Editors Recommend Variety of Family-Friendly New Cars to Meet the Diverse Needs of Today's Families

IRVINE, CA--May 16, 2013:  Families in the market for a new car can see which models the experts recommend most in the list of 10 Best Family Cars of 2013 by the editors of Kelley Blue Book www.kbb.com.  All families are not created alike, so it stands to reason that all family cars shouldn't be alike either.  Each year the KBB.com editors decide the 10 Best Family Cars, which cater to unique family specifications and situations. 

"Show us 10 families and we'll suggest a different car for each, but all of those vehicles will score high in areas like safety, roominess, comfort and value," said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com. "Our annual list is aimed at helping families find the right ride and always includes something for everyone, with a special nod to the best of what's new."
