Honda Earns Five 2018 Consumer Guide Automotive Best Buy Awards
Another month, another slew of Honda awards. The automaker just can’t seem to stop. After Honda swept the Kelley Blue Book “Best Buy” awards, five of its models have won in their category in the 2018 Consumer Guide Automotive Best Buy Awards.
Each year, Consumer Guide Automotive editors evaluate hundreds of vehicles to find the very best across 20 automotive segments. The two major factors taking into consideration are price and value, leading to vehicles with lots of standard features and low cost of ownership to perform well—so it’s no surprise Honda was well represented.
This is what Consumer Guide Automotive had to say about each model.
Compact Car: Honda Civic
“The Honda Civic lineup offers a broad range of trim levels and body styles to suit a variety of tastes and budgets, and all of them are practical, economical, refined, and fun to drive.”
Midsize Car: Honda Accord
“The redesigned Honda Accord offers a fine mix of cutting-edge technology features, ample acceleration from its turbo 2.0-liter engine, outstanding rear legroom, and class-leading all-around refinement.”
Subcompact Crossover: Honda HR-V
“The HR-V packs excellent cargo room and decent passenger space into a pint-sized package, and it strikes a nice balance between lively handling and a comfortable ride.”
Midsize Crossover: Honda Pilot
“Pilot boasts an impressive selection of available comfort and safety features, a nicely finished cabin with outstanding passenger/cargo capacity, and excellent driving manners and fuel efficiency for a vehicle its size.”
Compact Pickup: Honda Ridgeline
