There are a few essential qualities you'll want in a vehicle if you're taking a trip with kids in tow, including top safety features, decent fuel economy, space and a low price.

All of these 2014 model year cars have a five-star safety rating from the government's site, SafeCar.gov. And you'll find that the manufacturers' suggested retail prices on these are all less than $27,000.

We've chosen five different types of cars, ranging from a sport utility vehicle to a compact car, to suit every type of family. Relative to their size, all these cars offer space as well as utility.

The mpg ratings on our picks start at a combined 24 mpg and go up from there. So, whether you're taking a short jaunt or a long road trip, these cars should help you get there with comfort and safety without too much fuel.

Here's Bankrate's list of cars for a trip to Grandma's house.
