Good Housekeeping has named the Chrysler Pacifica a 2019 Best New Car award winner in the Minivan category.

“It’s the ultimate family vehicle with all the useful features you want, at an unbeatable value,” says Rachel Rothman, Good Housekeeping Chief Technologist & Engineering Director.

“It also has tons of bins and cubbies so everyone has a spot to store their toys and snacks, second-row passengers each get their own LCD screen. Plus, the infotainment system is super-easy to navigate,” added Laurie Jennings, Good Housekeeping Institute Director & Lead Consumer Tester.”

The Good Housekeeping Institute worked with Car and Driver to screen hundreds of new vehicles and identify the top makes and models for 2019. Experts logged more than 5,000 miles on test tracks and open roads while assessing the top priorities drivers value in a vehicle: safety, value, handling, interior design, comfort and onboard technology.

To select the best vehicles, engineers, analysts and consumers evaluated several features such as the ease of folding and stowing seats, storage and trunk cargo space, as well as the fit and installation of child safety seats. Bonus points were awarded for innovative technology such as hands-free liftgates and other features that improve the driving experience.

Last year, the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid took home the 2018 Best New Car in the Hybrid category.
