The minivan segment has always been geared toward growing families, but some models have evolved more than others to meet the needs of today’s parents. Take for example the Honda Odyssey, which was recently honored in the U.S. News & World Report Best Cars for Families awards for the fourth straight year, thanks to its unique features, intuitive design and responsive-yet-efficient ride.
U.S. News determined its 2014 Best Cars for Families awards by looking at how each vehicle fared in automotive reviews and safety and reliability ratings, as well as evaluating the model’s interior space and available family-friendly features. Topping the Minivan segment, the 2014 Honda Odyssey won over auto critics with its impressive 28-mpg highway fuel economy, its surprisingly crisp handling and its well-designed cabin with clever options like a built-in HondaVAC vacuum that can make quick work of crushed Cheerios in the back seat. When it comes to crashworthiness, the 2014 Odyssey is the only minivan with a 2014 Top Safety Pick+ designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), and it also boasts a 5-Star Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
“Safety is of course very important for a family vehicle, but elsewhere, the Honda Odyssey doesn’t bow to conventions about what a minivan should be, and because of that, parents actually get a satisfying ride, a smartly designed interior and cost savings at the gas pump,” said Mike Antosca, general manager of AutoFair Honda of Plymouth, a Massachusetts Honda dealer. “One of the big reasons that the Odyssey keeps on being named the best minivan for families is that it feels the least like a traditional minivan when you’re behind the wheel.”
After finishing last year as America’s best-selling minivan among individual buyers, the Odyssey continues to gain sales momentum in 2014. Sales of Honda’s minivan were up by 5 percent in February compared to the same month year, totaling 8,945 units. Year-to-date, the Honda Odyssey has moved 10 percent more models than it did in the same period in 2013, selling 16,824 units.
