The Toyota Prius V and Avalon have been selected for Kelley Blue Book (KBB)’s annual list of 10 Best Family Cars.
“Our annual list is aimed at helping families find the right ride and always include something for everyone, with a special nod to what is new,” said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and market analyst for Kelley Blue Book.
Of the 2013 Toyota Prius V, Kelley Blue Book said, “Let’s say you love Toyota vehicles and want the exceptional fuel economy of a hybrid, but the standard Prius just isn’t big enough….Plus-sizing the Prius cuts combined fuel economy from 50 mpg to 42 mpg, but among family-friendly vehicles the Prius V remains a mileage champ.”
The Toyota Avalon, the other Toyota model in the 10 Best Family Cars list, was also honored in KBB’S Resale Value Awards. The Avalon includes safety features such as a Blind Spot Monitor, a Backup camera to help drivers see what’s behind them, and an available Automatic High Beam, which helps with visibility when driving at night.
“Renowned for its spacious interior quarters, abundance of luxury features and sofa-soft ride, the fully redesigned Toyota Avalon can now add “high style” to its list of highlights. In addition, laudable fuel economy coupled with an exemplary reputation for reliability and quality, make the 2013 Avalon a smart buy for today’s value-conscious family.”
