Honda Chosen Among Top 10 of 2010 Top Family Cars
2010 Honda Odyssey
We've always thought an Acura badge would look right at home on the sharply styled, thoroughly refined Honda Odyssey. The most premium-like minivan on the market was also our editors' top pick in a recent segment comparison test, thanks to its ability to package versatility and amenities in a vehicle that is both comfortable and involving to drive.
2010 Honda Accord Crosstour
The 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour is everything we like about the Accord Sedan and more. It shares the same V6 engine, passenger room and overall styling with its sedan counterpart, but boasts almost twice the cargo capacity -- a big win for families -- thanks to its hatchback shape.
Kelley Blue Book Chooses Honda Vehicles as #1 AND #5 Back-To-School Cars for 2010!
The over-achieving Honda Fit majors in affordability and double-minors in flexibility and fun. Available for under $16,000, the Honda Fit offers an acrobatic rear seat that delivers extreme cargo versatility, plus lively handling that can take everything you can squeeze out of the 117-horsepower engine. There's even a Fit Sport that offers a stiffer suspension and paddle shifters (or a five-speed manual).
Back-to-School Car #1
Economics 101: A used Honda Civic is the smartest car purchase you can make. The used car we recommend most often isn't just affordable, reliable, fuel efficient and resale resilient, we also like the way it looks and drives. If you're looking to kickoff the new school year with a solid "A" grade, buy a used Civic.

Honda Accord: 10 10Best Appearances
Also winning 10 trophies over the past decade-among a noteworthy 24 total honors-the Honda Accord continues its reign over the family-sedan class, offering the best complete package and fun-to-drive zeal.What We Said:"By delivering so much more than anyone expects, the Accord has become a perennial bestseller, as well as a 10Best fixture." -January 2001
"It's equally clear that the Accord has evolved steadily to maintain its position as a mainstream pacesetter." -January 2009
Honda S2000: 4 10Best Appearances
Honda's sports car is now just a memory, but the joy and capability baked into this high-revving roadster keep the S2000 among our all-time favorites. Four 10Best titles say that Honda definitely got it right, but we have to wonder: Was this Big H's last hard-core car?What We Said:
"Turn the car loose on a racetrack, and you quickly find an outstanding chassis with tremendous grip, excellent balance, and racy-quick steering." -January 2000"This is a pure sports car - extra virgin, first pressing." -January 2002
Honda Fit: 3 10Best Appearances
The Fit's entry into the U.S. was brilliantly timed by Honda, as the little runabout appeared just as rising fuel prices had us questioning our gas-guzzling way of life. The fun-to-drive spirit, versatility, and extreme value of the Fit have earned it a place in our hearts and three elections to the 10Best pantheon.What We Said:
"Not only is it endowed with an impressive array of standard features and an upscale interior, but its dynamics rival the responses of cars with much fancier pedigrees and price tags." -January 2007"If there's a better combination of thrift, practicality, and fun-to-drive, we haven't seen it yet." -January 2009Read More Here: http://autos.yahoo.com/articles/autos_content_landing_pages/1503/decade-in-review-10best-of-the-aughties/
