Chevrolet Impala

Named a Best Car for the Money and one of the Best Cars for Families by U.S. News & World Report, the Impala is a full-size premium sedan that’s gaining popularity. With your choice of a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine with 22 mpg city and 31 mpg highway or a powerful 3.6-liter V6 that produces 305 hp, you’ll find just what you’re looking for. Other highlights include 18.8 cubic feet of cargo capacity, Chevrolet MyLink with an eight-inch touch screen, Bose Active Noise Cancellation and 4G LTE Wi-Fi from OnStar. All this for an MSRP starting at $27,095 for the 2016 model, making it a great value as well.

“The 2016 Chevrolet Impala is still one of the stars of the segment — and we think it’s finally worthy of wearing the Impala name that recalls some of the automaker’s most stylish 1960s sedans and coupes,” notes AutoTrader.

Honda Pilot

In addition to top honors from U.S. News & World Report, which also rated it the top midsize SUV, the newest Honda Pilot was given a 2016 KBB.com Best Buy of the Year award and top scores from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, among only a handful of SUVs to earn the distinction of “Top Safety Pick+.”

The eight-passenger Pilot is available in five trim levels and has a starting MSRP of $30,345. Even the entry-level LX model comes standard with push-button start, Bluetooth wireless connectivity, a seven-speaker audio system and a multi-angle rearview camera. As you climb through the trim ladder you can add leather seating, ventilated front seats, a rear-seat entertainment system and the safety of Honda Sensing that includes adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, road departure mitigation and a collision mitigation braking system.

From protecting your home while you’re away to protecting your identity and wallet – Colonial has the resources and tools you need to stay safe on your next vacation.“The 2016 Honda Pilot is suddenly one of the best three-row crossovers you can buy. Combining the rarity of a usable third row with luxury levels of quiet and comfort, the Pilot is a win-win for the entire family,” says Left Lane News.

Toyota Sienna

An MSRP of $28,850 gets you into one of the best minivans on the market. The Sienna, also known as the “swagger wagon,” is more than just a people mover with seating for up to eight. Leather upholstery, a dual-pane moonroof, power sliding doors and tailgate, second-row lounge seating and a dual-view Blu-ray Disc entertainment center with 16.4-inch color display are all available. Flexible seating lets you accommodate a variety of passenger and cargo arrangements with a maximum capacity of 150 cubic feet of cargo space, made even easier with the Split & Stow 3rd Row seat. All models utilize a 3.5-liter V6 engine with 266 hp and 245 pound-feet of torque that brings with it a 3,500-pound towing capacity. And the Sienna is the only minivan on the market available with an all-wheel-drive system.

“With its accommodating interior, easy manners and stellar reliability record, the 2016 Toyota Sienna remains at the top of the class among minivans. Just off a freshening last year that granted updates inside and out, the Sienna continues to earn its status as an exemplary choice for growing families,” says Kelley Blue Book

Nissan NV Passenger

For those with larger families, there aren’t many great options if you’re not interested in a large SUV like the Chevrolet Tahoe or Suburban, but the NV Passenger is a great alternative. Starting at an MSRP of $32,810, the NV Passenger has a remarkable 324 seating configurations (with seating for up to 12) and an abundance of features like leather seats, the Nissan Connect system and a rearview monitor.

The NV Passenger is ready for everything, with 800,000 miles of reliability testing and 7,000 quality and durability tests, backed up by a five-year/100,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty — the best commercial van warranty in America.
