CR-V and Odyssey Two of the Best Bets for Used Cars

Used Honda in San Antonio

Edmunds voted the Honda CR-V as the best bet for a used compact SUV/crossover.

Here at Benson Honda, we know that used cars are just as big of a concern as new ones, and with the amount of choices that exist out there, finding a reliable used car can be difficult. That’s why we’re going to make it easier for you to find the best deal on a used Honda in San Antonio. Though all of our new models are Honda vehicles, our used car inventory features many different makes and models. The two we’re going to focus on today, however, are Honda vehicles. That’s because the models won Edmund’s 2012 Best Used Car Bet Award in their segment. The awards were based on models over a span of six years. Every model year from 2005 to 2010 was accounted for. Let’s take a look at the winners.

First off is the Honda CR-V, which took the award for the best compact SUV/crossover. It won despite the fact that the CR-V never offered a V6 engine, and only brought 14 additional horsepower in the 2010 model. It makes sense, as most of our customers interested in buying a crossover aren’t too concerned about power. They are more interested in fuel efficiency and storage, which are two categories the CR-V succeeds admirably in. Edmunds said that one of the deciding factors in the decision was the fact that used CR-V models offer as much space as some full-sized SUVs. Check out our selection of used Honda CR-V models.

Superior fuel efficiency and storage helped lead the Honda Odyssey to be voted best bet for a used minivan.

The second winner is another obvious one. Used Honda Odyssey models took the Best Bet Award for used minivan. Edmunds said that the manufacturer stuck a V6 engine in the Odyssey back in 1999, it was hard for others to compete. That’s because the Odyssey has always featured superior, class-exclusive features. It also has rated high in safety scores—a category understandably important to families— ever since its release. In fact the 2014 Honda Odyssey just recently received a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS. It’s the first minivan to ever do so.
