Affordable new cars

Getting the whole family ready to go for a trip can be a pain if you have a small car. While a two-seater could have been a hot ride when you were younger, it isn't that practical if you have a family. Getting a larger vehicle like a minivan may not seem like a cool idea, but there are plenty of cars on the market that are both affordable and sharp looking. Kelley Blue Book ranked some of the best 3-row vehicles available that will look good in your driveway:

2015 Kia Sorento
One of the smaller cars on this list, the Sorento is an efficient model that is easy to maneuver and can get up to 20 miles to the gallon. And with it's 290 horsepower engine, this Kia will be soaring past the other cars on the road.

2014 Toyota Sienna
Ranked as one of the best family cars by Kelley Blue Book for 2014, the Toyota Sienna makes room for the whole family and everyone can keep cool because of its 3-zone air conditioning system.

2014 Nissan Quest
You can set out on an adventure with a little help from this car. At a Fair Purchase Price of $25,344, the Quest is nicely priced and can alert you when the tires are low thanks to its Easy-Fill Tire Alert, which gives you a quick honk when it is time to fill up. But make sure you get auto insurance just in case, as you never know when a tire will pop and cause you to get in an accident.

2014 Nissan Rogue
This Nissan may have a smaller third row than the other cars on this list, but don't let that deter you, as this car can provide other amenities, like getting up to 26 miles to the gallon.

2014 Mitsubishi Outlander
With a Fair Purchase Price of $21,977, the Outlander is not only affordable, but it is also practical. A six-speaker stereo, stability control, pressure monitoring system and a micron air filter make this car a dependable buy.

2014 Dodge Grand Caravan
The Caravan was one of the first minivans on the market and it has remained a useful model with its in-floor storage, V6 power and 283 horsepower engine.

2014 Mazda MAZDA5
With an 8.4 rating from Kelley Blue Book's consumer rating, this Mazda is a top of the line vehicle. It comes with a manual transmission and has the ability to get 22 miles to the gallon.
