Four Honda Models Awarded ‘Best Resale Value’ by KBB

The 2014 Honda CR-V made Kelley Blue Book’s top 10 list of best resale value cars.

2013 Best Resale Value Cars

As you likely know, it’s hard to get a return investment on a car because as soon as it rolls off the lot it loses value. As the odometer continues to go up, the price of the car goes down. Even if you only own a car for a year, it’s highly unlikely that you will be able to find a buyer if the price tag is the same as what you originally paid for it. Depreciation is something that plagues car buyers who don’t plan to drive their new vehicle until it bites the dust. However, there are some cars that depreciate more reasonably that others, and it’s not surprising that many of them are Hondas.

Kelley Blue Book, the leader in vehicle valuation, recently did a study of 2013 best resale value cars, and as we expected, four Honda vehicles received awards. The Kelley Blue Book’s Best Resale Value Awards are based on projections from the KBB value guide. All of the vehicles that win awards are expected to maintain the greatest proportion of their original MSRP after five years of ownership.

Depreciation is one of the biggest expenses during ownership, so if you have been looking to buy a new car, we highly recommend that you look into one of these value-holders. As we said earlier, if you plan to drive your car until the day it can no longer run, depreciation is not an issue. However, we still highly recommend one of these great vehicles.

The 2014 Honda Accord was awarded with the best resale value of all mid-size cars.

The gas-powered 2014 Honda Accord is capable of traveling 36 mpg on the highway, and its plug-in counterpart has insane ratings of 124 MPGe in the city and 105 on the highway [1]. It’s the highest fuel economy rating of any vehicle currently on the market. With a rating that is far and beyond that of competitors, the Accord Plug-In Hybrid will remain a relevant vehicle for years to come, which is why it received the best resale value for a plug-in vehicle.

If you are interested in making a smart investment, we suggest you take a look at one of these four great vehicles. While we don’t have all four available in our new car inventory just yet, we have the resources to get any of them for you.
