  • US News & World Report released its ranking of the best cars for families in 2023.

  • The outlet evaluated 92 models and chose nine that offer top-notch interior space, quality, and features.

  • Hyundai, Kia, and Toyota dominated the list.

You could travel around with your family of five in an imposing formation of motorcycles. Although there are distinct pros to this unconventional route (particularly the ease of parking and matching pairs of aviator sunglasses), sedans, minivans, and SUVs also have their perks.

US News & World Report on Tuesday issued its annual ranking of the best new cars for families. After evaluating 92 models, nine 2023 vehicles across nine categories stood out from all the rest. Whether you're into a fuel-sipping hybrid or a spacious SUV, US News has you covered.

What constitutes a great car for families in the eyes of US News? It needs high marks in three categories: interior space, overall quality, and family-friendly features.

Space amounts to passenger and cargo room. Overall quality takes into account vehicle reviews, safety stats, and reliability ratings. Family-focused features that boost a vehicle's score include things like in-car WiFi, automatic emergency braking, hands-free cargo hatches (for opening the trunk with an armful of groceries), and parental controls for new drivers.

Check out the top vehicle in each category below, and see all the finalists over at US News.
