Choosing the best family cars in 2011 is a bit of a tough one, as there are so many factors that you need to consider. These include the size of your family, if you plan on going on long trips, fuel economy and most importantly — budget. Once you have taken all those things into consideration then you are ready to make your choice.
Family cars are usually broken down into three categories, CUVs, sedans, and minivans, and Yahoo News has a few that could be for you. The first is the 2011 Toyota Sienna and is perfect for the smaller family. There is a choice of two engines, a 2.7-liter and a 3.5-liter; both are very smooth with the latter offering just a little more refinement.
The second model that Yahoo News suggests is the 2011 Mazda CX-9 CUV, and is said to have taken a few fun features from the MX-5 and the RX-8 — although you will have to look hard to find them. Steering is said to be agile, which does give it that smaller car feel — something that comes in handy when on a long journey with the kids in the back.
However, Insider Car Reviews has a more extensive list, with 10 of the best 2011 model family cars. Some of the different models include the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 2011 Ford Flex, 2011 Audi A3 amongst others. You will see by that list that sizes vary, but so do families.
We cannot tell you what is the best family car to buy in 2011, but we will tell you to take your time and make the right decision.
