With high-tech performance, safety, and convenience features available at all price levels, Parents Magazine says it's easier than ever to choose a car that's built for your family's needs.

Parents magazine has revealed their list of the 10 Best Family Cars for 2019, a reliable resource for families considering a new car purchase. For the 12th consecutive year, the parenting experts examined and assessed hundreds of vehicles, narrowing down the list to the ten models that offer the best value, performance, safety and family-friendly features.

Thirty cars were tested. 90 car seats installed. 300+ cup-holders counted. Their winning models (selected from a field that aced the government’s safety tests) deliver enough muscle to effortlessly carry your squad – and all their stuff – for years to come.

All of us at Timmons Subaru Long Beach are thrilled to state that two Subaru models made the coveted list!

Here is what they had to say:

Subaru Forester

This longtime favorite ($24,295+) got a modern makeover this year. Now standard, the brand’s Eyesight Driver Assist Technology prevents you from swaying into other lanes. A more powerful engine provides extra energy for speeding up when needed. Inside, you score tons of room for passengers and all your stuff. “You can get up to three car seats across the second row, if the seats are narrow,” says Patterson. And you won’t have to fill your tank as often because the Forester gets 26 to 33 mpg, the most of any vehicle on our list.

Subaru Ascent

The newest SUV on the road, the Subaru Ascent ($31,995+) appeals to adventure-seeking families. Some models can tow up to 5,000 pounds (hello, camper!), and all come with raised ladder- type roof rails. Its EyeSight Driver Assist Technology, which includes features like automatic braking if the vehicle senses a crash, comes standard. You’ll also appreciate 19 cupholders and a storage compartment behind the third row to stash weekend essentials. Five car seats or boosters can fit comfortably. “The head restraints are adjustable and removable and have minimal angling—the ideal combination for installing car seats,” says Patterson.
