Kelley Blue Book, 12 Best Family Cars of 2017 #KBBFamilyCars #sponsored

This post is sponsored by Kelley Blue Book for the Mom It Forward Influencer Network. All opinions stated are complete and 100% mine.

When it comes to trusted car information sources, I use and recommend Kelley Blue Book. It’s the vehicle valuation and information source trusted and relied upon by both consumers and the automotive industry. When a company has been in business for 90 years, I think it’s safe to say that they’re leading in automotive information. The first Blue Book was created a long time before I was born, way back in 1926. serves car buyers like us and the content is written to provide all of the information buyers need to make smart vehicle purchase decisions.

If you’re looking for the top vehicle information, Kelley Blue Book has named its list of the 12 Best Family Cars of 2017. You can read all of the information on the vehicles including new car buyer’s guides as well as read about the safety of the vehicle, the value of each vehicle, the reputation, and information about various child safety car seats, among other factors. The Kelley Blue Book editors recommended their choices for a diverse group of new vehicles that best meet the needs of today’s families keeping safety and other important information front and center. You can learn everything you need to know about car values, car sales, car reviews and awards and top cars on’s editorial staff includes parents like you and I who have children spanning in ranges of ages from toddler to beyond college. The editors of Kelley Blue Book enlisted the help of their own families to put this year’s contenders to the real-world test. Starting prices for this year’s winners range from about $20,000 to the low $30,000 range thus are affordable for the majority of consumers, with only one vehicle exceeding a $40,000 starting price. Keeping buyers with children in mind, child car safety seats were very important in the consideration of the list of winners. editors have an accompanying car seat guide for your kids with useful tips and specific details for readers.

How do they come up with the list of top vehicles? I’m glad you asked. The Kelley Blue Book editorial team drives hundreds of new cars, trucks, SUVs and minivans every year. This is the first year that no sedans have been included on’s list of the Best Family Cars. While there are plenty of excellent family-focused luxury SUVs to recommend,’s editors focused strictly on mainstream brands for Kelley Blue Book’s 12 Best Family Cars of 2017. Included in this year’s content is a car seat guide with useful tips and specific details regarding the strengths and weaknesses of each of this year’s Best Family Cars. The Kelley Blue Book Editorial team produced a video for this year’s winners. The link to the video can be found here: Be sure to check Kelley Blue Book out before making your next car purchase.

    My Dad introduced me to the Kelley Blue Book many years ago. It’s a great tool for determining pricing when selling or buying a car privately.

    KBB is one of the first places I stop when looking at the value of a car. They’ve been around so long and are very trustworthy.

    I don’t need a “family” style car just yet but within the next few years I hope that will change. I love my Toyota Rav4, I’m a SUV girl and most likely will go for the Highlander, it’s larger and still a Toyota which I’ve fallen in love with.

    I am brand loyal, so I always go with the same brand. I never even thought to check the Kelley Blue Book before, but maybe I will in a few years when I am ready for my next car :)

    I am aware of the kelley blue book but have never used it,. My husband refers to it often when looking at new or used cars. I know he has taught our grown children when they learned to drive to refer to the kelley blue book.

    We always check with Kelley Blue Book before buying a new car and I was glad to see my daughter’s SUV listed in the top 12 best family cars. Safety and comfort are always at the top of my list when purchasing a new car.
