The 2014 Honda Accord and Odyssey Named Best Cars for Families

2014 Honda AccordIf you’re looking for a new family vehicle in Central Illinois, just head on down to a nearby Central Illinois Honda dealer for the 2014 Honda Accord or Odyssey. While we’ve praised their ability to serve families since their debut, Parents magazine had just teamed up with Edmunds.com and named them to their list of the Best Family Cars for 2014, and we couldn’t be happier.

What Makes These Honda Models Succeed

We think that one of the main reasons that both of these—and most new Honda models—are good for families comes from their incredible standard features. Without needing to upgrade, you get Bluetooth that lets you stay connected wirelessly while you’re on the road, a high-end touchscreen infotainment system (Honda’s i-MID), a built-in rearview camera (perfect for making sure no kids are running behind as you’re backing up), and more.

The fact that the Accord is one of the roomiest sedans we’ve found is just icing on the cake, and the Odyssey’s ability to haul as many as eight passengers makes it a wonderful choice for families of all sizes.

The Accord and Odyssey lead their segments in the areas that matter most to the family buyer – safety ratings, fuel efficiency, value and innovative features,” said Jeff Conrad, Honda division senior vice president and general manager. “As the top vehicles in their segments in sales to individual buyers, we know families appreciate the hard work we’ve put into making these vehicles value and performance leaders.”

Don’t just take our word for it, though. See how a vehicle like the Odyssey compares to the competition. The Accord does similarly against competing midsize sedans.
