A vehicle is one of the largest purchases a person makes, and it is critical to find the right one for you. To help older drivers know what to look for in a vehicle, AAA worked with the University of Florida Institute for Mobility, Activity, and Participation to help identify smart features for older drivers (SFOD) to optimize their comfort and safety. Use the tool at the bottom of the page to explore these smart features.

Our expert team recommends you consider the following factors when choosing the right vehicle:

  • Safety features, such as seat belts and the positions and types of airbags.
  • Ergonomics, or design features, that reduce operator fatigue and discomfort, such as adjustable pedals and seats.
  • Comfort, such as ease of entry and exit, leg room and size of control buttons.
  • Value, which incorporates the total cost of ownership including price, operating and maintenance costs, as well as reliability, fuel economy and resale value.

In addition, a variety of adaptive features can help compensate for physical changes or simply to make the vehicle fit you more comfortably and safely. Explore these smart features with the tool below.
