KBB Recommends Honda CR-V for Your Family
You’ve got the kids and the dog, and you’re just looking for that perfect car to fit your family. You’ve never really been a fan of the minivan though, and there’s just no need for those small sporty cars anymore. Kelley Blue Book has you covered. According to its 10 Best Family Cars of 2013 list, your answer is the Honda CR-V.
The first qualification that comes to mind is safety. Set your worries aside on this one. The CR-V earns a TOP SAFETY PICK rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) as well as a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). It has even more cred with KBB: it ranked the highest KBB.com 60-Month Residual Value among 10 other cars.
In addition to safety, you won’t have to frequent the pump all the time, either. Under the hood you’ll view a 2.4-liter that pumps out 185 horsepower, bringing you 23 mpg city and 31 mpg highway,* according to EPA estimates. It seats up to five comfortably.
We have plenty more to share about the CR-V, but to expand your options, there were two other Honda models that made its way on the list. If you are actually looking for a minivan but don’t want just any minivan, consider the Odyssey. Also, if you want an option on the smaller side but still roomy on the inside, you have to take a look at KBB’s top-ranked sedan, the Accord.
This blog post is just a tiny piece of the pie when it comes to explaining the benefits of a CR-V as it suits your family lifestyle.
