2. Honda Odyssey
Hauling a lot of people isn’t always glamorous, so it’s helpful to drop pretenses and give in to the high levels of utility of a minivan. Among the vans on the market, the Odyssey is the best choice out there. Most families value safety over pretty much everything else, and the Odyssey outdoes the competition on safety by achieving a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the NHTSA as well as a Top Safety Pick+ designation from the IIHS. When it comes to interior space, there’s plenty of room for even full-grown adults to sit in the third row without eating their knees, plus the cargo area is ample enough for several suitcases. Going for the top-of-the-line model means you can clean messes up easily on the go, thanks to the standard HondaVAC system. Keeping little ones entertained is easy with the rear-seat entertainment system, which can include a widescreen display that’s easier for third-row occupants to see.
