Honda Fit and CR-V Recognized by KBB for Best Resale Value
While it doesn’t quite compare to Chevy’s haul, Honda is sill proud to have picked up two Kelley Blue Book Best Resale Value Awards of its own. The 2015 Honda Fit was number one in the subcompact car segment for projected resale value after five years of ownership, while the 2015 CR-V made the website’s overall Top 10 Best Resale Value vehicles in America list.
The Honda CR-V finished in tenth on the 10 Best Resale Value vehicles list, with KBB estimating the vehicle would retain 65.3% of its MSRP value after 36 months of ownership, and 50.8% of its original value after 60 months.

The 2015 Honda Fit, named “Best Supcompact Car,” was anticipated to retain 65% of its original value after 46 months and 47.7% after 60.
“The Fit is a premium small car with a healthy appetite for passengers and cargo, representing tremendous value well beyond its exterior footprint,” said David Hendley, American Honda’s assistant vice president of sales. “It’s great to see the all-new Fit, our brand’s entry model, join the much-honored CR-V among KBB.com’s Best Resale Value Award winners this year.”
“More than a resale value standout, the 2015 Honda Fit qualifies as a smart buy from all angles,” said the editors at KBB. “Starting around $16,500 with destination charges and topping out under $22,000 with navigation, leather and more, the Fit remains a strong favorite among the KBB.com editors, and a regular entry on several of our annual 10 Best lists.”
