Keeping the kids safe is always a top priority for parents, but when it comes to choosing family cars, crunching all that safety data can be mystifying. AutoWeb, a website designed to help car shoppers, assessed crash-test scores, curb weight (since heavier cars tend to perform better in crashes), comfort, practicality, gas mileage and performance of cars priced under $25,000.
AutoWeb selected these 10 2015 family cars. Each car is a top safety pick of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Crash-test scores are from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
