Three 2019 Honda Models Named Best Family Cars of 2019

Three 2019 Honda Family - Elyria, OH

If you’re in the market for a family vehicle, the Honda lineup has three solid options you should consider. Three 2019 Honda models, the 2019 Honda Odyssey, 2019 Honda Accord, and 2019 Honda CR-V, were recently named on the Edmunds.com Best Family Cars of 2019 list for their respective segments.

According to Edmunds.com, the 2019 Accord earned its title as Best Family Sedan due to its roomy interior and trunk, along with its standard Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver-assistance technologies, which help keep you confident out on the road.

For the 2019 Odyssey, its Best Family Minivan title was awarded because of its Magic Slide™ seats, Cabin Watch™ technology, and Honda VAC®.

The 2019 CR-V was also recognized for its Honda Sensing® availability, along with its ample cargo space, solid fuel-efficiency numbers, and available hands-free rear liftgate. This allowed it to be named the Best Small Family SUV title.

To determine the winners of each segment, editors at Edmunds.com put eligible vehicles through extensive, engineer-led tests. Each vehicle is then rated using more than 30 criteria in five main categories – driving performance, comfort, interior, utility, and technology. The availability of safety features, along with technology and convenience features that appeal to families, is also considered.
