Family Cars for New England Drivers

New England families in need of a new family car have the majority of the auto market open to them. A mid-size sedan like the Accord may be a great start for a young family, though the CR-V might be a better fit if camping and outdoor adventures are on the agenda. And when that family starts to grow, the Odyssey minivan and Pilot SUV can seat as many as eight passengers.

Family cars need to be safe and spacious while offering high fuel economy to fit into tight budgets, while sporting some kind of entertainment option for the kids. We think Honda has all of the bases covered with these four vehicles, and it’s no wonder they are four of our top sellers.

2016 Honda Pilot

The Honda Accord

The family sedan is never going to go out of style, and the 2016 Honda Accord takes it in bold new directions while still remaining a practical, fuel-efficient, and well-equipped sedan. Available in six different trim levels with your choice of a four-cylinder or V6 engine, Honda has enough different configurations of the Accord Sedan to fit the needs of nearly any family.

2016 Honda Accord

The fuel-efficient 2.4L four-cylinder engine should have little trouble fitting into the family budget: 2016 Accord LX CVT models earn an EPA-estimated 37 highway and 27 city mpg.*

2016 Honda Accord

Seating for as many as five passengers and 103.2 cubic feet of passenger space should allow anyone to be comfortable. The 15.8 cubic feet of trunk space should be plenty to pack for a long vacation, too.

2016 Honda Accord Rearview Camera

Standard safety features like the multi-angle rearview camera combine with the available Honda Sensing driver assistance amenities to make the Accord a smart and safe family car.


Honda Accord Navigation

Keep the kids entertained with features like Pandora Internet radio, which lets them customize their own radio stations, or let them take the reins on the available navigation system with voice controls.

Honda Accord Interior

Available features like leather-trimmed upholstery and heated front seating let you add another level of class to the Accord, bordering on the luxury sedan.


Whether you’re on the everyday commute to school and then to work or heading off on a vacation, the Accord has you covered. Perhaps that’s why the experts at Kelley Blue Book named the 2015 model to their list of 15 Best Family Cars of 2015.**

The Honda CR-V

Do you like the appeal of the Accord but want something that’s a bit more rugged and adventurous? The 2015 Honda CR-V seats up to five, like the Accord, but it expands the passenger and cargo options quite in addition to upgrading the capabilities. Take Honda’s sedan, boost its ride height, and make it comfortable heading off-road thanks to available all-wheel drive, and you have the CR-V.

2016 Honda CR-V

Despite its rugged sensibility, the 2015 Honda CR-V 2WD LX has a fuel-efficient powertrain, earning an EPA-estimated 34 highway and 27 city mpg.*

2016 Honda CR-V

The cabin offers 104.1 cubic feet of passenger space, and the 60/40 split-folding rear seat lets you expand the cargo volume to move large cargo or take one of the kids off to college. Don’t be afraid to load up the available roof racks or attach a trailer (the CR-V can tow up to 1,500 pounds).


2016 Honda CR-V

Available Real Time All-Wheel Drive gives you confidence on rugged terrain and in harsh weather, engaging only when it senses a loss of traction to keep the CR-V fuel efficient.

2016 Honda CR-V

The Touring trim level features the new Honda Sensing safety and driver assistance features that can help alert you to a potential collision before it happens.


The CR-V is no stranger to awards, either. Kelley Blue Book named it to their list of the 15 Best Family Cars of 2015** and U.S. News & World Report named it the Best Compact SUV for the Money and the Best Compact SUV for Families.*** On top of it all, the 2015 Honda CR-V Touring took home a 2015 Top Safety Pick+ award from the IIHS.

The Honda Odyssey

For many, the minivan is the definitive family car, and the 2016 Honda Odyssey‘s six trim levels make us confident that there is a minivan that fits the needs of your family. Larger families – or families that are looking to expand – will love the Odyssey’s spacious interior, with seating for as many as eight passengers and 172.6 cubic feet of passenger space.
The Odyssey also sports some advantages that make it a particularly strong family vehicle choice:

Available entertainment features, including a rear DVD system with wireless headphones, can help make those long drives even easier; just put on the kids’ favorite show so that you can focus on the road.

2016 Honda Odyssey

The new HondaVac vacuum cleaner (found on the Touring Elite and Special Edition trims) lets you sweep up any messes and keep your minivan clean.


For families seeking a mix of practical capabilities and entertainment, we recommend the new Odyssey Special Edition, which includes both the HondaVac vacuum cleaner and the built-in rear entertainment system.

The 2015 Honda Odyssey earned a 2015 Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS and was named the 2015 Best Minivan for Families by U.S. News & World Report.***

The Honda Pilot

The Pilot just reinvigorated the idea of the family SUV with a brand new generation. The 2016 Honda Pilot has five trim levels to choose from and can seat as many as eight passengers in its 152.9 cubic feet of cabin space (with as much as 109.0 cubic feet usable for cargo). Like the Odyssey, it features a wide range of standard and available family entertainment options, but it is able to perform admirably as a work or adventure vehicle:
