The Best Family Cars For 2015

When you’re travelling with precious cargo, it pays to have the best. A car meant for the use of families should not only deliver good performance and fuel economy but also be safe, comfortable, reliable, and versatile. If you’re planning to get a car for your family, here are some of the best family car picks for 2015.
For big families
Families comprised of several members need a car that can comfortably seat passengers and have enough space for their stuff as well. For big families, recommended models include minivans, SUVs, crossovers, and station wagons.
Hyundai Santa Fe – the Santa Fe has three rows and a low step-in height that enables kids to climb in the car easily. Installing child-safety seats is also a breeze, plus it comes with a multimedia system that can help your keep children entertained on long trips.
Nissan Quest – the minivan has been the quintessential family car for decades, but its popularity waned when families started looking for a vehicle that doesn’t scream “I’m a soccer mom!” The Nissan Quest is undoubtedly the car that brings prodigal minivan lovers back into the fold, with its funky styling and spacious, crossover-looking interiors.
Other cars to consider for big families are the Acura MDX crossover, the Buick Enclave crossover, the Chevrolet Traverse SUV, the Dodge Durango SUV, the Honda Odyssey minivan, the Toyota Highlander SUV, and the Toyota Sienna minivan. The Sienna is the only minivan with all-wheel drive.
For small families
Small families can ride big cars too, so for this list we will consider SUVs, minivans, and station wagons along with sedans and hatchbacks.
Kia Soul – for the budget-conscious family, the Kia Soul definitely offers the best in savings. The 2015 Kia Soul is a five-seat compact hatchback that you can have for as low as $15,900.
Hyundai Santa Fe Sport – Hyundai is truly making waves in the automotive industry due to its impressive aesthetics and awesome features. The Sport variant offers families plenty of space at the backseat and the cargo area, perfect for long road trips.
Other cars to consider for small families are the Chevrolet Equinox, the Chevrolet Impala, the Mazda CX-5, the Nissan Rogue, the Subaru Forester, the Chevrolet Malibu, the Subaru Impreza, the Volkswagen Passat, and the Toyota Prius hatchback.
Categorically speaking
The popular automotive magazine Car and Driver has listed down their editors’ top choices for the best cars for 2015. Families can also cross-reference their preferences with this list, which is divided into vehicle categories. In the small crossover/SUV category, the Nissan Juke gets the top spot. Its luxury equivalent is the BMW X1. As for compact crossovers or SUVs, the editors chose a number of recommended cars, including the Mazda CX-5, Jeep Cherokee, and the Kia Sportage.
The Car and Driver editors picked out three of what they consider to be the best family sedans in the market today. These are the Volkswagen Passat, Mazda 6, and the Honda Accord. For eco-conscious families, suggested models are Toyota’s Prius, Ford’s C-Max, and Chevrolet’s Volt for the hybrid category and the Chevrolet Spark EV and the Fiat 500E for the electric category.
