Whether you’re shopping for a family Christmas present or finding more room than you expected in your year-end budget, there are plenty of reasons to shop for new cars this time of year.

For one, there’s amazing holiday specials that can save you a ton of money on the purchasing price and financing terms. Secondly, as 2020 quickly approaches on the calendar, you’ll see massive markdowns on the 2019 models in an effort to push inventory off the lot and make space for the new line up — and even if you don’t see the price tag you want, chances are that you’ll be able to talk the dealer down a good bit if he or she is in the holiday spirit.

All that aside, it certainly does feel nice to enter a new year — a new chapter — with a new car! So what are the best family vehicles available on the market? We’ll take a look at our top five favorites for you to consider during your shopping purchase. On Dasher, on Dancer, on down to the dealer you go!

Toyota Rav4 XLE
I wrote a while ago about what a great family vehicle the Toyota Rav4 XLE when I worked with Prestige. Six years later, and my opinion still hasn’t changed! Back then, I was wowed by the touch screen display featuring GPS, Sirius Radio, and the back-up camera that I’d never seen before. But since then, Toyota kicked their technology up tenfold and the 2019 Rav4 comes backed with new features that any family will love.

What makes it a great vehicle for you and your crew? Here are some safety standouts:

• Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
• Smart Key System
• Available Audio Plus (for hands-free communication and entertainment!)
• Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0
Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
Lane Departure Alert
Automatic High Beams
Road Sign Assist
Lane Tracing Assist

Toyota Camry XSE
Toyota Safety Sense™ (TSS) comes standard on most new cars in their lineup. So, if Mom or Dad wanted to opt for a sportier ride, such as a Toyota Camry XSE to cruise around Nashville, they can feel confident knowing that their high-performance vehicle is safe enough to transport the kids in, too.

In addition to the industry-leading TSS tech, this model comes with additional safety features such as:
• Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control
• Traction Control
• Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)
• Electronic Brakeforce Distribution
• Star Safety System
• Brake Assist with Smart Stop Tech
• LATCH+ Lower Anchor Tether (to keep children safe!)

Volkswagen Atlas

We love Toyota, but European manufacturers also bring a lot to the table. The 2019 VW Atlas, for example, was named a Best Family Car by Kelly Blue Book – and we agree! One of the reasons why we would recommend going this route is because German car manufacturers are known for delivering the gold standard in auto service.

Say we wanted to take a family road trip in our Atlas from the South up to the Pacific Northwest; it gets great MPG, boasts a 5,000-lb towing capacity, and has seating for a family of seven plus room for all your possessions. If something were to breakdown by the time we got to Washington, we could just stop into Spokane Valley VW dealer and know that our car would receive the same high-quality service we get from our trusted technician in Tennessee.

That’s because VW takes great pride in their products and requires that their certified mechanics receive specialized training on all their vehicles. That way, they know eachproprietary part like the back of their hand.

They’re so confident in their product, however, that maintenance issues should be the least of your worries  and proof of their confidence is shown by their six year (or 72,000 miles) bumper-to-bumper warranty, which is the best warranty offer in America! 
But the Atlas isn’t a stand-out option just because it gives you confidence in your investment – it also comes loaded with an impressive amount of safety features that will give you and your family peace of mind:

• Intelligence Crash Response System
• Automatic Post-Collision Braking System
• Tire Pressure Monitoring System
• Electronic Stability Control
• 4MOTION® Weather Traction

As an added bonus, you get to ride around in the lap of luxury – without feeling like you’re busting the budget on an indulgent purchase – thanks to its approachable price tag.
