5 Cars That Fit Your Whole Family

More seats and spacious trunks make these the perfect vehicles for an active group of parents and kids.

When you've got a big family, you need a big car.

Keeping up with soccer practice, dance rehearsals or simply a trip to the grocery store for three—or more—requires a spacious trunk and room for wiggling. Add some pets and even the largest vehicle could seem cramped.

You mean.. what a random advertisement... made to look like an actual article. I am sure Patch is getting paid by cars.com to put their ad up here.

No reference to safety features? I would think that would be a priority for families.
