What constitutes the best family car? According to KBB®, room is a big deal (not surprising when you think of those road trips when all you heard was “He’s touching me!”). Fuel economy, entertainment and overall practicality were also deciding factors. KBB experts tested the vehicles by installing and uninstalling car seats, letting their kids hop in and out, and even checking out the back seat entertainment.
Three of Nissan’s five core models, the 2014 Nissan Altima, Rogue, and Pathfinder, were chosen as the Best Family Cars of 2014. The diversity of Nissan’s winning lineup is a testament to the automaker’s ability to meet customers’ various needs in every segment.
“Each of these vehicles was designed to fit the needs of a wide range of customers and situations, while also being family-friendly,” said Dan Mohnke, Nissan’s vice president of Chief Marketing Manager & Marketing Operations.
“From Pathfinder’s more conventional family profile to Rogue’s wealth of amenities and clever cargo solutions to Altima’s ideal fusion of sportiness and practicality, the mainstream appeal of these vehicles’ designs has been borne out in robust sales numbers and third-party accolades such as these most recent awards from KBB.com.”
