Not all cars are made equal, especially when it comes to hauling around kids. Choosing a car when you become a parent isn’t just as simple as waving goodbye to your sporty, convertible and jumping into the nearest minivan. A new report highlights the best 2019 cars for car seats.

In honor of National Child Passenger Safety Week, has just released it’s annual Car Seat Check Honor Roll for 2019. The list includes the best vehicles of the year for ease of use and installation of car seats. Out of 80 cars tested, the cars chosen all allow for ample room to install a car seat and easy to access Latch systems.

This year’s list includes 13 vehicles earning an “A” grade, more than ever before, Editor-in-Chief and certified child passenger safety technician, Jenni Newman explains in the video above. “With 13 vehicles making the 2019 Car Seat Check Honor Roll, it’s clear that automakers recognize the importance of making a vehicle’s Latch system easier to use for parents and caregivers,” Newman said in a press release. “Not all vehicles are created equal or are ideal for easy and safe car seat installation. Our goal is to help break down the overwhelming amount of information for parents so they can make informed vehicle decisions and easily prepare for their growing families.”
