Top road trip vehicles: Toyota Sienna
For families, the minivan is the best road trip vehicle, by far, says Consumer Reports' Mike Quincy. Kids can sit up high and see out the windows, which keep them from bothering each other, he says. "If they have siblings, the only place to turn to is the other. That brings the line, 'Don't make me stop this car,'" he says. The Sienna has a comfortable, quiet ride, says Jack Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book and kbb.com, plus convenient features, including numerous cup holders, rear-seat DVD entertainment system and 43.6 cubic feet of trunk capacity.
