HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Parents Magazine has released the vehicles that rate the best for families.

The magazine partnered with car-shopping site Edmunds, to look at the best cars for families when it comes to safety, how easy it is to handle, and which cars were made with families in mind.

“I have two kids, and it seems like there’s always either a dog, or a friend or something else that needs to fit in the car," said Meghan Scranton, dealer principal for Scranton Motors.

The magazine broke the best vehicles down into categories: Best 3-row SUVs, Best 2-row SUVS, Best Minivan, Best SUV-like Wagons, Best Hybrid, and Best Sedans.

The Chevy Traverse won awards left and right, and is the top pick for third-row SUVs.

“If you are a large family on the go, three-row SUVs are definitely one to consider," said Mindy Walker, executive editor of Parents Magazine.

Volkswagen Atlas- Seats 7, $30,750+
