Odyssey and CR-V Named Best Cars for Families
Odyssey and CR-V Named Best Cars for Families! Recently, U.S. News & World Report‘s released the 2018 “Best Cars for Families” awards and named the 2018 Honda Odyssey and CR-V as the Best Minivan and Best Compact SUV respectively. This marks the 8th consecutive year that the Odyssey has been recognized and the 4th consecutive year the CR-V has been highlighted. U.S. News & World Report chooses their awards based on safety and reliability ratings, seating and cargo volume, available family-friendly features and professional automotive reviews.
The 2018 Honda Odyssey has won numerous awards this year. U.S. News & World Report writes about the Honda Odyssey, “The new generation of the Odyssey is a home run. Agile handling and a strong V6 engine make the Odyssey a blast to drive, which you probably don’t expect from a minivan. Passengers have ample room to stretch out and get comfortable, and you can haul a lot of cargo. There’s also a long list of features that both kids and adults will appreciate, including a rear entertainment system and an in-cabin camera system. The Odyssey’s outstanding amenities and high-class cabin help make it a great value. That combination of quality and value led to us declaring it our 2018 Best Minivan for the Money. Most minivans are good family vehicles, but the Odyssey’s long list of features, cavernous cabin, and wealth of positive reviews make it one of the best. That’s why we gave it our 2018 Best Minivan for Families award. ”
The 2018 CR-V has also been highly awarded this year and U.S. News & World Report writes about the model, “The 2018 CR-V is one year removed from a full redesign that Honda nailed. An optional turbocharged engine provides good power for all your daily needs, and a soft ride quality should hit the mark for comfort. Inside, the CR-V provides plenty of utility. The base model has few standard features, but there’s ample seating space and class-leading cargo volume. The cabin is awash in quality materials, making every trip a pleasant one. Because the CR-V has the best combination of quality and value in its class, we named it our 2018 Best Compact SUV for the Money. We also named it our 2018 Best Compact SUV for Families thanks to its sizeable cabin, host of safety features, and positive feedback from automotive writers.”
