Don Davis Honda Applauds Three 2012 Honda Vehicles to Make List of Best Family Cars of 2012
Annual list of Best Family Cars Includes 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid, Honda Odyssey, Honda CR-V, available at Don Davis Honda in Buffalo.
Buffalo, NY (I-Newswire) June 21, 2012 - Parents magazine and Edmunds.com have collaborated to compile the fifth annual list of Best Family Cars. Several factors were considered, including gas mileage, perceived value, safety, and kid-friendliness. Honda is honored with three vehicles on the list.
Representing Honda in the High Mileage category, the 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid was called “a pleasure to drive” and “sleek inside and out”. Reviewers like the digital display for mileage, speed, radio controls and hands-free phone activity. With standard USB jack and Bluetooth capability and optional on-board navigation and leather seats, the Civic is customizable to the needs of every family. Safety features include stability control, antilock brakes (four-wheel discs with the EX and Si), front-seat side-impact airbags and side curtain airbags, earning the 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid designation as IIHS Top Safety Pick.
The most fuel-efficient of the perennial favorite Civic line, the 2012 Hybrid boasts EPA ratings of 44 city/44 highway/44 combined mpg, an increase of 3 mpg over the outgoing model. With a base price of $27,000, this is among the most affordable hybrids in its class.
The 2012 Honda CR-V takes honors in the Crossover category. A long-time Edmunds favorite, the 2012 model scores more points for interior design that makes it more like a minivan – but only on the inside! Its outside lines are called “fluid and organic”, an improvement over the outgoing model.
Favorite interior features of reviewers are the roomy cabin, abundant cup holders, rear arm rests, and rear seats that fold flat with a single touch to make room for cargo. Safety features of the 2012 Honda CR-V include antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, active front head restraints, front side airbags and side curtain airbags, and a standard backup camera.
Fuel efficiency ratings are 23 city/31 highway/26 combined mpg for front-wheel drive and 22/30/25 for AWD, making the 2012 CR-V one of the most fuel-efficient in its segment.
In the Large Vehicle category, the 2012 Honda Odyssey wins for its ability to “corner like a midsize car” while allowing flexible seating for eight passengers and loads of cargo space. Favorite features include sliding second-row captain’s chairs, an optional middle seat in the second row, and easy-to-stow third row seats. The new model offers more leg room for taller passengers, while the side entry is low enough to allow children to enter on their own. Optional features like rear-seat video entertainment systems, built-in beverage coolers, power lift gate, built-in beverage cooler, and backup cameras leave little to be desired in family transportation.
Standard safety features of the 2012 Honda Odyssey include antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, active front head restraints, front side-impact airbags and side curtain airbags that cover all three rows. Test scores earn the Odyssey the rating of IIHS Top Safety Pick.
Fuel efficiency estimates for the five-speed automatic models are 18 city/27 highway/21 combined mpg, while six-speed transmission models are EPA rated at19/28/22.
