April 3, 2019—PARENTS revealed the 10 Best Family Cars of 2019. As a reliable resource for car shoppers, PARENTS started with 30 minivans and SUVs that passed government safety tests with flying colors and provide good value. A child passenger safety technician installed multiple car seats in each, and a mom mechanic weighed in about gas mileage, maintenance costs, and high-tech driving features.

To determine the 10 winners, PARENTS also looked at family-friendly elements, such as entertainment systems and the number and placement of cup-holders.

"Second to the home, the car is at the center of our parenting universe," said Liz Vaccariello, editor-in-chief of PARENTS. "Moms and dads need a vehicle that can handle their squad and haul all of their stuff. In developing this list, we wanted to evaluate what's important to families at a level that exceeds other car rankings. This meant understanding the fundamental features needed in a vehicle, while also keeping in-car entertainment, and of course, safety top of mind." 

According to PARENTS, the 10 Best Family Cars of 2019 are:


  • Honda Odyssey 
  • Toyota Sienna 
  • Kia Sedona 


  • Nissan Pathfinder
  • Honda Pilot 
  • Volkswagen Atlas
  • Subaru Ascent 


  • GMC Terrain
  • Subaru Forester 
  • Ford Escape
