Edmunds Names Odyssey and Accord Among their 2019 Best Resale Value Cars

May 2nd, 2019 by

2019 Honda Accord Hybrid Exterior Side Profile Night

With the Honda Odyssey ranked 1st among Minivans by US News and the Honda Accord recently receiving its record 33rd mention among Car and Driver’s 10Best, we weren’t surprised to see both vehicles lauded as best resale value cars in their respective segments as part of Edmunds Best Retained Value® Awards.

Wins included:

  • Best Midsize Sedan: Honda Accord
  • Best Minivan: Honda Odyssey

Edmunds’ Best Retained Value® Awards

It’s easy to get focused on sticker price when you’re comparing new models, but resale value should be considered equally important. Looking to lease in Kentucky? You’ll usually find monthly payments lower with best resale value cars. Looking to buy in Ohio or West Virginia? You’ll get more money back when you come to sell or trade.

With that in mind, Edmunds put together their Best Retained Value Awards to recognize the brands and models with the highest projected private-party residual value five years after launch
