U.S. News & World Report’s 2020 Best Cars for Families Are Here

You have a lot of choices if you’re buying a new family car, but they’re not all created equal. Automakers may advertise a host of features that will keep everyone in your family happy, but finding the right mix of comfort, technology and safety requires more research than you might think. Your list of needs could include everything from comfortable rear seats, to ample cargo space for a stroller or wheelchair. You might also want plenty of active safety tech and the latest teen driver features, especially if there’s a new driver in your family. We’ve tested plenty of cars and SUVs at U.S. News & World Report. While many of them seem poised for family duty, some still fall short when it’s your turn to handle the weekly carpool or load up for a summer vacation. 

Our Best Cars for Families awards are designed to take the guesswork out of your family car shopping journey. We’ve identified nine award winners that offer the best combination of family-friendly features, safety ratings, predicted reliability, and passenger and cargo space. A particular highlight is our analysis of family-friendly features, which includes more than just a Wi-Fi hot spot or a rear-seat entertainment system. We also look for cars that provide the best mix of driver assistance features, rear-seat monitoring and teen driver controls. After all, the best car for your family should help you avoid accidents, encourage good driving habits and keep the youngest passengers safe. The winners of our 2020 Best Cars for Families awards will keep you and your family comfortable, secure and connected, regardless of which stage of life they are in. Let’s take a look at the winners.
