The Best Family Cars Money Can Buy

There are plenty of great family cars out there, but none offers anything close to the purpose-built practicality of the minivan.

Award Winners

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is this year's Kelley Blue Book Minivan Best Buy, the Toyota Sienna claimed the Kelley Blue Book Best Resale Value Award, and four minivans earned spots on our collection of the 12 Best Family Cars of 2017.

Key Features

Some of the cool features that distinguish today's minivans include chilled compartments to keep drinks cold, Blu-ray players, ultra-widescreen monitors that can display two movies side-by-side, wall-type power outlets and HDMI ports to connect video game consoles.

What's New/Next

Chrysler's Town & Country minivan was so thoroughly reinvented for 2017 that it's now called Pacifica. The 2018 model year brings us an updated Toyota Sienna, but the big story is the totally redesigned 2018 Honda Odyssey that we called the best family car in the world in our first review
