Kelley Blue Book has revealed the names of its Best Family Cars for 2021 in the categories of Best Two-Row SUVs for Families, Best Three-Row SUVs for Families, Best Full-Size SUVs for Families, and Best Minivans.
“When it comes to buying a car for a new or growing family, parents understandably want assurance that their vehicle has outstanding safety and technology features to help protect their precious cargo,” said Matt DeLorenzo, senior managing editor for Kelley Blue Book.
DeLorenzo said budget factors are also top-of-mind for families, which is why KBB placed a heavy emphasis on overall value — including purchase and ownership costs — through Kelley Blue Book’s Fair Purchase Price and 5-Year Cost to Own information.
Each category includes two to four model winners, listed in alphabetical order. KBB’s editorial staff reviews the newest cars on the market and evaluates options through a variety of lenses. They also use data from the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) to ensure the vehicles they recommend have top safety ratings.
