TAMPA, Fla. - The Tampa Police Department has arrested a man they say shot a pregnant woman in the head as she slept in a car with four other members of her family, including three children.
To choose our award winners, we looked at 92 new cars, SUVs and minivans from the 2023 model year. Our award methodology combines professional automotive reviews, safety and reliability ratings, seating and cargo volume and the availability of family-friendly features. Within each of the nine automotive classes covered by our awards, the vehicle with the highest composite score is named the Best Car for Families in that category.
Connectivity and comfort are key factors in the family car market as well. In-car Wi-Fi, rear-seat USB ports and even heated and ventilated rear seats are now available. All but three of our award winners have in-car Wi-Fi. All feature Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for enhanced smartphone connectivity. The Hyundai Santa Fe, Kia Telluride, Highlander Hybrid and Odyssey all feature rear sunshades to keep back-seat occupants cool, while you can get heated rear seats in the Chevrolet Suburban, Kia EV6, Hyundai Tucson, Santa Fe, Odyssey, Telluride and Highlander Hybrid. Additionally, the Kia K5 and every winner except the Camry Hybrid has more than one USB port available in the second or third row.
For the family tents, we observed the difficulty and duration of the setup process for each one, and we asked each family, during and after each trip, for feedback on the experience of sleeping in their tent and on specific tent qualities they liked and disliked. We found some common themes: Just about every family appreciated a tent that was quick and intuitive to set up. And the families universally praised tents that had mesh roofs with little obstruction, and that had built-in pockets within easy reach of a sleeping position.
Big Agnes Big House 6: Although we liked the look and feel of this brightly colored tent, the vestibule is a separate, expensive purchase, making the full package significantly more pricey than our family-tent picks.
A family car is a car classification used in Europe to describe normally-sized cars. The name comes from the marketed use of these cars to carry a whole family locally or on vacations. Most family cars are hatchbacks or sedans, although there are MPVs, estates and cabriolets with the same structure as with the other body style. The term covers two types of family cars.

The new Vauxhall Astra has surprised many, including us, for its revamped kerb appeal. From the bland, boring hatchback of yesterday, the Astra is now a bold offering. It's a strong enough contender for family shortlists that it won our 2022 Family Hatch of the Year award. We particularly appreciate the wide choice of engines, both in size and fuel type. They're all turbocharged, yet average carbon emissions are down by a whopping 19 per cent. Entry-level prices are kind to family household budgets, as is fuel economy, and Vauxhall is pretty generous with the kit it includes as standard too.
When we exclude the family car, we get a somewhat different wealth narrative than the one being told across media platforms nationally. Without the family car, the middle black family has a net worth of $4,160. The middle white American family in contrast is still worth $140,600. This means, using an accounting model that more accurately excludes the family car, the median white family is worth over 33 times that of the median black family.
There is a similarly daunting gap between black families at the 99th percentile and their white counterparts. The 99th percentile black family is worth a mere $1,574,000 while the 99th percentile white family is worth over 12 million dollars. This means over 870,000 white families have a net worth above 12 million dollars, while, out of the 20 million black families in America, fewer than 380,000 are even worth a single million dollars. By comparison, over 13 million of the total 85 million white families are millionaires or better.
Lastly intra-race wealth disparities tell a far too often overlooked story. Wealth is not distributed unevenly just among whites. The data shows that the top 20% of black families control 95% of the little American black wealth that does exist. The interesting angle is to look at the wealth disparity within race without the family car. Without the family car the 99th percentile white family is worth $12 million. This means they are worth just fewer than 86 times as much as the median white family using the same accounting. But the telling narrative is to look at the intra-race black wealth disparity. Without the family car the 99th percentile black family is worth $1,574,000. This would make them worth 378 times as much as the median black family using the same accounting.
As a family rig, the Ford Bronco Sport stands out for its terrific storage space. Despite its small footprint, its 65.2 cubic feet of stowage with the rear seats flipped down matches or bests many of its rivals, and it leaves access to 32.5 cubes behind that second row. That much space smokes much of the competition in the five-passenger SUV realm. What does this mean for parents? It means a baby jogger or stroller can fit back there with ease.
The EV6 is a crossover with plenty of room for a family of four, though its performance and fastback silhouette make it just as impressive on a windy road as it is sitting in a carpool line. Plenty of power, tight steering, and excellent handling make it easy to forget that the EV6 is a practical ride. That goes double for the GT-Line with its sportier styling, tinted windows, and upgrades like electric front seat adjustment and wireless phone charging.
Kevin Arnold - The Narrator: And so we finally got our new car. It wasn't red, it wasn't a convertible, heck, it wasn't even a Mustang. But it was brand new. And it was pretty cool. 'Course, Dad got his shot at king-for-a-day... and we were happy for him. But that afternoon, I began to understand what Dad had been going through. There was more to that old car than fuel pumps and crankshafts. There was a part of all of us in that car. The places we'd gone, the things we'd done... the family we had been. The family that was moving on. And for the first time, I understood the value of what my Dad had put into it. And why it was so hard to let it go.
If circumstances dictate that you need to have a family car, you might think that spells the end of your dreams of owning something fast and fun to drive. Fear not, there are plenty of fast family cars on the market right now that can fill both roles.
This list of the 10 best fast family cars brings together cars from all sectors of the market. At the lower end of the price bracket, you'll find hot hatches like the brilliant Volkswagen Golf R, offering up four-wheel drive security, a practical five-door body and a punchy engine to carve up your B-road of choice.
The Sport Turismo estate is arguably even more handsome than the space-age saloon, and brings more headroom and a 446-litre boot to become a genuine family car contender, albeit without quite as much room as an M3 Touring inside.

Family cars are usually boring, right? Not this one. The 2023 Kia Telluride is anything but, and our roster of editor-parents found a lot to like with it. The family-hauling SUV pleases people big and small by delivering ample occupant space, competitive cargo room, a laundry list of kid-approved creature comforts and parent-approved road manners.
Launched for the 2020 model year, the Telluride is available with seven or eight seats across three rows. Updates during the last couple of model years include a fresh face and new off-road-oriented X-Line and X-Pro variants for 2023 that have kept it competitive in a growing class of family-focused three-row SUVs. The sole powertrain is a 291-hp, 3.8-liter V-6 and an eight-speed automatic transmission that work well together with front- or all-wheel drive. The Telluride is stable and composed for long-trip-comfortable road manners, and its 5,500-pound maximum towing capacity should also come in handy if that trip involves pulling extra toys.
