#1 2013 Honda Odyssey
The 2013 Honda Odyssey drives like a dream–assuming that dream is about moving through space easily, quietly, and above all, comfortably.
The Odyssey has room for 7 people and features a maximum cargo capacity of 148.5 cubic feet, which is easily managed with the incredibly versatile seating configurations.
It can also tow up to 3,500 pounds, making excellent use of that 3.5-liter, V6, 248-horsepower engine.
The Odyssey doesn’t have particularly great fuel efficiency (18 mpg city & 27 mpg highway), but it’s a smooth, quiet ride with lots of elbow room… You just have to pick your battles.
Most importantly, though, is that this big-family car has received top scores and grades from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, in areas like frontal-offset, roof-strength, and side-impact crash tests. Comfort and power are good, but safety is key when it comes to family vehicles.
The 2013 Honda Odyssey is a powerful vehicle with a lot of interior room and plenty of safety features, making it our pick for the best car for big families on the market right now.
