Each year, U.S. News & World Reports releases their list of cars that are the best choices for families. Ford is proud to have made the list four times this year, the most of any automaker, as the Edge, Fusion, Fusion Hybrid, and Taurus were all honored with the designation.
U.S. News & World Reports bases their decisions are reviews and test drives from auto journalists across the nation. Using this approach allows the judges to have a wide-range look at the most family-friendly cars available in the U.S. The list highlights cars, SUVs, and minivans that provide the best combination of features, reliability, utility, and safety.
The Ford Edge was named the “Best Two-Row Midsize SUV for Families” for being offered at a valuable price and providing strong technology and impressive fuel economy ratings. The Fusion earned the title of “Best Affordable Midsize Car for Families” for its “roomy interior, large trunk, good safety scores, and family-friendly tech features.” The Fusion’s hybrid counterpart was named the “Best Hybrid Car for Families” thanks to its technology and spaciousness. Finally, the Ford Taurus, which offers excellent safety ratings and parent-friendly technology such as the MyKey system, was named the “Best Affordable Full-size Car for Families.”
Each of these cars were also recognized by U.S. News & World Reports for being the “Best Car for the Money” in their respective classes.
