The annual KBB Best Buy Awards are designed to showcase the finest examples of automotive quality across all industry categories. The competition is fierce and top positions are sought-after, but we still weren’t surprised to see Honda win in six separate classes:

  • Compact Car – 2019 Honda Civic
  • Midsize Car – 2019 Honda Accord
  • Compact SUV – 2019 Honda CR-V
  • Midsize SUV – 2019 Honda Pilot
  • Minivan – 2019 Honda Odyssey
  • Electric/Hybrid Car – 2018 Honda Clarity PHEV

Where Do You Turn When You Need the Best Vehicle to Buy?

  • Compact Car – 2019 Honda Civic: The Best Compact Car winner five years in a row, the Honda Civic was lauded for delivering “roominess, high-quality materials, and features expected from a class-above vehicle.”
  • Midsize Car – 2019 Honda Accord: KBB calls this “the complete package”, drawing attention to “the largest cabin, great powertrains and an enviable record of high resale value.” The latest model even provides refreshed style and revised powertrains to soar above rival models.
  • Compact SUV – 2019 Honda CR-V: Citing “useful tech features and a sterling reputation for reliability and resale value”, KBB were happy to make the Honda CR-V their top compact SUV for the fourth time in the last five years.
  • Midsize SUV – 2019 Honda Pilot: Stepping from CR-V to Pilot provides the same exceptional quality and reliability, plus a more refined interior, added power, and the option to choose between seating for 7 or 8.
  • Minivan – 2019 Honda Odyssey: The Honda Odyssey stands out thanks to “thoughtful features and a practical, upscale interior”. Surprisingly elegant and powerful for a minivan, it still never loses the space and flexibility you’d expect from a larger family vehicle.
  • Electric/Hybrid Car – 2019 Honda Clarity PHEV: The Honda Clarity Plug-in Hybrid provides space for five alongside the ability to make 47 miles of all-electric range and up to 42 mpg*.
