The Best Cars for Families awards combine quality, size and family-friendly, features into a composite score.  Quality is measured using a weighted average of scores from the U.S. News rankings at the time the awards are published.  The rankings compare cars on the basis of safety, reliability and a consensus of automotive critic’s opinions.  Size is based on a vehicle’s seating capacity and interior space.  For family-friendly features, we factor in the availability of features deemed to be helpful to families by U.S. News editors.  All 2013 winners are listed at www.usnews.com/cars-families.
