Two of our very own Honda vehicles at Cleo Bay Honda ranked as the Best Family Cars of 2016 from Parent's Magazine and Edmunds.com! We've been talking about these cars all year, but this recent award really sets in the fact just how astounding these model year cars are. Being named a "family best" is no easy task, and Honda really goes the extra mile in safety and technology features by putting family top of mind. What makes the Pilot and the Civic top family cars in Killeen?
As mentioned, the 2016 Honda Civic was selected as 1 of 10 out of hundreds of vehicles. The Civic is also named the 2016 North American Car of the Year and it's not a coincidence that it's winning so awards – the details are what make the Civic so great. Firstly, it received the highest available safety ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, as well named a Top Safety Pick+ form the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. These awards have to do with the addition of the Honda Sensing™ suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies, available on all trims, making Civic the most affordable new car in America with these advanced safety technologies, including automatic emergency braking (when equipped with optional front crash prevention).
The family-first 2016 Honda Pilot was also on the list of Best Family Cars of 2016. The Pilot is the perfect vehicle for any growing family, as it is as spacious as it is high-tech. The interior was well thought out with a total of 8 available seats, over 109 cubic feet of cargo space, as well as collapsible back seats. The Pilot really won Parent's Magazine over with the next generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure and multi-angle rear view camera. Like the Civic, the Pilot earned top safety ratings from both the NHTSA and IIHS.
Whether you have a family currently or considering starting one, either the 2016 Civic Sedan or the 2016 Honda Pilot are great choices for the top family cars in Killeen. We've always known they were impressive, but now we have the recognition to prove it! Interested in these two amazing vehicles? We'd be happy to set you up for a test drive at Cleo Bay Honda!
