    Top Rated Cars for Families in Sioux Falls, SD

Looking for a family car or SUV in Sioux Falls where everyone has enough room and personal space but still keeps you safe on the road? Or maybe your family is growing and your current vehicle just isn’t big enough? Maybe it’s time to upgrade your ride to something newer or with less miles? There are many reasons why families in Sioux Falls search for a newer, better, or safer vehicle. No matter your situation, the lineup of vehicles Vern Eide Honda provides has options for scenarios like a new ride for teenagers, upgrading to a minivan or larger SUV, or something that brings more reliability and long-term value. As your Honda dealership in Sioux Falls, we have quite a few options for drivers to review. If a new vehicle isn’t your cup of tea, no worries because we carry pre-owned vehicles for sale in Sioux Falls as well.

Our first recommendation is to make a list of what features or amenities are important for your family. How far you drive each day might lead you to consider a hybrid, possibly something like a Honda Accord. How many passengers you have on a typical Wednesday might lead you to a larger SUV like the Honda Pilot where you can seat about seven passengers easily. If you have younger children and have car seats a minivan like the Odyssey might offer the most convenient for everyone.

When it comes to safety, Honda is definitely no stranger. Year after year, Honda automobiles are notorious for their high safety ratings from IIHS or NHTSA, which recognize vehicles for their high scores for crash-safety performance. In 2019, the Honda Ridgeline was the only pickup awarded 2019 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK* rating. For many families, the Ridgeline is a great vehicle option for those looking for adventure and functionality. Adding to the 2019 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK* award-winning lineup was the Honda Odyssey, another family favorite. But the list for the Odyssey continues with a few other major milestone awards: Best Minivan for Families from U.S. News & World Report and 2020 KBB Best Minivan. Vern Eide Honda has a great lineup of both Honda Ridgelines and Honda Odyssey minivans for sale.
