Family-Friendly Rides You Can Trust

Some factors stand above all others when it comes to the ideal vehicle for family duty, like space for passengers and tech designed to keep them safe. Beneath all of that, there’s the underlying expectation that not only will the family car start up properly every day, but also that nothing will fail while driving. 

Reliability is just as important as any other attribute in a good family car. This is especially the case for shoppers who intend to put their car to work for many years. As such, we’ve taken a look at family-friendly segments and compiled a list of winners (one from each class), each of which delivers the best combination of familial capability and predicted reliability.

All U.S. News new car rankings incorporate predicted reliability ratings from J.D. Power, which project the likelihood of repairs needed over time. To generate these ratings, J.D. power annually surveys the original owners of three-year-old vehicles about problems they’ve dealt with during the past 12 months of ownership.

We are constantly updating our rankings with the latest data, so the scores that you see in this slideshow may vary slightly from what you see on our review pages.
