Five Honda Models Earn 2019 KBB Best Resale Value Awards
Every year, KBB recognizes the vehicles that best retain their value over the first five years of ownership, a strong indicator of their overall ability to maintain value.
The 2019 Honda HR-V was named the best subcompact SUV/crossover with 58.2% value retained after 36 months and 41% value retained after 60 months. “[It] may be the brand’s smallest SUV, but it’s a giant among rivals,” KBB said.
