Previously Featured Best Family Sedans

While we love sporty coupes and convertibles as much as the next car enthusiast, we also realize that something a bit more versatile is required for busy families. However, just because you have kids doesn't mean you can't drive a cool car. Our favorite family sedans boast all of the features that parents desire, including excellent safety, roomy cabins and plenty of cargo room, while still offering stylish looks and top-notch performance.
