There’s been somewhat of a decline in the number of American drivers in recent years.

A study last year found that Americans using cars has hit its peak, and another discovered that Americans overall are cutting down on car usage.

The Atlantic also analyzed the two studies, and found that the average American household no longer has two cars in its garage and driveway: “So, technically speaking, the two-car garage is no longer average,” The Atlantic’s Jordan Weissmann wrote.

But for families who are still buying cars, what’s the right option? Is it these driverless cars that have begun popping up? Or is it these new talking cars?

Or is it something else entirely?

Here are 11 cars that are perfect for you and your family:

Honda Accord

The Honda Accord was ranked by as one of the top sedans for families. Not only is it a low $22,745, but it’s got quite the trunk space — good enough for “two suitcases plus a stroller and a Pack 'n Play,” reported. The car’s touch screen also offers drivers a look at the sides of the roads, too, giving total safety to the driver.

Honda CR-V

Honda’s reign of the king of family cars continues with the CR-V. Sure, it’s a smaller SUV (or a larger-sized sedan, depending on how you look at it), but the car does well to be a safe ride for family and friends. It’s got daytime lights, side airbags and a rollover sensor that helps unleash the side airbags in case of a rollover, according the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Honda Odyssey ranked the Odyssey as the best minivan on the market. It’s a top safety pick from the IIHS, and it gets decent mileage for a van at 28 miles to the gallon during highway driving: “Reassurance is what the Odyssey affords best, from its confident car-like handling to its terrific resale value,” wrote.
