The ‘Best Family Car’ on the Road Isn’t a Car—but It Is a Honda

Many people find that what they consider to be “precious cargo” changes greatly with the passing of years.
A man who, in his youth, once valued a rough-and-tumble pickup truck with poor gas mileage but lots of oomph to pull his toys may now find himself thinking less about horsepower, torque, and towing capacity and more about child door locks and high-tech safety features to protect his family.
A woman who once wanted something small, cute, and sporty to cruise around campus in may find her vehicle priorities now tend toward a practical, roomy, fuel-economical automobile with room for the junior soccer team and a rear-seat entertainment system to keep the kids amused.

As life progresses and individuals find their vehicle needs drastically altering, buying a family-oriented automobile becomes the next logical step.
As you shop for a vehicle that will best accommodate your loved ones’ needs, you’ll find that the best family car isn’t a car at all but a minivan—a minivan that boasts car-like fuel economy, is priced to make moms and dads smile, and is chock-full of both comfort and safety features to keep your family content and protected out on the open road.
It’s time you met the Honda Odyssey.
