These Family Sedans Make Road Trips and Commuting Fun

A family car that’s fast is sometimes known by another name: sleeper. It’s the sort of car that looks like any old family hauler but has a powerful secret under the hood.

Some of the cars in this list fit that description, while others are basically just four-door muscle cars that advertise their performance ambitions with aggressive styling and badging. If it has been a while since you looked for a new family car, you may be surprised by how many of them can be had with engines making 500, 600, or even 700 horsepower. It is not uncommon to see even the base models of contemporary family cars making 300 horsepower or more.

You’ll find in this list a wide range of midsize and large sedans, with pricing that ranges from the affordable to the exclusive, and everywhere in between. Regardless of your budget, it’s clear that in 2017, you don’t have to sacrifice cargo or comfort in order to satisfy your lead foot.
