Consumer Reports has released its Top 10 Picks of 2015, choosing the best of the best in several segments, ranging from compacts to SUVs (no trucks, though). Based on the criteria of performance, reliability, and safety, the consumer advocacy publication chose the Honda Odyssey as its pick for Best Minivan.

Calling it “one of the best values on the market,” Consumer Reports praised the Odyssey’s driving experience as being a cut above the rest.

“The Odyssey rides and handles better than some family sedans; it’s actually enjoyable to drive,” CR writes. “This is the best vehicle Honda makes, a living room on wheels that can take corners with confidence. There’s flexible seating for up to eight crumb crunchers, and an optional built-in vacuum to clean up after them.”

While the vehicle’s reliability was only rated as “average” (three stars out of five), the Odyssey’s good crash test scores were listed as a point of pride for the minivan.
