April 1st, 2013 by

2013 Honda CR-VHow’s this for a good report card? U.S News and World Reports has named both the 2013 Honda CR-V and the 2013 Honda Odyssey to their annual list of “Best Cars for Families.” By using a methodology that combines a weighted average based on each car’s hard statistics with opinions from experts in the automotive industry, the popular publication deemed that both the CR-V and the Odyssey pulled ahead of the competition this year.

The 2013 Honda CR-V

The reliable, good-looking CR-V crossover beat out every other model in its segment to take the “Best Compact SUV for Families” honor. However, the new Honda CR-V is no stranger to the awards podium, having already won accolades for its safety. This IIHS Top Safety Pick and NHTSA 5-Star Overall Vehicle consistently performs well in crash tests, and that combined with its impressive list of standard safety features such as a rear backup camera and electric parking assist make it the perfect choice for carrying your precious cargo.

Roomy, comfortable seating, plenty of cargo space, and groundbreaking high-tech standard features round out the CR-V’s qualifications as the best family vehicle in its class.

The 2013 Honda Odyssey Minivan

Honda’s ever-popular 8-seat minivan, the 2013 Odyssey, had a similarly great showing in the U.S News and World Reports rankings, earning top honors as the “Best Minivan for Families.” Like the CR-V, it boasts an impressive 5-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA and a Top Safety Pick designation from the IIHS.

Also like the CR-V, the Odyssey includes a multitude of impressive standard features such as the aforementioned backup camera, Bluetooth HandsFree compatibility, and an LCD infotainment display screen called the i-MID.

The Odyssey also earns bragging rights in fuel economy. In fact, at an EPA estimated 28 mpg highway*, the Odyssey Touring gets better gas mileage than any other 8-seater minivan on the market.
