Once again this year, Parents magazine has named its picks for best vehicles when it comes to meeting the needs of families.

The magazine took into account the safety evaluations carried out by the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) and the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety), and did its own testing up come up with its choices.

35 vehicles made the semi-finalists’ circle after being evaluated for braking, steering, acceleration and a host of other parameters. Vehicles were also appraised for their ability to accommodate child car seats.

Here is the list of the best family vehicles for 2022 according to Parents magazine.
