2018 Honda Accord and Odyssey Make “10 Best Family Cars” List

Honda Accord

When shopping around for the perfect family vehicle, potential buyers are often looking for reliability, space, and safety. Publications like Parents magazine and Edmunds.com understand the concerns of these buyers, and that’s why they release an annual list of the “10 Best Family Cars.” On the “10 Best Family Cars 2018 List” announced in June and published in the July issue of Parents magazine, both the all-new 2018 Honda Accord and Odyssey were recognized.*

To determine this year’s list of awardees, the staffs at Parents magazine and Edmunds.com carefully evaluated 300 vehicles. They considered family-friendly features, like safety ratings and car seat installation, and general features, like overall driving comfort, fuel efficiency, and affordability. Both the 2018 Accord and Odyssey excelled in these tests. The midsize Accord offers exceptional driving dynamics and handling, tons of standard safety features thanks to the advanced Honda Sensing® suite, and a spacious interior that allows everyone to sit comfortably. The Accord is also sleek and sophisticated, ensuring that your family will arrive in style.

The Odyssey has been a family favorite for decades and was entirely redesigned for the 2018 model year. With the redesign, Honda further elevated the Odyssey’s performance and interior technologies and designed the cabin to be spacious and comfortably quiet. The new Odyssey also offers CabinWatch™, which is the industry’s first in-vehicle rear-seat camera and allows you to keep an eye on the kids without having to turn around, and available Honda Sensing® to give you additional peace of mind while transporting your family.

2017 Honda Odyssey Family Features

Finding the right minivan to meet the needs of the modern family can be fairly difficult, especially since the segment has shrunk so much over the past few decades. Fortunately, the 2017 Honda Odyssey is still going strong and continues to raise the bar for the segment as a whole. We here at Floyd Traylor Honda know of a few family-friendly features that make the Honda Odyssey a great choice.

2017 Honda Odyssey

Space

The 2017 Honda Odyssey features a spacious interior with seating for up to eight passengers. Once seated, passengers will enjoy up to 172.6 cubic feet of space. Comfortable third-row seats make the Honda Odyssey the perfect vehicle for any family road trip.

Entertainment

Nothing says entertainment like three rows of comfortable seating and a wide window to look out of on the road. Some families want more, especially those with children who grow bored of the scenery rather quickly. Fortunately, Honda is prepared for that.

An available Rear Seat Entertainment System with wireless headset capability makes every trip a quiet and enjoyable one. The system includes a DVD player with rear audio display controls so parents can stay in control at all times.

The nine-inch screen features an ultrawide resolution and an HDMI input that’s used for modern video game systems and several other entertainment devices.

Convenience

Cleaning up after a family vacation can be a hassle. Kids somehow manage to get crumbs, dirt, and other debris throughout the vehicle. Getting a vacuum into the Odyssey is easy, but maneuvering properly could be difficult. That’s why Honda thought ahead. The HondaVAC® is a built-in vacuum cleaner that makes cleaning a stress-free chore.
