Whether you have a lot of kids, extended family nearby, or are the hero of your carpool, having a vehicle with three rows of room can be hugely helpful.  Topping the list this year is the 2014 Mazda5, which shoppers can buy for less than $20,000 according to Kelley Blue Book's Fair Purchase Price.

"Many of America's families require a 3-row vehicle to meet their driving needs, but you don't have to take out a mortgage to get a great new vehicle that has the versatility to seat a lot of people," said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com.  "It's the smallest entry on this list and only has room for six, but with a Fair Purchase Price of $19,329 the Mazda5 checks in as the most affordable 3-row vehicle you can buy.  Based on the same architecture that underpinned the previous version of the fun-to-drive Mazda3, Mazda's small people-mover is even available with a manual transmission for families who like to carve canyon roads together." 

Below are the 10 Most Affordable 3-Row Vehicles for 2014, based on Kelley Blue Book® Fair Purchase Price as of May 2014.  Updated weekly and based on current market conditions like vehicle availability, local demand and seasonal buying trends, the Kelley Blue Book Fair Purchase Price shows shoppers what others have been paying for a new car recently and is included in KBB.com's Price Advisor tool, which provides range-based market pricing.  Pricing in the chart below includes destination charges and any additional charge for a third-row option where not standard.
