What makes a Honda fit for the whole family? U.S. News based their choices on vehicles that have the best combination of automotive reviews, passenger and cargo space, excellent safety and reliability data, and available family-friendly features.

"With the HR-V, CR-V, Pilot and Odyssey all receiving this honor, Honda has a light truck in nearly every size and shape to meet the needs of families," said Jeff Conrad, Honda division senior vice president and general manager. Honda's four award-winners tied for the most awards won by an individual brand.

All four of Honda's award-winners feature high fuel efficiency, largo cargo space, and numerous entertainment options for the whole family. And did we mention that the Odyssey includes a built-in vacuum and a power liftgate for parents on-the-go?

"Expanding the list of Honda vehicles awarded as [2016] Best Cars for Families shows our continued dedication to developing vehicles that fit the needs of family buyers, and we continue to push the envelope to bring families more of what they want in terms of leading safety performance, fuel economy, technology and spacious packaging," added Conrad.
