2018 Honda CR-V Driveway

No matter what you’re looking for in your next new vehicle, there’s sure to be a Honda model that has what you’re after. The experts at Kelley Blue Book recently released their list of 2018 Best Buy Awards, and as one might expect, the vehicles produced by Honda were well represented! Honda earned the Best Buy Award in seven of the 12 KBB Best Buy contests,* and that’s given Tri-State area drivers plenty to get excited about.

Winning Honda Vehicles

Kelley Blue Book’s editors selected this year’s winners by evaluating each competitor’s performance, dependability, standard features, five-year cost-to-own estimates, resale value, and general utility! The 2018 Honda Civic, the 2018 Honda Accord, the 2018 Honda CR-V, the 2018 Honda Pilot, the 2018 Honda Odyssey, and the 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid all came away with victories in their respective segments. With this lineup of winning vehicles, it’s clear that Honda’s engineers are in a league of their own.

  • 2018 Honda Civic: 2018 is the fourth consecutive model year in which the Honda Civic has won the Best Buy Award in the category for small cars. According to KBB, “no compact car was roomier, tech-savvier and more feature-filled than the newest Civic.”
  • 2018 Honda Accord: In addition to winning this year’s competition for Best Midsize Car, the new Accord won KBB’s Overall Best Buy award*—and it’s not hard to see why. The 2018 Accord has been designed with powerful and efficient turbocharged engine options, and Honda Sensing is now standard on every trim.
  • 2018 Honda CR-V: This “flexible and fuel-efficient errand-runner” is affordable on nearly any budget, but it took home the Best Buy Award because it has more features and superior luxury stylings relative to competitors in its price range.
  • 2018 Honda Pilot: As noted in Kelley Blue Book’s Pilot review, the Pilot has been a leader in the SUV segment for years. Although it faced stiff competition this year, there’s still no comparable three-row SUV that can match its dependability, style, and long-term value.
  • 2018 Honda Odyssey: The new Odyssey offers more safety, entertainment, connectivity, and convenience features than you’ll know what to do with, but it’s this minivan’s driveability that really sets it apart from its challengers. KBB has gone so far as to declare it “the best family car in the world.”
  • 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid: The Clarity Plug-In Hybrid has it all! If you’ve been waiting for a hybrid model that doesn’t compromise on performance, then your wait is almost over. This long-range, dependable electric vehicle will arrive at Tri-State Honda Dealers soon!
