IRVINE, CA--Feb. 14, 2014: Not all options are as obvious as a minivan when it comes to cars best suited for families. In the same light, not all families have the same needs when it comes to their ideal car. Helping ease the struggle to find the best new cars tailored for families of all sizes, the editors of Kelley Blue Book have named their recommended list of the 12 Best Family Cars of 2014.

"This year we built on our process to put together the best family car list by recruiting families to assist our editors in a rigorous comparison test, providing a comprehensive approach to seeking out the most functional new cars for families," said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com. "More than just a list, Best Family Cars 2014 is an all-new section of KBB.com that outlines in detail how well America's top family vehicles withstand their daily routines. The vehicles making the cut are winners in the areas of safety, comfort, driving performance, room for child seats, cargo space, rear-seat entertainment, and other family-friendly features."

The KBB.com editors started with 21 different vehicles top-ranked in their Expert Ratings in various family-friendly categories and enlisted the help of several families to thoroughly test these family haulers. This approach included analyzing seven sedans, six small SUVs, five midsize SUVs, two minivans and one hybrid wagon, from a total of 11 different brands. The expert editors tallied the results based on participant feedback and compared notes, naming the best of the bunch.

"We were surprised at the number of sedans that made the Best Family Cars list this year," said Nerad. "Once upon a time before minivans and SUVs, sedans were the primary family car of choice, and this year's list proves the modern sedan still makes a fine family car with the 2014 Honda Accord, Chevrolet Impala and Nissan Altima all landing a spot among the best."
