    Blending the minivan and SUV together, the crossover is becoming quite popular. Third row seats and good gas mileage makes this an easy pick for most families. But what makes the Enclave stand out is the five-star rating it earned in government crash tests.
  2. 2012 Chevrolet Traverse
    Similar to the Enclave, the Traverse has plenty of space and features to offer. Including numerous air bag throughout the vehicle and a five-star safety rating.
  3. 2013 Ford Taurus
    Between blind spot mirrors and a traction stability control, this sedan is a great pick for families looking for something smaller. It has a four-star rating from the government tests and earned the highest rating of "Good" from Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS).
  4. 2012 BMW 5 Series
    If you're looking for something a little more luxurious, you can't go wrong with the 34MPG BMW. It scored five-stars in testing with its traction control in wet conditions and other safety features.
  5. 2012 Honda Odyssey
    Still the king of family vehicles, this minivan has plenty to offer. Seating up to eight passengers with lots of leg room, you know this vehicle will keep you and your loved ones safe on the roads. Its five-star rating is a testament to that!
