Chevrolet and Honda both topped a new list ranking the top family vehicles. Included in the list are the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse and the 2018 Chevrolet Malibu. Honda also took two top spots with the Accord and Odyssey minivan.
The list, compiled by Edmunds and Parents magazine, looks at many factors to determine what makes a good family vehicle. In the announcement, Brent Romans, senior analyst at Edmunds, said any eligible vehicle must have a top safety score from NHTSA and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety to be considered.
Other factors looked at include car seat capacity, roomy cabins and cargo space, as well as active safety feature availability. The Traverse overtook competitors like the Ford Explorer and Toyota Highlander with its recent redesign, while judges also lauded the Malibu for its family-friendly interior and functional infotainment system.
