These days the family car is just as likely to be a minivan or an SUV as it is to be a sedan, hatchback, or station wagon. For decades, North Hollywood family car shoppers have looked to Toyota -- and specifically to Keyes Toyota -- when the time came to find the perfect family vehicle. That's why we're proud to find two great Toyota vehicles on the annual Kelley Blue Book list of the best family cars.
KBB evaluated dozens of contenders across SUVs and minivans. Their criteria were based on the same kinds of things the average person with a spouse and kids would be considering when they look for a family car. Their criteria included overall value (including long-term total cost of ownership), Safety, reputation, drive quality, available technology, cargo space, comfort and convenience features, and ease of use with child seats.
2017 Toyota Highlander
KBB took note of the 2017 Toyota Highlander SUV due to its "unique fusion of form and function." Like many Keyes Toyota customers, the reviewers liked the redesigned interior and exterior, Toyota Entune infotainment system, and multiple USB ports. Also worthy of mention: easy access -- thanks to the power-activated liftgate available on all but the base trim -- to a cavernous cargo area, the 5,000 pounds of towing capacity, comfortable seating for eight, and 21 mpg city / 27 mpg highway EPA-estimated fuel economy.*
2017 Toyota Sienna
There's a lot to recommend the 2017 Toyota Sienna. For many drivers, the fact that it's the only minivan offering all-wheel drive is enough. But there's more, like the optional Advanced Technology Package with smart cruise control and automatic braking, plus ample cargo volume. An added bonus (for some drivers) is the optional factory-installed Auto Access Seat. When installed, it lowers the second-row seat to street level.
One more thing to consider: these Toyota vehicles both come with peace of mind as standard equipment. Both are five-star NHTSA safety picks, with the 2017 Toyota Highlander also earning an IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus. If you're looking for the perfect family car, these (and many other) Toyota vehicles found at Keyes Toyota deserve a closer look.
