If you think that Honda has picked up a lot of Kelley Blue Book awards this year, then you’re right! It’s not just your imagination—KBB has recognized Honda as the Most Awarded Brand of 2017, with more than two dozen brand and individual model awards this year.
Honda picked up 28 awards for its various 2017 models, placing it number one on a list that also included Chevrolet in second place, Toyota in third, Subaru in fourth, and Kia rounding out the top five.

In addition to the brand award, Honda had three models on the list of 10 Most Awarded Cars of 2017, with the Accord ranking first.
“The 2017 Honda Accord won more Kelley Blue Book awards and accolades than any other vehicle this year,” wrote KBB.com editors. “It’s our Midsize Car Best Buy, one of our 10 Best Sedans Under $25,000, a 5-Year Cost to Own standout, one of the 10 Most Comfortable Cars Under $30,000, and one of our Best Family Sedans. The Accord Hybrid also received kudos as one of the 10 Best Hybrid Cars Under $40,000, and was recognized for its impressive resale value.”
