Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com recruited families and brought its usual host of expert editors to determine this year’s list of the 15 Best Family Cars of 2015. Among the chosen winners were the Camry midsize sedan, the Highlander midsize crossover, and the Sienna minivan.
Selecting the winners is no small task. KBB.com gathered “23 of the latest and greatest different vehicles from a variety of manufacturers” and put them all to real-world tests. Evaluations were based on comfort, driving feel, safety, child seats, cargo space, rear-seat entertainment, and other extra features like advanced electronics and ease-of-access.
The new Camry was a clear contender from the beginning thanks to its total redesign for the 2015 model year. It’s the most attractive Camry to date (at least we think so at Bill Walsh Toyota) and quite roomy and comfortable to boot, which should help it remain the best-selling car in the US, as it has been for the past 12 years.
The Highlander and Sienna were just as convincing. The former is just the right size and full of storage places, and the latter’s entertainment and Drive Easy Speak system make it really easy to keep the kids under control.
