How We Rank These Cars

The Best Cars for Moms rank vehicles by iSeeCars' analysis of each vehicle’s average lifespan and annual lifespan cost.

Only vehicles with a NHTSA safety rating of 5 or an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ rating, along with key family-friendly features like seating, are included and ranked. For each vehicle, we also display an iSeeCars Score.

iSeeCars Score is an analysis of three factors: reliability, resale value and safety. It is calculated based on the latest research and analysis by our data science team. The data analysis comes from over 12 million new and used vehicles in our Longest-Lasting Cars and 5-Year Depreciation Studies, combined with NHTSA and IIHS Safety Ratings.

Vehicles are scored in three categories:

Best Minivans for Moms for 2024 (37)

Reliability | 33.3%

Best Minivans for Moms for 2024 (38)

Best Minivans for Moms for 2024 (39)

The safety score is calculated based on the last five years of crash test ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and incorporates the latest Top Safety Pick information from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
