The family cars need to be spacious and must have the required safety features. Such cars are expected to have a good fuel economy. There are however, many other features which can be found in these cars. These are complete cars, not meant for any single purpose (sports, luxury, etc). The designing and overall development of family cars is therefore, carried out, taking into account a variety of features. Let us obtain information about the best family cars.
2011 Volkswagen Golf
Fair Purchase Price: $ 18,390
It may not seem an obvious family car to most Americans, but the editors at KBB.com point out that in Europe wagons and hatchbacks are as popular as sedans in the United States, making the Volkswagen Golf as much a family car as the Toyota Camry. Considering its low starting price, hatchback versatility, true European driving dynamics and a stylish interior, many families will find the 2011 Volkswagen Golf practical, affordable and fun choice for a family car.
2011 Kia Sorento
Fair Purchase Price: $ 20,478
The 2011 Kia Sorento ranks high in a category Kelley calls "the two-and-a-half-row segment." For drivers who don't use the third row on a daily basis and don't plan to put adults in the "way-back," the 2011 Kia Sorento is a "more affordable, more fuel-efficient, more maneuverable alternative." It's got ride, handling and interior appeal, all of which combined to get it on this list of Top 10 Family Cars.
2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Fair Purchase Price: $ 29,445
The 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a five-seater traditional SUV, and is as rugged as is expected from the name, but with finer details like a 5-inch longer wheel base (shared with the next-generation Mercedes-Benz ML electronic gadgets). It’s also got a power rear lift gate and a blind spot warning system. The recently redesigned fourth-generation Grand Cherokee is still more than competent for off-roading, but also improved for city driving. The editors at KBB take note that its “elevated level of refinement—most noticeable in its well-appointed cabin—propel Jeep’s flagship to new levels of excellence.”
2011 Hyundai Sonata
Fair Purchase Price: $ 20,145
This mid-size sedan makes it onto the list due to its mix of style, quality and value. The Hyundai Sonata, brand-new for 2011, is packed with safety features, has a superior warranty, and is also available as a hybrid model. For drivers who need to transition from parent to professional and back again in one day with one car, the 2011 Hyundai Sonata tech gadgets are an easy choice.
2011 Honda Odyssey
Fair Purchase Price: $ 26,980
Dubbed by Kelley's Blue Book editors as the "gold standard of minivans," the Honda Odyssey is a natural pick for this list of family vehicles. The 2011 Honda Odyssey is designed for surprisingly responsive handling and maintaining a comfortable highway ride. The kids won't notice either way, though, because the extra-wide 16-inch rear video display can serve as two side-by-side monitors and show two movies at once.
