SUV Fun for the Family on a Budget

For many, the minivan is the ideal family vehicle. It has three rows and plenty of space for people and gear. But many families have needs that go beyond the capabilities of minivans. Be it driving off the beaten path or handling tough winters, some families need SUVs.

Luckily for those families, there are plenty of SUVs that offer three rows of spacious seating and modern, family-friendly features like the 2019 Ford Flex (pictured above). This means seats that easily fold away, a plethora of cupholders and cubbies, and the latest infotainment and entertainment technology.
