Best Cars for Families
Getting there should be half the fun

If you need a vehicle for you and your family, here are some of the best options on the market: 

Chevrolet Impala - Named a Best Car for the Money and one of the Best Cars for Families by U.S. News & World Report, the Impala is a full-size premium sedan that�s gaining popularity. With your choice of a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine with 22 mpg city and 31 mpg highway or a powerful 3.6-liter V6 that produces 305 hp, you�ll find just what you�re looking for. Other highlights include 18.8 cubic feet of cargo capacity, Chevrolet MyLink with an eight-inch touch screen, Bose Active Noise Cancellation and 4G LTE Wi-Fi from OnStar. All this for an MSRP starting at $27,095 for the 2016 model, making it a great value as well. 

�The 2016 Chevrolet Impala is still one of the stars of the segment � and we think it�s finally worthy of wearing the Impala name that recalls some of the automaker�s most stylish 1960s sedans and coupes,� notes AutoTrader.  

Honda Pilot - In addition to top honors from U.S. News & World Report, which also rated it the top midsize SUV, the newest Honda Pilot was given a 2016 KBB.com Best Buy of the Year award and top scores from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, among only a handful of SUVs to earn the distinction of �Top Safety Pick+.�  

The eight-passenger Pilot is available in five trim levels and has a starting MSRP of $30,345. Even the entry-level LX model comes standard with push-button start, Bluetooth wireless connectivity, a seven-speaker audio system and a multi-angle rearview camera. As you climb through the trim ladder you can add leather seating, ventilated front seats, a rear seat entertainment system and the safety of Honda Sensing that includes adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, road departure mitigation and a collision mitigation braking system.  

�The 2016 Honda Pilot is suddenly one of the best three-row crossovers you can buy. Combining the rarity of a usable third row with luxury levels of quiet and comfort, the Pilot is a win-win for the entire family,� says Left Lane News. 

Toyota Sienna - An MSRP of $28,850 gets you into one of the best minivans on the market. The Sienna, also known as the �swagger wagon,� is more than just a people mover with seating for up to eight. Leather upholstery, a dual-pane moon roof, power sliding doors and tailgate, second-row lounge seating and a dual-view Blu-ray Disc entertainment center with 16.4-inch color display are all available. Flexible seating lets you accommodate a variety of passenger and cargo arrangements with a maximum capacity of 150 cubic feet of cargo space, made even easier with the Split & Stow 3rd Row seat. All models utilize a 3.5-liter V6 engine with 266 hp and 245 pound-feet of torque that brings with it a 3,500-pound towing capacity. And the Sienna is the only minivan on the market available with an all-wheel-drive system. 

�With its accommodating interior, easy manners and stellar reliability record, the 2016 Toyota Sienna remains at the top of the class among minivans. Just off a freshening last year that granted updates inside and out, the Sienna continues to earn its status as an exemplary choice for growing families,� says Kelley Blue Book 

Nissan NV Passenger - For those with larger families, there aren�t many great options if you�re not interested in a large SUV like the Chevrolet Tahoe or Suburban, but the NV Passenger is a great alternative. Starting at an MSRP of $32,810, the NV Passenger has a remarkable 324 seating configurations (with seating for up to 12) and an abundance of features like leather seats, the Nissan Connect system and a rearview monitor.  

The NV Passenger is ready for everything, with 800,000 miles of reliability testing and 7,000 quality and durability tests, backed up by a five-year/100,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty � the best commercial van warranty in America.
