We certainly weren’t kidding about this being award season, which is why we’re happy to announce a few more winners today. In fact, exactly one year and a couple days ago, we announced that the 2016 Honda Civic, Accord, HR-V, CR-V, Pilot and Odyssey were all considered Kelley Blue Book Best Family Cars of 2016. Today, we’re here to update that list with the 2017 Honda award winners. While the list isn’t quite as extensive this year as it was last year, there is a very clear reason for this laid out in the KBB article announcing this year’s winners.

“Looking at sales trends, soccer fields and school drop-off lines it’s clear that today’s family car is actually an SUV. And the family-friendliest vehicle of them all, the minivan, continues to appeal with its purpose-built practicality. Reflecting this continued shift, this year’s list of Best Family Cars is our first without a single sedan.”
