2011 Dodge Journey
Luckily, there are many family-friendly vehicle options on the market that aren't minivans. A large family sedan such as the Chrysler 300 or Ford Taurus is always a safe bet. Both are available with all-wheel drive, and each features a large trunk that can swallow all the soccer gear.
If a family sedan isn't your style there are a dizzying array of crossovers each with unique features. Crossovers like the Dodge Journey offer unique storage bins inside the floor. The Chevrolet Equinox has a sliding rear seat which can increase rear leg room or cargo capacity, depending on your needs.
