What's the best set of wheels to buy for your family? A minivan? An SUV? A sedan? A sexy 2-seat Italian sports coupe? We combed the market to find 10 solid family-friendly vehicles that we recommend.
What were our criteria? Of course, we considered room—what good is a family car if it doesn't have space for a family? (Darn, there goes the sexy Italian 2-seater.) But we gave equal weight to other factors as well. Safety was important—every car on this list is an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick or Top Safey Pick+—and we also looked for cars that are affordable to buy and run. Here are the 10 family-friendly vehicles we picked.
