Top Performers From U.S. News' Best 3-Row SUVs for Families Award

Family vehicles have come a long way from the wood-sided station wagon where kids used to ride “in the way back” area, crouched down in the cargo hold. Thank goodness automakers evolved to create more family-friendly vans, cars, and SUVs. The U.S. News & World Report Best Cars for Families awards recognize 18 different automotive classes. The winners reflect the best overall combination of professional automotive reviews, safety and reliability ratings, passenger and cargo space, and features.

3-row SUVs are a family favorite due to their expansive passenger space, generous cargo capacity, and interior technology. Many have up to three complete sets of LATCH car seat connectors, plus tethers, which are essential features for families with small children.
