When it comes to family-hauling duties, "the 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport offers a happy medium of more overall room than a compact SUV but with a price lower than larger, three-row vehicles," said Cars.com reviewer David Thomas.

The three-row crossover class is really heating up, with redesigns from Honda and Kia for 2016. Kia's new Sorento should be more appealing to families with its new safety rating: The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety just named it a Top Safety Pick, earning the top score of good across all areas of testing, including the tough small-overlap front crash test.

The last-generation Sorento failed the small-overlap front test, which mimics when the front corner of the vehicle strikes another vehicle or an object such as a tree or a utility pole. IIHS also said that in the previous model, the side curtain airbags didn't deploy, causing severe injuries to the crash-test dummy.

There's no doubt that Honda did a terrific job in redesigning its family-focused three-row crossover. The new Pilot will go on sale this summer and rejoins a competitive field, including strong-sellers such as the Chevrolet Traverse and Hyundai Santa Fe.

We were impressed by just how significantly Honda departed from the previous generation's boxy yet unique look. The new styling seems like it will maintain the previous Pilot's standout visibility.

The 2016's design diverges from its past, and it now looks like it has been assimilated into stereotypical suburbia styling. See how closely the 2016 Pilot resembles two of its future competitors.

HondaFamily1

We like to think we know the family-car shopper. Besides our diligence in checking just how well child-safety seats fit in new vehicles, we also happen to be a staff with a lot of kids of various ages at home. That's one of the reasons the redesigned 2016 Honda Pilot, unveiled at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show, is so interesting to us.

To be a great family car — like the 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe, winner of Cars.com's Family Car of the Year — it needs to not only handle all the kids' wants and needs, but also take care of the adults. After all, it's important that Mom or Dad remain sane on even the shortest drives.

More Details and Photos of the New 2016 Acura RDX (32 photos)

16AcuraRDXDetails

Acura's updates to the 2016 RDX import a healthy dose of styling from the brand's other recently updated models. Five years ago I'd be groaning after reading that, but Acura's latest design direction is on the up and up as the luxury brand distances itself from the exaggerated shield/beaked designs of the past.

The 2016 RDX adds a more dimensional, attractive shape to the compact SUV with new front and rear styling for a more contemporary look. One of the stand-out features of the 2016 are the new jewel-eye LED headlights, which are becoming a staple of the brand and feature LED low and high beams and LED "light pipe" accents. Acura's wild LED projector headlights sparkle even when they're off and are standard equipment on the RDX.
