Here are top 5 best cars for senior drivers in the Philippines.

According to results of several surveys across the country, older people tend to seek for vehicles featuring:

1. Easy access

Older people tend to seek for vehicles which are easy to get in and out

For the seniors, this is an essential prerequisite when buying a car. Accordingly, they often opt for cars with medium ground clearance at the front-seat access, which is not so high that they are forced to climb up to get inside but not so low that they have to bend down.

2. Good visibility

There is a simple fact of life: the driving ability of the seniors is not as good as that of younger drivers. So, they would be into vehicles in which they can see easily and clearly out of the front, back and side windows no matter how tall they are.

3. Intense headlights

Senior drivers like strong and bright headlamps

How can the headlights light up the road ahead? This is a frequently-asked question by older drivers before test driving a car. They like strong and bright lamps since it might be difficult for them to see without adequate light on night roads.

4. Simple controls

Best cars for older drivers should have simple controls and legible analog gauges.
