10 Most Popular Cars For Moms Announced by Truecar.com

Just in time for Mother’s Day, TrueCar.com, the authoritative voice in new car pricing and industry trend information, has identified the 10 Most Popular Cars for Moms. Based on 2011 data received from women with children about the cars they drive, the findings place the Honda CR-V at the top of the list, followed by the Nissan Altima, Honda Odyssey, Subaru Outback, and Honda Pilot.

“The data shows moms prefer vehicles that combine practicality with style,” said Kristen Andersson, Senior Analyst at TrueCar.com. “Bigger is not always better when it comes to moms’ favorite vehicles as evidenced by the lack of any Large SUVs and only one minivan in the overall top ten.”

Some of the key findings of the data include:

  • Honda has five vehicles in the top 10 most popular cars for moms, including the CR-V, Odyssey, Pilot, Accord, and Civic.
  • Nissan has three vehicles in the top 10 most popular cars for moms, including the Altima, Rogue, and Sentra.
  • Odyssey ranked the highest among moms with two or more kids, thanks to its ability to hold up to eight people as well as 38.4 cubic-feet of cargo.  The Honda Pilot, which ranked fifth overall, came in second place among moms with two or more kids, also attributable to its ability to carry up to eight passengers and 18 cubic feet of cargo.
  • With manufacturer’s suggested retail pricing of $37,855 and $40,200, the Honda Odyssey and Pilot are the two most expensive vehicles on the list.
  • The two least expensive vehicles on the list were the Honda Civic and Nissan Sentra small sedans, with MSRPs of $21,445 and $19,140, making them favorites among small families with small budgets.
  • Only one minivan made the overall top 10, showing that most moms still prefer to drive a sedan or SUV. However, three minivans — the Honda Odyssey, Toyota Sienna, and Chrysler Town & Country — ranked among the top five most popular vehicles for moms with three or more children.
