Here at Apple Honda, we know that every family is a bit different, and it only makes sense that their cars would be different too. Some families need all the space available in models like the Honda Pilot, while others need a car fuel-sipping hybrid like the Honda Insight. Well, we have good news for you, Long Island drivers - Kelley Blue Book just released their annual "10 Best Family Cars" list, and Honda made the cut. Three times!
Let's start with a vehicle that no family car list is complete without, the Honda Odyssey. We've said it before and we'll say it again: the Odyssey is no ordinary minivan. This recognition from Kelley Blue Book is only one item on a long list of awards and accolades for the Honda Odyssey. MotorWeek gave it their Driver's Choice Award for 'Best Minivan,' ALG gave it their '2012 Residual Value Award for Best Multi-Purpose Vehicle,' KBB has previously recognized it with their Best Resale Value award for a Van, and both the IIHS and NHTSA gave it top safety scores. On top of which, it features a fun-to-drive 248-hp V6 Engine and the type of technology that will keep the kids occupied for long road trips.
Of course, if you're not really the minivan type, there's always a dependable CUV like the all-new Honda CR-V. It's been one of the bestselling Honda models for years, and this year, it's better than ever. Kbb says, "The fourth-generation Honda CR-V offers a more contemporary look and feel...along with even better fuel economy and an improved available Real-Time all-wheel drive system."1 Like the Odyssey, the CR-V boasts top safety ratings from the IIHS, and a long list of accolades from other respected industry experts.
Then there's a car that you might not expect to see on a family car list, because it's a compact. But you'll be happy to know that the 2012 Civic, along with an EPA-estimated 28 mpg city/39 mpg highway,* boasts class-leading interior room and features. Kbb.com applauds the Civic for its comfortable interior with room for five passengers, the innovative i-MID display, and infotainment system.
Of course, the only way to really know which car is best for your family is to stop by the Apple Honda showroom at 1375 Route 58 Riverhead, NY 11901 for a test drive. We're willing to bet that even if you don't choose a Civic, CR-V or Odyssey, you'll find a car here that's perfect for you and your family.
