Honda Takes Home Awards

One of the best ways to know whether or not an automaker like Honda has a competitive edge over the market is to see what awards the brand and their vehicles earn each year. Groups like Kelley Blue Book and Edmunds.com have been particularly fond of Honda vehicles lately, naming many of them the best in their class:

  • Kelley Blue Book’s Best Buy Award Winners on KBB.com went to the 2015 Accord, Civic, CR-V, and Odyssey, recognizing the vehicles as the best value in their respective classes among over 300 new cars for the 2015 model year.
  • Six Honda models made the 2014 Most Popular on Edmunds.com Cars list—the 2014 Accord, Civic, CR-V, Pilot, Odyssey, and Fit—for their popularity among drivers and critics on Edmunds.com.
  • The 2014 Honda CR-V was named the “Best Compact SUV for the Money” by U.S. News & World Report, where the editors praised the CR-V for its “roomy and practical interior,” which they said most compact SUV shoppers search for.

If you noticed that the CR-V received quite a bit of attention, you aren’t alone. The 2015 CR-V received a new engine that improved both its power and fuel efficiency as well as a new trim level that is loaded with the state-of-the-art Honda Sensing safety tech.

Part of the reason Honda is able to have such an edge over competing automakers like Nissan is their commitment to making a dependable, affordable lineup instead of spreading themselves thin by trying to have a vehicle for every niche.
