  • Accord, CR-V, Odyssey and Pilot judged best family cars
  • More Honda vehicles selected than any other brand

Four Honda vehicles have been named a 'Best Family Car' by Kelley Blue Book's, the most from any single brand. The 2014 Honda Accord (, CR-V (, Odyssey ( and Pilot ( were honored after testing by the website's editors and real families. The annual list rates vehicles on 'family-approved' attributes like available safety features, comfort and child-friendliness.

"Honda vehicles have long been a top choice for American families, known for providing the kind of safety, features and value that they have a right to expect," said Michael Accavitti, senior vice president of automobile operations for American Honda. "This recognition of four of Honda's top-selling models validates our ongoing efforts to simply build the best vehicles in every segment in which we compete."

Tasked with identifying the twelve best family vehicles, the expert editors started with 21 different vehicles top-ranked in their Expert Ratings in various family-friendly categories and enlisted the help of several families to thoroughly test these family haulers. This approach included analyzing seven sedans, six small SUVs, five midsize SUVs, two minivans and one hybrid wagon, from a total of 11 different brands. The expert editors tallied the results based on participant feedback and compared notes, naming the best of the bunch.
