Kelley Blue Book Names Best Family Cars of 2019
March 26, 2019—Kelley Blue Book announced the Best Family Cars of 2019. This list has been developed following in-depth testing and a thorough review of 2019 model-year vehicles with a focus on safety, overall value, driver-assist features, connectivity and technology.
"With families filling their after-school hours and weekends with activities, they not only transport their own family, but load up their cars with friends and gear as well," said Matt DeLorenzo, senior managing editor for Kelley Blue Book. "We have seen an uptick in the number of consumers seeking advanced safety features as their top priority when searching for a new car. Adaptive headlights, rear cross-traffic alerts and automatic emergency braking are just a few standout advanced safety features that once were only available as options on luxury vehicles, but now are standard on vehicles that have a MSRP of less than $30,000 – some of which are reflected in this year's list."
