"All of the features included in our award scoring have either been shown to reduce accidents or make family life easier for our editors when they've tested cars," said Jamie Page Deaton, managing editor of U.S. News & World Report's Best Cars rankings. "We cut through the marketing fluff to focus only on features that can really help families."

Honda garnered four wins, more than any other single brand, for the third year in a row. The HR-V and CR-V offer the most cargo and seating space in their respective classes, while the Pilot boasts good cargo and passenger space for its class, as well as great crash test scores and accident-avoidance technologies like forward automatic emergency braking and lane keep assist. The Odyssey won for the seventh consecutive year.

The CR-V and HR-V are also winners of the 2017 Best Cars for the Money awards due to their combination of excellent quality and long-term value.

What makes a Honda suitable for the whole family? U.S. News based their selections on vehicles with the best combination of positive reviews from professional car critics, safety ratings, space, and available tech features.
