• 2016 Honda Odyssey Family

    The family car has come much further than the mid-size sedan, though vehicles like the 2016 Honda Accord are still quite popular among Albany area families. Honda has a diverse selection of family-friendly vehicles, including sedans, crossovers, and minivans.

    Before we get started, we want to let you know that three of these models have earned a special distinction from Kelley Blue Book; the Accord, Odyssey, and CR-V all made KBB.com’s list of the 15 Best Family Cars for 2015.*

    Let’s take a look at which Honda models in particular will serve your family well.

Family Cars from Honda

2016 Honda Accord

The mid-size sedan is an excellent option for the family on the go who doesn’t have the need to seat half a soccer team or tow a trailer. With seating for up to five and more than enough space to stretch out, the 2016 Honda Accord is an ideal vehicle for the family with a couple of kids and a dog.

One of the biggest advantages of the Accord is its available Honda Sensing safety package, which includes:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Lane Keeping Assist
  • Lane Departure Warning

In addition to standards like a multi-angle rearview camera and a modern complement of airbags, the Honda Sensing system gives the driver access to key safety and accident prevention features. 2016 Accord models equipped with Honda Sensing have even earned the coveted 2015 Top Safety Pick+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The NHTSA granted the 2016 Accord Sedan a Five-Star Overall Vehicle Safety Rating as well.


With six different trims on the sedan and five on the coupe, we’re confident there’s an Accord with the latest in tech gadgets and comfort features for you.


2016 Honda Pilot

On the other end of the spectrum from the Accord is the highly capable and incredibly spacious 2016 Honda Pilot. The Pilot can seat as many as eight passengers and has five different trim levels to choose from, with all-wheel drive available on them all.

These are just some of the available features and accessories that make the Pilot shine as a family SUV:

  • Roof racks for luggage, bikes, skis, and more
  • Towing capacity of 3,500 pounds (5,000 pounds on AWD models)
  • Available rear DVD entertainment system
  • As much as 153.1 cubic feet of passenger space (or up to 109.0 cubic feet of cargo room)

Because the Pilot is a Honda, it’s engineered for safety as well, and features a standard multi-angle rearview camera and an Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure. It has earned a 2015 Top Safety Pick+ on models equipped with the new Honda Sensing suite of accident prevention features.


If yours is a family on the go, one that likes to go out camping or fishing on the weekends, or you need the family vehicle to double as a work truck on occasion, the Pilot is just for you.


2016 Honda Odyssey

The minivan has long been considered the vehicle for large or growing families, and like the Pilot, the 2016 Honda Odyssey is a spacious family car with seating for up to eight. With six different trims, including the brand-new Special Edition trim, the Odyssey has more than enough space and features for the average family.

Highlights include:

  • Available DVD entertainment system for rear passengers
  • The new HondaVac vacuum cleaner
  • Multiple power outlets and USB ports for charging gadgets
  • Up to 172.6 cubic feet of passenger space (or up to 148.5 cubic feet of cargo room)
  • Five car-seat anchors, letting you secure the kids wherever convenient
  • One-motion 60/40 split-folding rear Magic Seat


To give you an idea of the Odyssey’s level of safety, not only does each model come with a multi-angle rearview camera and child-proof rear doors, amenities like Honda LaneWatch, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, collision mitigation braking, and more are all available. The NHTSA has ranked the 2016 Odyssey as a Five-Star Overall Safety Rating vehicle, making it a smart choice for a safe minivan.


2016 Honda CR-V

Having a tough time deciding between an SUV and a sedan? With the 2016 Honda CR-V, you don’t have to. Enjoy the tall ride and physical capabilities of an SUV like the Honda Pilot with the smaller size and higher fuel economy of a vehicle like the Accord. With seating for up to five, the CR-V has a foot in both worlds, and that makes it one of the most versatile family cars on the road.

The latest model has five different trim levels for drivers to choose from, with plenty of family-friendly features including:

  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink to stream everyone’s favorite music
  • Pandora Internet Radio compatibility to let each family member bring up their favorite custom radio stations
  • Available roof rails for camping, luggage, or sporting equipment


The CR-V also has the new Honda Sensing suite of safety features available, like the Accord and the Pilot. 2016 CR-V 2WD Touring models come standard with those driver-assistance features and have earned a 2015 Top Safety Pick+ award from the IIHS.


2016 Honda HR-V

The newest family car in the lineup, the 2016 Honda HR-V lets drivers enjoy the ride height and design of a crossover utility vehicle like the CR-V or the Pilot with the benefits of a smaller family car like the Accord when it comes to fuel economy.

The small family in need of a spacious new crossover will love what the HR-V has to offer, including:

  • Standard rear Magic Seat for easy switching between cargo and passengers
  • Available Honda LaneWatch lane departure warning system
  • Honda satellite-linked navigation for those family road trips
  • Available roof rails and cargo accessories when packing for a long trip

While the HR-V looks sleek and slim, it is built on the Fit platform and might as well be bigger on the inside with up to 100.1 cubic feet of passenger space and as much as 57.6 cubic feet of cargo room. The Magic Seat even lets you fold up the rear seats for tall cargo or taking Fido to the vet.


The NHTSA has awarded the 2016 HR-V a Five-Star Overall Vehicle Safety Rating.
