Top Family Haulers of 2019
Whether it’s for their extra cargo capacity, or for their sheer ability to comfortably carry several passengers all at once, family haulers offer solutions to many of the problems parents face when trying to ferry their kids from A to B.
But more recently family haulers have upped their game, not only do they look a lot sleeker (rather than simply looking “functional”), they drive a lot better too, making them an even more attractive proposition for would-be parents looking to exchange their current vehicle for something more practical.
We’ve come up with a list of the best family haulers to hit the roads in 2019.
2019 Chevrolet Traverse
The Traverse manages to pull off a neat trick that not many SUVs can these days. It comfortably carries 8 passengers spread over three rows, but it doesn’t feel like you are getting behind the wheel of a tank.
Practical is this car’s middle name with an impressive 10 cup holders and 6 USB ports spread throughout the interior, which should be enough for even the most demanding families.
If you are afraid that the last row of seats sacrifices trunk space, fear not. There are still 23 cubic feet of storage behind the third row, with 60 with the back row down and a massive 100 with both rear rows folded forward.
2019 VW Atlas
Described by many as the “Passat of Mid-Sized SUVS”, this 7 seater has plenty of room for passenger spread over three rows of seating. They are three genuine rows of seating too, you could stick adults on the back row and they wouldn’t complain.
What stands this car out from the rest of its class is the 6 year or 72,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, which should have you covered for any mishaps that aren’t self-inflicted.
Finally, this car is equipped for active families, with roof rails as standard to strap surfboards, skis or roof boxes to for those adventurous vacations!
2019 Toyota Sienna
Known as “Mr. (or Mrs.) Dependable” the Sienna has helped moms and dads run their kids to soccer practice all over the country since 2011.
Back for 2019 with a much sleeker look, it seems Toyota perhaps listened to those customers yearning for mini-van that didn’t look as boring as the tasks it performed. What’s more, this is now the only mini-van on the market available with all-wheel drive.
Inside, the Sienna is brimming with tech. With Apple CarPlay or Alexa, 5 USB ports, 4G LTE Wifi and a 360° camera system, you’ll have everything you need to keep the two rows of kids occupied whilst never scraping your car against the gatepost on the way out ever again!
2019 Chrysler Pacifica
Chrysler has been pleasing families with their three-rowed minivans for over 35 years, and the 2019 Pacifica continues that trend by providing one of the best minivans to drive on the market.
Not only does it drive well, it is the first to come with hybrid technology, which can boost its highway miles per gallon to an astounding 84 MPGe. This car also outdoes itself on cargo capabilities with the ability to stow a huge 140.5 cubic feet, thanks to its innovative Stow n’ Go seats which creates a mini-cavern in the back.
Its final trick comes via a secret monitoring mirror which allows the front passengers (parents) to covertly keep tabs on those rowdy kids in the back, ending the “who hit who” debate once and for all.
So there you have it, the hottest family haulers hitting the market for 2019. Whether you opt to go for a mini-van or an SUV is up to you, but they can all comfortably handle the rigorous demands of family life.
