Dog-friendly cars: what to go for

Over the past few weeks, Oracle has welcomed a host of canine colleagues to the office – a real crowd-pleaser for the team and our social media followers!

This got us thinking about ‘dog-friendly’ cars – with so many of our staff and customers having pampered pooches, it seems like a helpful shortlist is long overdue.

So we’ve considered boot space, practicality and styles to help you narrow down some options for dog friendly driving.

Mercedes E-Class Estate

With a top speed of 146mph, this one is perfect if you want to quickly pop to the seaside for a dog walk on the beach! The Mercedes E-Class Estate is one of our favourite dog-friendly cars and has a boot space of 640 litres with the seats up and 1820 litres with the seats down, so whether you have a Miniature Dachshund or an Alsatian, the E-Class is a great option.

Jaguar F-PACE

Not only does the Jaguar SUV have 650-litre boot space, but it’s compatible with a whole range of dog-friendly accessories. The Jaguar Pet-Pack has been designed to protect the interior of your car so you can “focus on enjoying the moment rather than worrying about the journey home”.

Audi A4 Avant

The A4 Avant is perfect for smaller dogs, with low-level access. It’s also compatible with Audi accessories designed specifically for your pup. This includes dog seatbelts, luggage compartment lining and protective covers for the back seats. The perfect ‘dog-proof’ vehicle!

Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV

The SUV with stylish interior allows you to have a bigger dog in tow while still owning a luxury car. The GLC SUV has a 550-litre boot space increasing to 1600-litre with the seats down and it’s been described as “spacious in every sense”. This high-tech vehicle is also compatible with Apple Music. Hey Siri, play ‘Who Let the Dogs Out!’

Range Rover Sport

It’s no secret that the Range Rover Sport is huge, and great if you’re lucky enough to have more than one canine! In August 2018, Land Rover launched a new range of premium Pet Packs “to make car journeys even more comfortable for dogs”. The packs include a spill-resistant water bowl, access ramp, foldable pet carrier, tailored quilted load space liner and portable rinse system.

If you have a dog, get in touch and let us know what would be on your shortlist.
