If you’re in the market for a new family vehicle, chances are you’ve thought long and hard about whether you actually need it, and likely have put it off for as long as reasonably possible. If it’s finally time to sign the paperwork, the good news is that you have plenty of affordable options.

Below, you’ll find vehicles that do what a parent needs a car to do, keeps kids safe and comfortable, and come in at fair starting prices. You’ll find a number of options, including 2- and 3-row crossovers and SUVs, minivans, and even a wagon, all of which are on dealer lots right now. If you’re planning to shop soon, this list will give you a great head start on your research.

We’ve used each vehicle’s U.S. News overall score to sort this list, so it takes into account the attributes that matter most to you as a shopper, including performance, safety, reliability, and interior quality and comfort. As you read, keep in mind that the scores you see here might not match the score in a vehicle’s full review. That’s because we update our reviews when new information becomes available.
