Top Picks for Big Families

Large families need a car that can comfortably carry six or more people and their stuff. From a pool that included our Best Bets and all the newer cars we've driven since, we considered station wagons, crossovers, SUVs and minivans. We looked at safety features, driving refinement, cargo versatility, number of seats and cabin comfort.

 Best New Car for Big Families
2014 Buick Enclave
Starting MSRP $39,665

A minivan is the obvious choice for large families, but those willing to think beyond sliding doors will find a lot to love about the Buick Enclave three-row crossover. The Enclave's premium appearance outside and roomy comfort inside won over our editors. Its luxuriously appointed cabin offers seating for up to eight, and although the Enclave doesn't offer as much cargo room as a minivan, it's still generous; the Enclave is one of the most spacious large crossovers. The Enclave wins for its just-right blend of comfort, style, drivability and utility.

 Best Deal for Big Families
2014 Nissan Quest
Starting MSRP $26,850

The Nissan Quest minivan stands out from the pack of rounded crossovers and minivans with its boxy exterior, sleek wraparound rear windows and bold styling, but most of all for its frugal nature. The Quest's luxurious leather- and faux-wood-trimmed interior will make you the envy of the carpool lane, and convenience features like an around-view camera, conversation mirror and easy fold-flat seats help make parenting just a bit easier. What parents will like most of all, however, is its price; this minivan offers a lot of space for the money.
