Here Are the Top Contenders for the U.S. News Best Luxury Compact SUV for Families Award

If you’re a family looking for a new SUV, odds are quality and value are two of your primary criteria. Family vehicles tend to get put through the ringer, and you want to know you’re not going to overpay for features or wind up with something that’s falling apart a few years down the road.

That’s where we come in. In this piece, we’ll list the luxury compact SUVs with the best scores in the U.S. News Best Cars for Families rankings. The ranking is created using a combination of professional automotive reviews, safety and reliability data, seating and cargo volume, and family-oriented features. There are 11 automotive classes covered by the awards, and in each one, the vehicle with the highest composite score is named the Best Car for Families in that category.

Keep in mind that we’re constantly updating scores as new information becomes available, so some scores mentioned in the slideshow might not match the ones in the reviews.
