New York, New York, UNITED STATES

New York, NY, Feb. 10, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Back in the day, owning a "family-friendly" vehicle meant you owned a station wagon, minivan or hatch back.

About 10 years ago, it meant you had a monstrous SUV big enough to cart around the whole soccer team. Now, with fuel prices nearing $4.00 a gallon, the needs of families across the country are changing.

A wealth of guidelines are used to determine if a vehicle is cut out for a family and most cars built with that criteria rank high in safety, comfort and child-friendliness.

We have video and soundbites from the Chicago Auto Show, the nation's largest and longest-running automotive showcase, where a team of Mommy Bloggers will take you on a tour of some of the top-rated family vehicles designed for the showroom in 2012. During the tour, they will point out what features their followers deem most important.
