Published July 15, 2012

When you talk about a family car, there are a set of common goals everyone is looking out for- family safety, loads of space, comfort seating for all, child friendliness, great mileage and low maintenance among others. Each member in the list we have compiled has all these qualities and a lot more!

5. 2012 Chevrolet Suburban 1500


The very first member in our list is a large SUV capable of holding up nine passengers, towing along more than 4300 kilograms of weight. It is packed with all sorts of features and comfort one could only imagine for the family while going on a long drive.

4.  2012 Kia Sorento


Looking for something with a lot of mileage to supplement the large seating capacity? The 2012 Kia Sorento is the answer! With 32 mpg to hit the highway with, there can only be few complaints with this one. What’s more is the price tag it carries- starts right under 24000$. A perfect fit for every pocket!

3. 2012 Honda CR-V


The 2012 Honda CR-V is one of the most comfortable affordable compact SUVs of the year. And no wonder that it is able to secure the third rank on our list. With quality seating or 5 and plenty of interior storage, there are only going to be few complaints from this one. Also added are internet radio, Bluetooth and voice text messaging- for that geek kid of yours!

2. 2012 Ford Flex


Well known as a worth every dollar midsize SUV, the Ford Flex has an exterior styling like no other. With the second and third rows as spacious as the first, and a EcoBoost V6 option with high power and high fuel economy, it is definitely a vehicle to not miss. With accessories such as a centre console fridge, Active parking assist, and other extra cost add-ons to enhance your experience, the Ford Flex is a complete package.

1. 2012 Honda Odyssey


The 2012 Honda Odyssey secures the ranks as the best family car of 2012 on our list for a reason. It is one of the best minivans around, and has everything from strong performance, to stylish spacious interiors, the 2012 Honda Odyssey has everything it takes to impress one and all.  Plenty of features such as an expandable second row seats to accommodate three more car seats to the 16.2 inch rear entertainment screen which can be used to watch DVDs or play video games can be found in the car that has over the years gained a reputation for reliability.

About Calvin Escobar

The Car scene is so diverse Where I come from, most enthusiasts recognize the amazing engineering (particularly the engines). The bulk of the ridicule originates from the manner in which many of the vehicles are modded/maintained. Thus, the jokes and or hate tends to be aimed more at the owner rather than the machine. All of which makes seeing properly sorted old Toyota's and Hondas at car meets, auto shows, and track days all the more refreshing.
