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.

A big part of being an all-around safe driver is knowing how to share the road with bicyclists. Whether it’s the start of spring or the tail end of fall, cyclists will be out on the roads with you, and it’s important that you know how to ensure their safety and your own.
Leave four feet of space
When passing a cyclist, the law requires that you always leave at least four feet of space between your vehicle and the bike. If it is not possible to create this much space, then you should not make any attempt to pass until it is possible to do so safely and legally.
Yield to bicyclists
Bicyclists should be treated as automobiles, which means that they should be yielded to just as you would yield to another vehicle. Give cyclists the right of way and grant them extra time when crossing intersections.
Be aware of your surroundings
Even after you have passed a cyclist, you should remain aware of their presence on the road. Look for cyclists when you are parked as well as when you are in motion, watching for them when you open car doors or when you park your vehicle.
Remain extra cautious of young cyclists
Children on bicycles will be unpredictable in comparison to the experienced adult. Because of this, it’s important for drivers to slow down when driving near young cyclists, and to expect them not to follow traffic laws.
