Toyota Prius v and Avalon Earn Family-Friendly Honors

Posted by Josh Chang on Wed, Jun 12, 2013 @ 08:00 AM

What does the phrase "family-friendly" really mean? Well, in the automotive world it means versatile, durable, safe, reliable and – in light of increasing fuel costs – efficient. Those are just a few of the areas Kelley Blue Book eyed while creating its 10 Best Family Cars of 2013 list, which included not one, but two Toyota vehicles. The automotive research group praised the new Toyota Avalon and the Prius v for their family-friendly ways, and we're not surprised these two vehicles were chosen.

Here's what Kelley Blue Book had to say about these two great models:

"Let's say you love Toyota vehicles and want the exceptional fuel economy of a hybrid, but the standard Prius just isn't big enough. Then consider the 2013 Prius v, which comes jam-packed with all the Prius-ness you crave while also offering roughly 50 percent more cargo space. Yes, plus-sizing the Prius cuts combined fuel economy from 50 mpg to 42 mpg, but among family-friendly vehicles the Prius v remains a mileage champ."

In addition, laudable fuel economy coupled with an exemplary reputation for reliability and quality make the 2013 Avalon a smart buy for today's value-conscious family."
