9 Best Cars for Dog Lovers, According to AutoTrader

Posted by: Casey O'Connell

Whether or not this holds true for you, many dog owners take their furry friends into account when making decisions about which car to purchase. In light of #NationalDogDay, Autotrader compiled a list of the “Best Cars for Dog Lovers” based on comfort and convenience features for both humans and their four-legged friends. Here are the vehicles that made the cut:

  • Audi allroad
  • Ford Edge
  • Honda Fit
  • Jeep Renegade
  • Kia Sedona
  • Lincoln MKC
  • Mazda3
  • Mercedes-Benz GLA
  • Subaru XV Crossstrek

Also included in the announcement are some safety tips to consider when traveling with your beloved pet, including:

  • When in a car, dogs should be secured with a harness/restraint, to protect the pet, prevent them from distracting the driver, and for the safety of the other people in the vehicle.
  • Small dogs and cats can ride in a secured pet carrier to keep them safe and to prevent them from getting around the driver's feet.
  • Pets should not ride in the front seat in a vehicle, as they could be severely injured by the windshield or the airbags in an accident.
  • Dogs seem to love to ride with their heads out the window, but it's safest not to allow them to. Bugs, rocks or flying debris can hurt their eyes or ears.
  • The back of a pick-up truck is never a safe place for a pet to ride.
