15 Best Family Cars of 2015

Known for its reliability, safety, and just being good all around, the 2015 Honda Accord has plenty to offer. Recently named Kelley Blue Book's Best Buy of 2015 in the midsize sedan segment, the Accord hits the center of the bull's eye in major components like steering, braking, and handling. However, Honda also paid attention to smaller pieces on the Accord making the sum greater than its parts. An example of this can be seen in features like the gear selector or door handles, each doing its job with ease. It doesn't matter if you're a number-cruncher or like to have the vehicle physically in front of you, the 2015 Honda Accord doesn't disappoint.

Experience Brings Wisdom

With 2015 marking the 40th year the Accord has been sold in the United States, its reputation continues to grow while its reliability is the stuff of legend. This is also good news for the Accord's resale value as it costs less in the long run to keep on the road. The demand for used Accords doesn't see any end in sight, either. Of the three sedans and one wagon that made the final cut in this year's Best Family Car awards program, the Accord stands above each in terms of sportiness. That's not the be-all-end-all though. Where the Accord really excels is in how well it handles day-to-day driving. The CVT mated to a 4-cylinder engine isn't the most potent offering in the Accord's portfolio but your wallet will thank you for not having to stop at the pump as often.

Fuel Sipper

In our 2015 Honda Accord review we said, "its 5-passenger cabin will feel familiar yet sophisticated. The familiar part comes from its roominess, excellent outward vision and easy-to-reach controls. Among the nicer touches is a standard 8-inch screen that sits prominently in the dash to relay audio, phone and navigation information." There's also a hybrid option for those looking to go the greener route although the 4-cylinder variant is no slouch with an EPA rating of 27 city/36 highway/31 mpg combined when equipped with a CVT.
