A quality family car needs to combine practically, safety, and value that stays within your budget. Thankfully it is now easier than ever to choose a car that’s built for your family’s needs.
“As time goes on, sales trends and consumer preferences show that more shoppers are looking to SUVs instead of sedans. That trend has been reflected in this year’s list of Best Family Cars, which doesn’t have a single sedan on the list” says Kelly Blue Book.
“To earn a spot on our annual list of Best Family Cars, there are many qualities and characteristics we consider when naming this year’s family favorites.”
Here is what Kelly Blue Book has chosen for the 11 Best Family Cars of 2019.
Best 2-Row SUVs for Families
“Honda’s well rounded CR-V is safe, reliable, and practical — it’s the complete package. It’s 5-passenger cabin is roomy, practical and technologically sophisticated. Most models come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.”
“All-new for the 2019, the Forester offers comfortable, nicely equipped way to explore the outdoors — or get to your neighborhood coffee house. It has family-focused roominess, cargo carrying, super-smart safety and tech features and capable of achieving as much as 33 mpg on the highway – even with all-wheel drive as a steadfast standard feature.”
Best 3-Row SUVs for Families
“Roomy, versatile and comfortable, the Chevrolet Traverse is the modern-day version of the family station wagon. It has seating up to eight, but not a huge vehicle. It also has 10 cupholders, six USB ports, SmartSlide second-row seats, available collision-avoidance braking, and sporty R6 model now available with V6.”
“Loaded with thoughtful features and clever storage solutions, the Honda Pilot is as nearly as versatile as a minivan, and is our Midsize SUB Best Buy of 2019. It has standard seating for eight with seven passenger setup optional, HondaSensing suite of safety and driver assist features, and a slew of features aimed to make transporting the kids safer and less stressful.”
“Subaru’s foray into the 3-row midsize SUV segment offers the practicality, space and features a family wants, while retaining Subaru character and spirit. It is also the biggest Subaru ever, with seating for seven or eight people. It offers sliding, adjustable second row, EyeSight Driver Assist, and spacious, versatile interior.”
“It may be a little older than the other SUVs in this group, but the Highlander remains a reliable, functional, financially savvy choice. Seats seven or eight people, excellent fuel-efficient choices, high emphasis on safety and KBB 2019 Best Resale Value Award winner.”
“Volkswagen’s 3-row Atlas offers the most room, as well as the best warranty of the group. It offers European touches in styling and driving and also a 6-year/72,000-mile transferable bumper-to-bumper warranty.”
Best Full-Size SUVs for Families
“The Expedition has the best third row, the best interior, and the best driving manners in the segment. It’s a tough body-on-frame truck that tows well that can hold seven or eight people with a plush ride. Excellent connectivity, good fuel economy and available adaptive cruise control are just a few of the features this Ford offers.”
Best Minivans for Families
“The Chrysler Pacifica is a pleasure to drive, is packed with class-leading technology and is the only minivan available as hybrid. It’s comfortable and easy to drive, has well-appointed interior and flexible Stow n’ Go seating.”
“Still the benchmark among minivans, we called the Honda Odyssey the best family car in the world and named it our Minivan Best Buy of 2019. Most models include HondaSensing suit of safety systems. It’s features range from in-vehicle vacuum cleaner to in-car camera monitoring system. It also has an excellent resale value and penchant for reliability.”
“The aging but proven Sienna continues to be a terrific family hauler, and remains the only minivan available with all-wheel drive. It also has excellent resale value, plant of convenience features, long list of standard safety features and is dependable.”
