The minivan is that cramped little representation of hell that no family should ever have to suffer with. Thankfully, those days are gone because cars are bigger and more suited to families than ever before. These are my top five picks for family cars for those who want to avoid the dreaded minivan.
The 2017 Honda Civic makes this list because of its huge cargo space. Everyone knows that families always struggle with finding enough space, especially when going on vacation. This edition of the Honda Civic gives you all the space you could ever need.
Another advantage of the Civic is its optional manual transmission. This makes it perfect for every type of driver who takes the wheel.
Finally, you can’t beat this stylish exterior. You won’t get a look like this with a simple minivan.
Anyone who has ever taken the family off the beaten track knows how important dealing with tough terrain can be. The 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee is engineered with off-road in mind. But unlike other family cars, it doesn’t compromise smooth handling on the road to compensate for that.
You’ll also like the infotainment systems that are guaranteed to make sure you stay connected to civilization. And long drives are a breeze because of the refined cabin in the front and in the back.
The only disadvantage is that the fuel economy isn’t as good as other cars.
The 2017 Mazda CX-5 is a terrific drive that has continued to be at the top of its category year after year. It’s strong and it’s powerful.
But where it really comes into its own is with its suite of safety features. It comes with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warnings, and forward collision warnings to keep your family safe.
The big downside of the minivan is that it can be a nightmare to drive. You try parallel parking with one of those things!
The 2014 Ford Escape is affordable for any family and it rectifies the driving problems you’re used to. Like with most Fords, it has great handling and you can easily accelerate from a standing start so you don’t get stuck at the lights.
And it’s great looks mean that it’s a popular option for families.
The 2017 Chevrolet Cruze gives you a beautiful interior design and makes you feel right at home. Despite these luxury surroundings you’ll never have to pay a lot for it. The Cruze has an extremely low cost of ownership and a relatively moderate depreciation value.
Furthermore, there are plenty of safety features on the car. It carries a terrific safety rating that’s just perfect for anyone who cares about the well-being of their family.
