Honda tops KBB Best Family Car Lists

Four of Honda’s top models has been recognized as Best Family Cars in a recent list from Kelley Blue Book. No other brand performed this well in the annual list. So what are the top models, KBB says pick these four models for your family:


2014 Honda Accord


2014 Honda CR-V

2014 Honda Odyssey

2014 Honda Pilot

“Honda vehicles have long been a top choice for American families, known for providing the kind of safety, features and value that they have a right to expect,” said Michael Accavitti, senior vice president of automobile operations for American Honda. “This recognition of four of Honda’s top-selling models validates our ongoing efforts to simply build the best vehicles in every segment in which we compete.”

KBB says the best family car is more than just picking which car has the most space, the most cupholders or anything else. And because the American family is changing, the definition of the family car is changing. Overall, KBB picked seven sedans, five midsized SUVs, two minivans and one hybrid.

“We were careful not to give added advantages to those heavily equipped vehicles, because we wanted the test to be as “real-world” representative as possible,” KBB says.

KBB says the Odyssey stands out. The top feature is the built-in HondaVac on the Touring Elite model. The HondaVac is literally a vacuum in the back of the car, prepared to clean up any spill the little ones make in your back seat.

The Honda CR-V made the list thanks to functionality. KBB says the CR-V may be the easiest second row to fold down and fold back up. Therefore, no matter what your space or cargo needs are, you’ll have no problem fitting inside the CR-V.

The Accord makes the list thanks to the LaneWatch camera. Mounted under the right side mirror, the Accord is an advanced blindspot detector that gives you a true view of what’s happening in the other lane.

The No. 1 reason the Pilot is on this list is versatility in the center console. By putting the shift lever on the dash, the center console is a massive storage console where you can store everything you and your family need on any drive.

If family functionality and innovation are at the top of your list, Waikem Honda is your choice. Bring the whole family, and then see why everyone will find something to fall in love with.
