Four Honda models, the 2015 CR-V and Odyssey, along with the Honda of Ohio Mfg. built Accord and CR-V, have received the prestigious Best Buy Award in their respective categories from the experts at Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com. Honda’s four awards are among the most earned by any automaker and represent a third of the twelve total KBB.com Best Buy Award categories. The 2015 Honda Civic was awarded Kelley Blue Book Best Buy: Small Car, the 2015 Honda Accord for mid-size car, the 2015 Honda CR-V for small SUV/crossover, and the 2015 Honda Odyssey received the Kelley Blue Book Best Buy: Minivan award. Each of the Hondas were selected as winners in their category following expert evaluation and testing by KBB.com experts, along with analysis of a broad range of vehicle-related data, including cost of ownership information, consumer reviews and ratings, and vehicle sales/retail sales information.
“It is an honor to receive Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Awards for four of our core models, all of which are on track to be best-sellers with individual retail car buyers again in 2014,” said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division. “This prestigious award from KBB.com helps current and future buyers with their purchase decision and further solidifies the notion that customers who purchase a Honda are making an all-around smart choice.”
“Our Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Award program proved to us what most Americans already suspect—that Honda vehicles are among the most value-filled in the market,” said Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com Executive Editorial Director Jack Nerad. “In test after test we were struck by how uncannily spot-on the Honda cars, crossovers and minivans were in matching up to the needs and desires of consumers in their individual segments. By achieving award-winning status in four out of the 12 categories Hondas proved their reputation for high value is well-deserved.”
The Honda Civic, Accord, CR-V and Odyssey, all built in North America, continue to lead retail sales in their respective segments through the end of September 2014, based on the latest new-vehicle registration data from IHS Automotive.
