Honda Wins Big with KBB Best Buy Awards

Each year Kelly Blue Book test drives hundreds of new vehicles in order to build Buyer’s Guides, Comparison Tests and more. At the beginning of each year KBB evaluates the best of all the brand-new models and subjects them to an intense evaluation. Honda has stolen the show this year at the KBB awards. The winners list was filled with Hondas! Of the 12 categories listed in the recent Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Awards of 2018, Honda won 6 of them.

The drive test are important but resale is also considered. The KBB resale value and 5-Year Cost to Own calculations are critical in their analysis. Depreciation is almost always the biggest expense in new-car ownership, and without taking it into account it’s almost impossible to know which of two similarly priced cars will cost you more in the long run.

With unprecedented levels of quality across the industry it is hard to choose a bad vehicle nowadays; however, there’s always a vehicle that offers a stronger mix of attributes than its competitors.

Below is a list of the Honda vehicles that won Best Buy Awards and a brief on what was said about them.
