One of the best things we see on the road is drivers traveling with their pets. At our Lexus dealership near Amelia Island, FL, we enjoy helping pet parents find a pet-friendly, luxury vehicle that suits their needs best. When you look through the new Lexus cars in our showroom, you’ll see that we have plenty of premium vehicles your pets will love as much as you do.

While you may know you want a pet-friendly car, you might not be sure what to look for. Here are some of the things many motorists look for when they’re shopping for an automobile that their pets will be comfortable in:

  • Liftgate or Sliding Door: Having a liftgate or sliding door is particularly important for people who have large dogs and drivers whose dogs travel in larger carriers or crates. Our Lexus SUVs feature a liftgate that makes it easy for dogs of all sizes to get in and out of a vehicle. It also makes loading and unloading crates much less of a hassle.
  • Generous Rear Legroom: Although it may seem silly to consider a car’s rear legroom when you’re looking for a pet-friendly automobile, it’s actually an important consideration. Not only does it help them enter and exit the vehicle, but it also provides them more room.
  • Rear Vents: It’s important for you to maintain a comfortable cabin temperature when you travel with your furry family members. If your car is equipped with rear vents or rear climate control, it will be much easier for you to keep your pets at an adequate comfort level—especially in the midst of summer.

If you want a luxury vehicle that’s truly pet friendly, visit Lexus of Jacksonville to find one today! We look forward to helping you out.
