DETROIT--Feb. 14, 2014: In a quest to find the vehicles best suited for families, Kelley Blue Book editors collaborated with real families to test an array of vehicles including anything from sedans to minivans.

Two Chevrolets made their way into KBB.com’s 12 Best Family Cars of 2014 recommended list, the Chevrolet Impala four-door sedan and the Traverse midsize SUV.

“We designed the Chevrolet Impala and Traverse precisely to offer a wide suite of useful family-friendly features,” said Russ Clark, Chevrolet director of marketing. “It is good to see that KBB.com and the customers they surveyed agree.”

Nominees were chosen specifically for excellence in safety, comfort, driving performance, room for child seats, cargo space, rear-seat entertainment and other family-friendly features.

The KBB.com expert editors started with 21 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. KBB.com editors then recorded the results and feedback to select the winners.

“We were surprised at the number of sedans that made the Best Family Cars list this year,” Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com. “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.”
