Kelley makes its picks — Best Family Cars for 2020

(March 25, 2020) IRVINE, Calif. — There is perhaps no stage in life when one carefully considers a new-vehicle purchase more than during the family years. With varying family sizes, needs and budgets to consider, and with many now with many people car shopping from home, the experts at Kelley Blue Book provide new-car buyers with their top recommendations for the Best Family Cars of 2020.

To help parents narrow down their choices for their next family hauler, this annual list was developed following in-depth testing and a thorough review of 2020 model-year vehicles with a focus on safety, overall value, driver-assist features, connectivity, and technology.

Toyota, Hyundai and Honda each had two vehicles on the list.

Kelley considered only SUVs, crossovers and minivans in its family hauler ratings. Mid-sized and full-sized sedans were not considered.

“Families rely on their vehicles not only as a mode of transportation but often as a key part of their day-to-day lifestyle,” said Michael Harley, executive editor for Kelley Blue Book.

“Vehicle technology is evolving at a rapid pace, and many of the SUVs and minivans featured on this list are true tech standouts from both safety and convenience perspectives, while also minding the family budget. A few brand-new entries from Korean automakers made the cut this year, along with several mainstays that consistently rise to the top when compiling the Best Family Cars list. There is something for everyone, no matter the size of your family or your price range.”
