• 2016 Honda Odyssey

    There is so much more to the idea of family cars than the mid-size sedan, with crossovers, SUVs, and minivans all becoming viable options. Of course, the 2016 Honda Accord still holds true to those family sedan values while being a modern, competitive car in the midsize class.

    With Kelley Blue Book recently adding four Honda vehicles to their 15 Best Family Cars of 2015* list, we thought it would be a great time to profile the five family vehicles we think West Michigan drivers and families will enjoy the most.

Honda Family Cars

2016 Honda Accord

Whether your family is small or just getting started, there are few sedans that offer the practicality and affordability of the Accord while outfitting you with some of the latest in modern technology and safety amenities. The 2016 Honda Accord is a great choice for that family with a nice house and 2.5 kids, due in large part to its suite of advanced safety features.

The available Honda Sensing safety features package includes:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Collision Mitigation Braking
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Lane Keeping Assist

That’s in addition to standard features like the multi-angle rearview camera and an array of airbags to keep everyone safe in the event of an accident. The 2016 Accord Sedan is so safe, in fact, that models equipped with the Honda Sensing suite of safety amenities earned a 2015 Top Safety Pick+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) as well as a Five-Star Overall Vehicle Safety Rating** from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The Accord Sedan sports six different trims while the Accord Coupe has five; with plenty of room in the trunk for the family road trip, we think that these 11 models ensure there’s something for every West Michigan family.


2016 Honda Pilot

While the Accord is small and unassuming, some families need something a bit bigger and more capable. That’s where the 2016 Honda Pilot comes in. With seating for up to eight and five trim levels, the Pilot has a range of options that make it an excellent fit for the family that needs a powerful people mover.

Available family-friendly features and accessories include:

  • Roof racks (store luggage, skis, bikes, and more)
  • A towing capacity of as much as 5,000 pounds on AWD models (3,500 pounds on FWD)
  • Rear DVD entertainment system to keep the kids occupied
  • Up to 153.1 cubic feet of passenger space
  • As much as 109.0 cubic feet of cargo storage

The Pilot is a family car engineered by Honda, which means safety is also a priority. In addition to the multi-angle rearview camera, the Pilot’s available Honda Sensing safety features helped earn it the IIHS 2015 Top Safety Pick+ award as well.

If you have a family on the go, one that likes the weekend wilderness adventure or needs an SUV that can double as a light-duty work vehicle, the Pilot is the right choice for you.


2016 Honda Odyssey

Families needing a lot of passenger and cargo space but not requiring the truck-like power of an SUV have been choosing minivans like the 2016 Honda Odyssey for decades. Honda’s latest Odyssey has seating for as many as eight passengers and offers six different trim levels—the new Special Edition even gives drivers access to the HondaVac vacuum cleaner for the first time short of the top-of-the-line Touring Elite trim.

Highlights of the Odyssey include:

  • Spacious seating for seven or eight passengers
  • As much as 172.6 cubic feet of passenger space
  • An expandable cargo hold that can reach up to 148.5 cubic feet
  • Five strategically placed car seat anchors
  • One-motion 60/40 split-folding rear Magic Seat

While these features paint the Odyssey as a versatile minivan, it’s also a safe one. Each model sports a standard rearview camera and child-proof rear doors, and available amenities like forward collision warning and collision mitigation braking helped the minivan earn a Five-Star Overall Safety Rating** from the NHTSA.


2016 Honda CR-V

If you have a hard time choosing between an SUV or a minivan, why not split the difference with the compact yet high-riding 2016 Honda CR-V? It has some of the physical capabilities of a traditional SUV, able to tow up to 1,500 pounds, and it seats up to five comfortably.

With accessories like roof racks for all manner of cargo as well as tech amenities like these, it’s easy to pack up the family and keep them entertained for a long trip.

  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink lets you stream everyone’s music
  • Pandora Internet Radio compatibility means you can let the kids set up their custom radio stations and switch between them on longer drives.

The CR-V is also available with the Honda Sensing safety package like the Pilot and the Accord. In fact, 2016 CR-V 2WD Touring models come standard with those advanced safety features and helped the vehicle earn a 2015 Top Safety Pick+ award from the IIHS.


2016 Honda HR-V

Family cars are constantly being reinvented, and the 2016 Honda HR-V has just hit the streets of West Michigan, giving you an option with the style and ride height of the CR-V but the sleek, city-friendly build of a sedan or small hatchback.

The result is an excellent little crossover for the family on the go with a wide range of standard and available features, such as:

  • Second-row Magic Seat to easily switch between passengers and cargo
  • Honda LaneWatch blind spot monitoring
  • Satellite-linked navigation with traffic routing
  • Roof rails and cargo accessories for long drives

The HR-V certainly looks slim, but its design is based on the Fit platform, giving it as much as 100.1 cubic feet of passenger space and up to 57.6 cubic feet of cargo room. Using the Magic Seat, you can even set tall items directly on the cabin floor for greater convenience.
