Honda has a long-standing reputation of producing some of the very best vehicles on the road, including some of the very best family vehicles available. With their exceptional efficiency, smarts, and advanced safety technologies, Honda vehicles regularly deliver on the features most important to families. This June, the all-new 2018 Honda Accord and the 2018 Honda Odyssey were honored with spots on the “10 Best Family Cars 2018” list, which was compiled by Parents magazine and the auto experts at Edmunds.com.
Gaining a spot of the list is no easy feat, as Parents magazine and Edmunds.com carefully compared 300 vehicles to determine their list. They considered family-friendly features and convenience features, safety ratings, and car seat installation, as well as general performance, efficiency, value, and interior comfort.
The all-new 2018 Accord offers exceptional efficiency and handling, along with standard Honda Sensing®, which is a comprehensive suite of innovative safety and driver-assistive technologies designed to help keep you and your passengers safe while on the road.
The Honda Odyssey has long been lauded as among the best – if not the best – family minivan, and the redesigned 2018 model continues to impress. The new Odyssey offers reliable performance, plenty of comfortable seating and space for the family, available Honda Sensing®, and CabinWatch™, which is the auto industry’s first-ever rear-seat camera, allowing you to easily keep an eye on your young ones while in the driver’s seat.
You and your family can find both of these incredible vehicles when you visit Russell Honda.

Honda is reaching new milestones. In particular, the brand recently announced that it has one million vehicles with Honda Sensing® technology on the road right now in the US. Offering next-generation driver-assist safety technology, Honda Sensing® is an unparalleled system. Helping you to reduce damage and claim rates, this technology is the future of driving.
According to Honda, the brand will be providing Honda Sensing® technology standard on all 2022 model-year vehicles. The IIHS, Highway Loss Data Institute, and Honda recently worked together to publish scientific studies to show that Honda Sensing® is incredibly effective in reducing damage to other vehicles and property, and it can even reduce claim rates. Believe it or not, claim rates drop an average of 28% with Honda Sensing®.
“Honda dreams of a collision-free mobile society and the Honda Sensing technology has a crucial role to play in advancing us toward that goal,” said Henio Arcangeli, Jr., senior vice president of the American Honda Automobile Division. “With the rapidly growing population of Honda vehicles applying these technologies, we hope to significantly reduce collisions involving Honda vehicles within the next three to four years.”
Where To Find It
The Honda Sensing® suite includes technologies such as Collision Mitigation Braking System, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Road Departure Mitigation, and Adaptive Cruise Control. You can find this suite standard on current models like the Clarity, the Accord, and the Insight.
