The awards keep stacking up for Honda. Frank Ancona Honda is proud to announce that six Honda models were ranked as Kelley Blue Book’s Best Family Cars of 2016, claiming six of the 16 available spots. Honda is the only automaker to earn awards in each category segment, making it the most recognized brand in Kelley Blue Book’s assessment for 2016. The 2016 Honda Accord, Civic, HR-V, CR-V, Pilot and Odyssey were all highlighted in their respective categories.

Kelley Blue Book created the Best Family Cars list as a resource to make picking the right family vehicle a little less daunting. The KBB staff put all vehicle contenders through extensive tests evaluating overall family comfort, safety and value.

In a Honda press release, Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of sales of the Honda Division, said, “This recognition by the experts at Kelley Blue Book of six of our core models is affirmation that Honda has the best possible choices for families of any size.”

Honda has been dominating the award season this year. The 2016 Honda HR-V was named 2016 Green SUV of the Year. The 2016 Honda Civic was named Kelley Blue Book’s Overall Best Buy for 2016, as well as the 2016 North American International Car of the Year. Plus, earlier this month, five Honda models were honored as the 2016 Best Cars for the Money by U.S. News & World Report.

Michael Accavitti, senior vice president of automobile operations for American Honda, said in a press release, “Honda vehicles have long been a top choice for American families, known for providing the kind of safety, features and value that they have a right to expect. This recognition of four of Honda’s top-selling models validates our ongoing efforts to simply build the best vehicles in every segment in which we compete.”
