2021 Chrysler Pacifica is the winner of Best Family Cars 2021 event
Chrysler Pacifica is named PARENTS Best Family Cars 2021 winner, making the vehicle a second consecutive win in the event. In fact, Pacifica remains the most awarded minivan over the last five years, and has already earned 145 honors and industry accolades since its debut.
Coverage of PARENTS Best Family Cars 2021 will be featured in the May issue of PARENTS magazine and online at Parents.com/bestcars.
Last year, Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid was named PARENTS' "Best Eco Pick," reflecting its position as the first and only plug-in hybrid minivan.
The event recognizes new vehicles for their advanced performance, safety features, and convenience of use. As it comes to minivans, the jury is especially cautious on whether these fit families and manage to answer to their needs.
In order to come with the final contesters for the prestigious award, PARENTS experts tested more than 50 vehicles and have managed to narrow down the finalists to 24 models that featured enhanced safety technologies and family-friendly additions.
