These awards were designed to provide consumers with clear guidance on which models offer the best investment due to high quality and value. Learn more about what Kelley Blue Book wrote about each of the winning Honda models below.
In the Best Compact Car category, the Honda Civic was awarded the top honor. KBB editors write, “With fuel-efficient 4-cylinder engines, an affordable sticker price, and a history of trouble-free service, the Honda Civic continues to serve up 5-Year Cost to Own numbers that are impressive. All-in-all, its combination of low running costs, competitive pricing and great retained value makes a solid case for the 2019 Honda Civic as the Kelley Blue Book Best Buy among Compact Cars.”
The Honda Accord won in the Midsize Car Category because “the Accord “isn’t just the finest midsize sedan money can buy, it’s the most sophisticated, most advanced and most impressive automobile not wearing a luxury badge.” We stand by that statement and the Accord’s return to the winner’s circle is clear proof of that judgment.”
The best Compact SUV is the Honda CR-V. KBB writes “Whether you’re looking for a safe, practical, easy-to-drive and easy-to-own car for a younger driver or a leather-laden mainstream SUV that could give some luxury vehicles a run for their money, there’s a CR-V to fit your needs.”
The best Midsize SUV is the Honda Pilot, with KBB editors sharing: “When you buy a Honda Pilot, you get a lot of useful features for the money. As you own the Pilot, you’ll enjoy the comfortable ride – one of many reasons this is a terrific road-trip car — and the family-friendly attention to detail throughout. The Honda Pilot, the Midsize SUV Best Buy of 2019, offers many forms of value from day one, and little to no compromise in the process.”
In the minivan category, the Honda Odyssey impressed editors with all the “minivan essentials: a solid chassis, seats for eight, a pair of sliding side doors, a spacious cargo area and cupholders galore. And of course, the 2019 Honda Odyssey is loaded with safety features.”
The Honda Clarity was named the best buy in the Electric/Hybrid category with KBB sharing, “Starting at just over $34,000, the newest Clarity serves as one car that could please electric-car fans and old-school long-distance road-trippers alike. Best of all, the 2019 Clarity is pure Honda. Imagine your favorite Honda sedan, Accord or Civic for instance, and rest assured the Clarity driving experience is just as rewarding.”
