Parents, Edmunds name 10 Best Family Cars for 2014

From Budget-Friendly Wheels to Sports-Equipment Haulers, a Car to Fit the Needs of Every Type of Family

NEW YORK, NY —For the seventh year in a row, Parents magazine and car-shopping site Edmunds.com are revealing their list of the year’s 10 Best Family Cars, a trusted guide for moms and dads who are in the market for a new car. Car experts from both organizations examined hundreds of vehicles and whittled the list to the safest, most family-friendly subcompacts cars, large SUVs and everything in between. All the cars share the features that make daily family journeys easier, such as reliability, impressive mileage and ample cargo capacity.

“Whether they’re taking a summer road trip or just making a grocery run, families expect a lot from their vehicles,” says Parents Editor-in-Chief Dana Points. “Safety is every parent’s top priority, and we’re excited by how many manufacturers are now offering blind-spot mirrors and collision-avoidance systems in addition to multiple airbags and government-required electronic stability control.”

The list includes choices for everyone, from budget-conscious environmentalists to big families seeking more space. “The 10 Best Family Cars of 2014” appears in the July issue of Parentsmagazine and online at www.Parents.com/best-family-cars.

“Every year we test drive hundreds of cars, crossovers and SUVs,” says Edmunds.com Editor in Chief Scott Oldham. “We evaluate each vehicle from top to bottom, from safety and fuel economy to its performance, comfort and cup holders. We do this to save parents time during the car-shopping process and make it easier for them to buy the right vehicle to haul their family and their stuff.”

According to Parents and Edmunds.com, “The 10 Best Family Cars of 2014” (with starting prices) are:

 BUDGET

  • Mazda3 ($17,740)
  • Ford Fiesta ($14,925)

 HYBRID

  • Toyota Prius ($25,010)

 SEDANS

  • Mazda6 ($21,785)
  • Honda Accord  ($22,745)

 WAGON

  • Subaru Outback ($24,320)

CROSSOVER

  • Nissan Rogue ($23,650)

 SUVs

  • Hyundai Santa Fe ($30,750)
  • Chevrolet Traverse ($31,670)

 MINIVAN

  • Honda Odyssey ($29,655)

Technology made a big impression on Parents and Edmunds.com editors. From lane departure warnings to the Honda Odyssey’s popular built-in vacuum, each vehicle offers an affordable technology upgrade for safety or comfort.

A few technology package highlights include:

  • Mazda 3– $2,600 technology package includes Smart City Brake Support, which slows or stops your car when its front laser sensor detects a possible collision with a vehicle or object.
  • Toyota Prius-A $1,500 embedded solar panel roof is an add-on that’s available on most trim levels. It powers a fan to circulate ambient air through the cabin to keep your car cool in the hot sun.
  • Honda Accord– Honda’s LaneWatch, which is available on the $25,670 EX trim level, helps you check your right-side blind spot for pedestrians, cars and other objects. When the driver engages the right turn signal, a camera in the passenger side door mirror activates, sending a wide-angle view of the right rear area to your in-vehicle display.

Ram 1500, Tesla Model S, Santa Fe, Foresters are new top picks in Consumer Reports annual list

RAM 1500 & TESLA MODEL S AMONG NEW WINNERS IN CONSUMER REPORTS’ 2014 TOP PICKS LIST

Ram 1500 pickup first Chrysler model to make list in 16 years

YONKERS, NY — In its annual Top Picks list, Consumer Reports has crowned four new vehicles—the Hyundai Santa Fe, Ram 1500, Subaru Forester, and Tesla Model S—with the top honor in each of their respective categories.

For the first time in 16 years, a Chrysler earned a spot on the list with the Ram 1500 nabbing best Pickup Truck, a category that had taken a hiatus in 2013 because Consumer Reports had not yet tested two newly-released vehicles in that segment, the extensively updated Ram 1500 and the redesigned Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra. The last Chrysler vehicle to earn Consumer Reports’ Top Pick honors was the 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

“The competition in the marketplace has grown fierce. There was a time when a handful of brands dominated our Top Picks list, but in recent years we’ve seen a more diverse group make the cut,” said Rik Paul, Consumer Reports’ automotive editor.

Consumer Reports’ 2014 Top Picks list, Car Brand Report Cards and more from the annual auto issue were released at a press conference today before the Washington Automotive Press Association (WAPA) in Washington, D.C. For more details and videos of the Top Picks, visit Consumer Reports’ 2014 Autos Spotlight.

The redesigned Subaru Forester knocked the Honda CR-V from the top of the Small SUV category, and the Hyundai Santa Fe took top honors in the Midsized SUV category.

Although pricey, the Tesla Model S nabbed Consumer Reports’ Top Pick for Best Overall vehicle for its exceptional performance and its many impressive technological innovations.

For the 11th consecutive year and 13th overall, the Toyota Prius reigns as Consumer Reports’ Top Pick for Green Car. The only other vehicle since 2001 to be named a Top Pick in the Green Car category was the Honda Civic Hybrid—which took the honor in 2003. The Prius continues to offer the best fuel economy, at 44 mpg overall, of any five-passenger, non-plug-in vehicle.

For the second year in a row, the Audi A6 and  the  BMW 328i  top  the  Luxury  Car  and  Sports Sedan categories respectively. Until last year, neither carmaker had a Top Pick in more than 10 years. The A6 was praised as a joy to drive and the 328i touted for setting the standard for sports sedans.

Consumer Reports’ Top Picks are the best all-around models in their categories; chosen from more than 260 vehicles the organization has recently tested. Top Pick models must meet CR’s stringent criteria in three areas: road test, reliability, and safety. They must rank at or near the top of their category on overall road test scores; they must have earned an average or better predicted-reliability Rating, based on problems Consumer Reports’ subscribers reported on 1.1 million vehicles in the latest survey; and they must perform adequately if tested in crash or rollover tests by the government or the insurance industry.

The Honda Odyssey and Subaru Impreza round out Consumer Reports’ Top Picks List. The Honda Odyssey, Top Pick Minivan, is praised as the most complete family vehicle one can buy also offering decent fuel economy. For the fourth consecutive year, the Subaru Impreza has been named Top Pick Compact Car, with both the sedan and hatchback versions praised for their compliant ride and impressive fuel economy for all-wheel-drive cars.

Consumer Reports’ 2014 Top Picks By Category:

BEST OVERALL: Tesla Model S ($89,650)  This electric luxury vehicle offers blistering acceleration, razor-sharp handling, a compliant ride, and a versatile cabin with room for a small third-row seat. This technological tour de force, while pricey, is brimming with innovation and offers a 225-mile driving range and 5-hour charges with Tesla’s special connector.

MIDSIZED SEDAN: Honda Accord (4-cyl.) ($23,270)  This roomy, well-equipped, and competitively priced sedan gets a lot right and squeezes out an impressive 30 mpg overall and 40 on the highway which is as good as the tiny Honda Fit subcompact. Handling is agile, although the ride isn’t quite as comfortable as that in some competitors.

COMPACT CAR: Subaru Impreza  (sedan, $21,345; hatchback, $22,345)  This all-wheel-drive vehicle gives a lot for its affordable price. Both sedan and hatchback versions are well-rounded packages. They deliver nimble handling and an impressively compliant, absorbent ride that’s among the best in its class. For an AWD car, fuel economy is also commendable.

GREEN CAR: Toyota Prius ($26,750)  There’s no shortage of hybrids on the showroom floor; however none can match the combination of affordability, practicality, and fuel efficiency that the Prius delivers—which is why it leads in this category for the 11th year in a row. Its 44 mpg overall is still the best Consumer Reports has measured in any five-passenger, non-plug-in vehicle. And its roomy interior and hatchback versatility make it practical.

LUXURY CAR: Audi A6 ($56,295)  A joy to drive with its potent, supercharged V6 engine and super-smooth eight-speed automatic transmission delivering invigorating power; the interior is an impeccably finished, first-class cabin brimming with the latest in high-tech features. And the A6 returns a respectable 22 mpg overall, even with all-wheel drive; the diesel-powered TDI delivers 28 mpg.

SPORTS SEDAN: BMW 328i ($43,195)  The 3 Series has long set the standard for sports sedans. The current, roomier, more luxurious model delivers excellent handling and a high fun-to-drive factor. It’s more fuel-efficient than past models, posting 28 mpg overall—the best among gas-powered models in its class.

SMALL SUV: Subaru Forester ($26,814)  This user-friendly small SUV climbed to the top of the class after its 2014 redesign. With a space-efficient design and large windows and doors, it provides the easiest access and best visibility in its category; plus a class-leading 26 mpg overall and a frugal 35 mpg on the highway.

MIDSIZED SUV: Hyundai Santa Fe ($36,290)  Redesigned for 2013, this seven passenger mid-sized SUV provides a comfortable ride, a quiet interior, a limo-like rear seat, and generous cargo area—yet doesn’t feel too bulky to drive or park and offers a lot of features for the money. Its smooth, refined 290-hp V6 engine delivers a decent 20 mpg overall.

MINIVAN: Honda Odyssey ($36,830)  The most complete family vehicle available—easily carrying up to eight people—features comfy second- and third-row seats that can be configured in a myriad of ways to accommodate a wide range of cargo- and passenger-carrying needs. This minivan is relatively fun to drive and gets decent fuel economy too.

PICKUP TRUCK: Ram 1500 ($42,810)  With its 2013 freshening, the Ram is surprisingly refined and inviting. A coil-spring rear suspension—unique for full-sized pickups—makes it the most comfortable-riding truck. And the whisper-quiet cabin makes it feel like a luxury vehicle, while being able to get its hands dirty when duty calls.

Dog days of summer are when the best car deals heat up

“Shoppers typically will find the perfect blend of discounts during late-August-to-September,” says Edmunds.com Sr. Analyst Jessica Caldwell. “If they wait much longer, they might be able to find better discounts on a new car, but that inventory of those vehicles will be limited.”

BY GERRY MILES

The weather in the coming weeks may make you sweat, during the stereotypical dog days of summer, but car shoppers should sweat the details to get a sweet deal on a new car, according to Edmunds.com.

The reason, says Edmunds, is as temperatures climb – I don’t think global warming has any correlation here – dealers heat up the deal to push the 2013 model leftovers out to make room for new 2014 inventory.

What are the very best deals available on the market right now? Edmunds.com identifies the top new car deals on its Deals of the Month page at: http://www.edmunds.com/deals-of-month.html.

This month’s list includes the:

“Shoppers typically will find the perfect blend of discounts and selection during this late-August-to-September time period,” says Edmunds.com Sr. Analyst Jessica Caldwell. “If they wait much longer, they might be able to find better discounts on a new car, but they’ll find that inventory of those vehicles will be limited.”

Edmunds.com’s recommendation applies specifically to 2013 model year vehicles, which carry bigger discount percentages than all-new 2014 models.

Last month for example, the average discount percentage on a brand new 2013 vehicle was 12.7%, compared to a discount percentage of just 7.7% for a new 2014 vehicle. As a result, Edmunds.com projects that most new cars sold through September will be 2013 models. As 2013 inventories dry up, the proportion of 2014 model-year sales will likely catch up in mid-to-late October.

Some veteran buyers insist that shoppers can maximize discounts early in the week or in the last days of the month.

Honda’s top models lead retail sales segments: RL Polk Survey

2013 Honda Accord EX-L V-6 Sedan.

2013 Honda Accord EX-L V-6 Sedan.

Accord, Civic, CR-V and Odyssey tops in respective segments year-to-date

  • Accord, Civic, CR-V and Odyssey rank #1 in retail sales in their respective segments, according to latest Polk data
  • Honda brand sales of 668,597 up 6.5 percent year-to-date through June
  • More than 98 percent of brand sales to retail customers, protecting resale values; many competitor brands exceed 20 percent in fleet sales

TORRANCE, Calif. – July 29, 2013 – Honda topped all mainstream automakers in percentage of sales to retail buyers during the first five months of 2013, with more than 98 percent1 of the brand’s auto sales in the U.S. sold to individual (non-fleet) consumers, based on new-vehicle registration data from R.L. Polk & Co. With a strong focus on providing long-term value and low cost of ownership to its customers, the Honda brand has increased sales by 6.5 percent in 2013 with 668,597 Honda cars and light trucks finding new homes through the end of June.

Honda’s four best-selling models, AccordCivicCR-V andOdyssey, lead their respective segments2 in sales to retail consumers. Together, these segments represent more than 50 percent of all light-duty vehicle sales in the United States.

“We’re earning our sales growth on the strength of our products and the value they deliver to individual car buyers,” said John Mendel, executive vice president of sales for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “Our strategy is unique among volume automakers, as we are focused on selling vehicles to individual car buyers and not corporate sales to fleets, which is why Honda vehicles have among the lowest cost of ownership and highest resale values in the industry.”

In the highly competitive mid-size segment, where Accord leads retail sales, many high-volume entrants have sold in excess of 30 percent1 of their vehicles to fleet customers thus far in 2013 while over 98 percent1 of Accords were sold to individuals (non-fleet). The 2013 Accord is the most-awarded3 mid-size car when it comes to value. “Honda continues to deliver on the promise that made them the Residual Value Award recipient for 2013,” said Eric Lyman, vice president of Editorial for ALG.

“Honda keeps incentives and fleet penetration low – two actions that heavily impact future values. With high volume models like Accord and CR-V at the top of their respective segments, Hondas hold their value better than any other brand.”

 

’14 Honda Odyssey due at dealers by July 2

2014 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite.

2014 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite.

BY GERRY MILES

When Honda introduced the Odyssey in NY years ago, the press kit featured King Kong climbing a skyscraper as it overtook Gotham. It turned out to be an apt description as perhaps the standard-bearer of minivans is oft considered to be the Honda.

The 2014 edition is slated next month in dealerships with a raft of styling changes, a 6-speed automatic in every trim level to boost fuel efficiency and the world’s first in-car vacuum the HondaVac, allowing everyone to keep the family truck clean.

It will go on sale with a starting MSRP of $28,825, representing only a $150 increase in base price for a thoroughly revised Odyssey equipped with additional standard features for increased convenience.

The rest of the press release with all the minutiae can be found below.

With the addition of a standard 6-speed automatic transmission paired to the 3.5-liter, 24-valve, SOHC, i-VTEC V-6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management (VCM), the Odyssey further solidifies its place as the fuel economy leader in the minivan segment with all 2014 models offering EPA fuel economy ratings of 19/28 mpg1city/highway (model-year 2013 EPA ratings were 18/27 mpg on all models except Touring and Touring Elite).Further enhancing occupant safety, the 2014 Odyssey receives the next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure. The reinforced frontal structure improves frontal crash energy management through a wider range of offset and oblique collision modes. With the revised structure, the 2014 Odyssey is anticipated to earn the highest rating of TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), including a GOOD rating in the stringent new IIHS small overlap frontal collision test. The Odyssey is expected to be the first minivan to earn a TSP+ from IIHS.

For 2014, the Odyssey continues with its successful model grade strategy: five different available trim levels include the well-equipped base LX model, EX, the leather-trimmed EX-L, the feature-packed Touring, and the line-topping Odyssey Touring Elite. A DVD Rear Entertainment System (RES) and Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ with Voice Recognition3 are available on EX-L models and above.

New exterior colors for 2014 are Modern Steel Metallic and Obsidian Blue Pearl. Interior colors include Beige, Gray and Truffle for the new high-quality fabric that features a refined and dynamic new weave pattern on LX and EX models, while the EX-L, Touring and Touring Elite feature leather upholstery. A full range of genuine Honda accessories is also available.

New Features by Trim Level:

Odyssey LX:

  • 6-speed automatic transmission

  • Expanded View Driver’s Mirror
  • One-touch turn signals

  • HondaLink™ featuring Aha™ compatibility
  • Wiper-linked headlights

  • HondaVAC™ integrated vacuum system
  • HD Radio™
  • Neural 5.1 Surround™ audio

Advancing the Odyssey
In redesigning the Odyssey for 2014, Honda’s goal was to reinforce and expand upon the vehicle’s already great features, including the exceptional value for money that already defines the Odyssey for its target buyers: Gen X and Gen Y families. Odyssey aims to surprise and delight by adding upgrades and amenities, making it once again the top pick among individual buyers.

Powertrain
The 2014 Odyssey features a 3.5-liter, 24-valve V-6 engine producing 248 hp at 5,700 rpm and 250 lb-ft of torque at 4,800 rpm. Honda’s i-VTEC® enhances power delivery while Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM®) helps maximize fuel efficiency and reduce emissions.

With the 2014 model, Honda has targeted best-in-class fuel economy ratings for all trim levels. As a result, the transmission has been upgraded to a 6-speed automatic across the model range, replacing the 5-speed automatic previously found on the LX, EX and EX-L. EPA fuel economy ratings are now 19/28 mpg1 city/highway for all trim levels, up 1 mpg in both city and highway for the LX, EX and EX-L trims. The California Air Resources Board (CARB) emissions certification4 remains an impressive ULEV-2.

Body
Refined and youthful, sporty and advanced, the Odyssey’s refreshed styling adds new premium elements for 2014. Highlights include new black-trimmed headlights, new available fog lights, a new muscular hood, and black-surround grille for an upscale appearance. New body-color matched side mirrors and additional bright chrome trim add to the premium appearance. New rear styling and LED taillights with clear lenses and eye-catching perimeter “light pipes” add to the polished look.

Weight savings come from the use of aluminum for the hood, front fenders and front suspension lower control arms. The LX model features 17-inch steel wheels with premium covers, while EX and EX-L models utilize 17-inch premium aluminum alloy wheels. Touring and Touring Elite models feature 18-inch premium sport aluminum alloy wheels.

The 2014 Odyssey EX, EX-L, Touring and Touring Elite models have a wiper-linked headlight system that automatically turns on the headlights when the front wipers are activated. In addition, new standard one-touch turn signals improve convenience for the driver when making routine lane changes. With this system, one flick of the turn-signal lever provides three blinks of the turn signals – ideal for changing lanes. Pressing the lever past the “click point” provides continuous blinking.

A new keyless entry system with push button start on EX, EX-L, Touring and Touring Elite allows the driver to approach the vehicle, open the door and start the engine – all without touching a key. The system only requires the driver have possession of the key fob. The system also simplifies opening the sliding side doors and tailgate – locking all doors when leaving the vehicle requires only touching the lock button on any door handle.

Interior
Redesigned instrumentation, new trim and fabric, and upgraded electronic features and functionality make the 2014 Odyssey interior ideal for families. Design changes include upgraded meter illumination and interior lighting, chrome-trimmed instrument dials and door handles, a new available 7-inch touch-screen, and a repositioned DVD player for the available Rear Entertainment System. Updated styling and a change from blue to white halo lighting make the instrumentation easier to read. Similar changes make the climate control easier to operate.

All 2014 Odyssey models and trim levels get an Expanded View Driver’s Mirror. The driver’s side mirror provides a 19-percent increase in visible area, offering an enhanced view of objects that might otherwise be hidden in the vehicle’s blind spot. Included on Odyssey EX, EX-L and Touring models, the Honda LaneWatch™ blind spot display provides an expanded rear view of the passenger side roadway. The system uses a camera mounted on the bottom of the passenger door mirror, which when activated by the right turn signal or the signal-stalk LaneWatch™ button, displays a live, 80-degree view of the passenger-side roadway, compared to 18- to 22-degrees typical of a standard door mirror.

A rearview camera is standard on all Odyssey models. Odyssey LX, EX and EX-L models feature a single-angle “Normal View” display, while EX-L Navi, Touring and Touring Elite models have a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with wide, normal and top-down views – all with improved optical quality. All rearview camera systems feature guidelines.

HondaVAC™
The Odyssey Touring Elite features the first minivan in-vehicle vacuum cleaner system, HondaVac™ which is designed to help families keep the minivan interior neat and clean. Engineered for dry use, the HondaVAC™ operates on the vehicle’s 12-volt electrical system, and its performance easily surpasses that of a handheld rechargeable vacuums.

Integrated in the rear cargo area of the vehicle, the HondaVAC™ includes an extendable hose that can reach every corner of the vehicle. Two separate head attachments expand versatility, while a removable debris canister and replaceable filter bag makes maintaining the vacuum easy. To protect the vehicle battery’s state of charge, the HondaVAC™ runs up to eight minutes with the ignition turned to the Accessory setting – or continuously if the engine is running.

Audio & Entertainment
Odyssey EX, EX-L, Touring and Touring Elite models have new intuitive touch panel controls that reduce button clutter on the center stack. An upper 8-inch display and a lower 7-inch display provide a simpler overall interface improving usability.

When paired to a compatible cellular phone, Aha™ and Pandora® interfaces are available on EX, EX-L, Touring and Touring Elite models. XM® Radio is included in EX-L, Touring and Touring Elite models, a HDD audio system comes on the EX-L Navi, Touring and Touring Elite models, and a rear DVD player is standard in EX-L RES, Touring and Touring Elite models. The Touring Elite also features HD Radio and new Neural 5.1 Surround™ audio.

Audio system output is 240 watts for Odyssey LX, 270 watts for EX, EX-L and EX-L RES, and 246 watts for EX-L Navi and Touring. The premium audio system in the Odyssey Touring Elite has 650 watts. All audio systems have seven speakers except for the Touring Elite, which features 12 speakers.

Simplified pairing and enhanced functionality with smart phones improve the Odyssey’s telematics for 2014. HandFreeLink® is included on all models, and Bluetooth® audio streaming, SMS and email functions are available with compatible smartphones. Additional features include a phonebook, call history, speed dial and contact picture. Odyssey EX, EX-L, Touring and Touring Elite include HondaLink™ featuring Aha™ which offers content from hundreds of channels through a tethered compatible smartphone.

The Rear Entertainment System (RES) on the EX-L RES, Touring and Touring Elite models features upgraded control layout and screen quality. This system features improved placement of the DVD player and more intuitive operation for the rear audio controls. Screen resolution is VGA on EX-L RES and Touring models, and the Touring Elite’s upgraded ultra-widescreen offers four times higher resolution.

Safety
With the application of the next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, significant structural changes to the unit-body were made, including more extensive use of high-strength steel in the A-, B- and C-pillars, roof rails, floor rails, front body area, and front subframe. As a result, the front door opening is now stronger, with less chance of deformation in a frontal collision.

The previous Odyssey achieved a top Good rating in IIHS Front Crash, Side Crash, Rear Crash and Roof Crush tests. For 2014, the Odyssey is targeted to add a GOOD rating in the IIHS’s rigorous new Small Overlap Barrier Test and be among the first minivans to receive the highest IIHS rating of TOP SAFETY PICK+.

Newly available on the Odyssey, Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) help the driver indentify potential collision situations. Using the Odyssey’s front camera module, FCW warns of a possible collision with a vehicle detected in front, while LDW notifies the driver of departures from detected lanes5. The two systems are packaged together on Odyssey EX-L, Touring and Touring Elite models, and provide visual and audible warnings.

North American Development and Manufacturing
The Odyssey represents Honda’s robust product development capabilities in North America with its design, engineering and assembly all taking place in the U.S., using domestically and globally sourced parts. Designed in Los Angeles and engineered at Honda R&D America’s in Ohio, the Odyssey is manufactured6 by Honda Manufacturing of Alabama, Inc. Currently, 95 percent of all Hondas sold in the U.S., are built in North America.
