Best SUVs for Families of 2020

There’s no end to the selection of new SUVs on sale right now. From simple five-seaters to ultra-posh seven-seaters, it takes a lot of time and effort to create your shortlist. Fortunately, we’ve simplified the process for you by reviewing the best SUVs for family use, taking into account the factors that really matter when you’ve got kids and all their paraphernalia on board.

We’ll assess features, both standard and optional, knowing that a great family vehicle is as much about those at the back as those in front. We’ll also give you our opinion on each SUV’s seating capacity, seating comfort, and even the type and quality of materials used in the cabin. Some SUVs may have above-average seating capacity, but not all of them make it easy to fold away those seats when you need to transport large items. The same goes for trunk capacity, also covered in our evaluations.

If you don’t want to be caught flat-footed when merging onto the highway, our performance section covers the available powertrains and how each performs in city and highway driving. Plus, no new SUV for the family should be without a comprehensive suite of safety features, which we also assess in detail. Using our rankings of the top SUVs, you can make a smart choice that will take the stress out of the daily school run.
