check Honor Roll and you have a great vehicle. When you need a vehicle with third-row seating, you need that ease of access, especially when you may have more than two children needing seats. It’s all about family, and that is something that was kept in mind when the Acadia was designed. At McKenzie Motors in Milton, Florida, we understand your concerns and will show you exactly how the 2017 GMC Acadia will keep your little ones safe while on the road.
