Hyundai Sonata

The Hyundai Sonata offers lots of space, power and safety features, including blind spot detection, a rear camera and braking assist. Automatic braking and lane keep assist are optional.


But for back seat safety, the Sonata is the most affordable new car to offer sunshades to keep the sun out of the eyes of back seat passengers. Those are optional on the Limited trim (and come with a heated steering wheel for you). Get the fuel-sipping Hybrid Limited and the rear sunshades come standard.

Volvo V60

Since day one, Volvo has been known for safety. And that hasn’t changed. They still have one of the best reputations for safety around. And now they have some of the best exterior styling and interior designs to match.

The V60 wagon offers lots of space and lots of safety. But it has a few more family convenience items you won’t find elsewhere. The V60 is one of the lowest-cost cars to offer a rear-seat TV screen entertainment system. And one of the only vehicles to offer built-in booster seats. That option has two levels of boost, and are designed for children from 37-55 inches tall and 33-80 lbs. They fold back down so that adults can sit comfortably. Volvo also offers a booster seat for children 3 to 10 years old.

Volvo offers a spill-protecting rear seat cover and a kick guard with storage pockets and protection for the back of the front seats. Finally, Volvo makes a harness for Fido that will keep your family dog firmly secured in the rear seat.

Get the Polestar edition and know you’re shuttling to soccer practice in the official world’s safest safety car used in the World Touring Car Championship.

Subaru Impreza

The Subaru Impreza offers comfortable performance that is as at home on a logging road as it is on the pavement. All-wheel drive comes standard, and there is a wagon and a sedan available if you need more space.


It’s also one of just two models to offer the top rating for child seat anchors and seat installation by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The Impreza scored a G+.

Subaru’s EyeSight active safety system also offers up a large number of crash-avoidance or reduction technology.
