2013 List Features a Vehicle for Every Budget, Including Crossovers, SUVs and Hybrid

Parents Magazine and, the premier online resource for car shopping, today revealed their list of 2013’s 10 Best Family Cars. For the sixth consecutive year, car experts from both organizations examined hundreds of vehicles to offer a list of best-in-class vehicles.

“With summer road trips on the horizon, we are thrilled to present this comprehensive list,” said Parents magazine Editor-in-Chief Dana Points. “Given the amount of time that American families spend in their car, we feel it’s important to highlight the safest, most affordable and family-friendliest that the industry has to offer.”

In 2013, the panel of judges focused on safety; each car on the list excels in crash tests and comes equipped with at least six airbags, as well as electronic stability control. The judges also considered updated fuel-efficiency technology, in addition to next-generation dashboards that allow consumers to customize infotainment options on the go. In addition, The 10 Best Family Cars for 2013 includes several stylish rides that young parents will be proud to show off.

“As a father who loves to drive, I can appreciate all the variables that parents take into account when shopping for a new car,” said Editor-in-Chief Scott Oldham. “This list shows off some of the year’s best choices for the everyday carpool and the family road trip.”
