Which Honda is Best for Jacksonville Families?

When it comes to choosing the right vehicle for your family, there are several aspects to consider, including family size, safety features, cargo needs, and, of course, family-friendly features. So, it’s perhaps not surprising that Jacksonville families often turn to SUVs, crossovers, and the tried-and-true minivan to meet these needs. If your family’s needs are exceeding what your current ride is offering, there are a few new Honda models that offer an ideal combination of these requirements.

Honda CR-V

The Honda CR-V is a great choice for smaller, active families. Its spacious interior volume comfortably accommodates five people and offers an immense amount of cargo capacity for its class—39.2 cubic-feet behind the rear seats, and nearly 76 cubic-feet of max capacity with the seats flipped down. EX models and above come standard with a full suite of advanced safety features, a turbocharged engine, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto infotainment. Choose the Touring trim for features like a hands-free lift gate, navigation, and roof rails.

Honda Pilot

For larger families, the Honda Pilot seats up to eight occupants, or seven with optional second-row captain’s chairs. It offers nearly 85 cubic-feet of max cargo capacity, and several advanced driver aids on the base LX trim level, including: Adaptive Cruise Control, Collision Mitigation Braking System, Road Departure Mitigation System, and Lane Keeping Assist System.

Available family-centric features include:

  • the CabinTalk in-car PA system, which allows the driver to communicate with rear seat passengers via the speakers, without needing to raise their voice
  • One-Touch second-row seating, which makes for easy access to the third row
  • and the Copilot with Cabin Control system lets passengers control music and make climate adjustments using their smartphone.
Honda Odyssey

The ultimate family-friendly vehicle is, of course, the minivan, and the Honda Odyssey is no exception. The Odyssey seats eight people (or seven with captain’s chairs) and offers nearly 40 cubic-feet of space in the cargo well behind the rear seats. The EX trim and above get the Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety features and driver assistance technologies. Available family-focused features include the CabinTalk PA system, a Rear Entertainment System, CabinControl, Magic Slide second row seating, and the CabinWatch night vision in-car camera system.
