Best Cars for Seniors

November 22, 2021

Here are some things that need to be considered when purchasing a car for a senior:

These features will come in handy for driving safely:

  • Parking cameras + sensors.
  • Blind-spot warning.
  • Forward collision warning.
  • Rear cross-traffic warning.
  • Autonomous emergency braking.
  • Adaptive cruise control.


The car also needs to be an easy drive, it needs to be simple in the interior and the controls need to be easy to use. The car also needs to be easy to get in and out of in case there are any mobility issues. Like anyone of any age, the car should be comfortable and spacious enough for passengers to be able to relax in the car. Here are some cars that meet some of these requirements.

Vauxhall Mokka

The Vauxhall Mokka is spacious and has great visibility. It is also easy to get in and out of because the car is higher up. It is the higher-up version of the Vauxhall Astra as it is the same length and width as the Astra but higher up. The Mokka can have extra add ons to ensure the car is very safe for an elderly person to use, so we are sure the Mokka makes a great car for seniors or just for people who like a comfortable and easy car to drive.

Honda Jazz

The Honda Jazz is a nice sized car, it isn’t too big and it isn’t too small. The Jazz has a lane departure warning which is a great safety feature and we are sure it will give the driver lots of reassurance knowing that there is this helpful safety feature. It also has cruise control, which is ideal for those who like a bit of extra comfort whilst driving. The Honda Jazz isn’t a car that is designed for the elderly, it just happens to be a car that has a good usability and lots of helpful driving features.

Ford EcoSport

The Ford EcoSport shares lots of similarities with the Vauxhall Mokka. It is actually classed as a small SUV, but it isn’t overly bulky. The EcoSport is easy for older people to get in and out of because of its nice height, you do not need to crouch to get in the car. The EcoSport is also affordable, so it is ideal for seniors who do not want to spend lots of money on purchasing a new car. The car also has parking aids, so it is very helpful with assisting with parking and it helps to avoid any nasty hits or damages.

Toyota Yaris

If you are looking for a smaller-sized car, which is still relatively easy to get in and out of then the Toyota Yaris may be the car for you. The Yaris is very easy to drive and it is also very efficient on fuel, so it is ideal for those who do not want to spend lots of money on fuel for their day-to-day journeys. Toyota as a company always manufactures sturdy, easy to use and most importantly reliable cars. Your mind will be at ease if you purchase a Toyota Yaris and it doesn’t only suit the needs of senior citizens, it also suits the needs of practically anyone.

Nissan Juke

The Nissan Juke is a car that is popular with most people. This is because it is stylish, affordable and it is a high-up car with lots of boot space. If you are looking to take lots of road trips in your retirement then the Nissan Juke really could be the car for you. It is packed with technology and comfort and it is even ideal for those who will be ferrying grandchildren around, as the rear passenger space is large enough for children to travel comfortably.

Volkswagen Golf

The Volkswagen Golf suits most people, it is easy to drive, it has lots of fun features and the size of the car is small to medium-sized, so it is very easy to park. Golf really does suit people of all ages, so it is a good choice for people who want an easy run-around car or just for someone who wants a car that is good value for money. Senior cars do not have to be big and bulky, they can also be sleek and sophisticated and even young looking.
