The 2019 Honda Odyssey and 2019 Honda Accord have both been named as the best in their segments in US News & World Report’s 2019 “Best Cars for Families” awards.

The 2019 Odyssey was ranked highest in the minivan category for the ninth year in a row—in other words, it hasn’t failed to win the award since the award’s creation. The Accord, which has earned major industry acclaim since its redesign for 2018, was named the best midsize car.

That brings Honda’s tally of awards to 26 since the “Best Cars for Families” awards were launched in 2011, making it the most successful brand by far. The next closest only has 10 vehicle awards.

To determine the winners, US News & World Report evaluates new vehicles based on seating and cargo volume, safety and reliability ratings, available family-friendly features, and professional automotive reviews.

“The Odyssey is a terrific vehicle that makes a great choice for minivan shoppers,” says US News & World Report. “It costs a bit more than some of its competitors, but many would argue it’s worth the money.”

As for the accord, it was praised for its “solid performance chops,” abundant list of standard safety tech, and upscale, roomy cabin. “The 2019 Accord is an outstanding midsize car that is both practical and fun,” reads the US News & World Report review for the car. “It has one of the best combinations of quality and value in its class. The icing on the cake is its high-quality cabin and great fuel economy estimates.”
