6 Honda Models Earn 2019 Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Awards

Honda dominates the 2019 Kelley Blue Book (KBB) Best Buy Awards! The 2019 Honda Civic, Accord, CR-V, Pilot, Odyssey and Clarity all won in their respective categories. This represents a solid winning streak in the Compact Car Category for the Civic (a 5-time winner), and a 4 out of 5 for the Accord, CR-V, Pilot and Odyssey. The Honda Clarity won for the 2nd consecutive year in the Best Buy Electric/Hybrid category.

These feats are quite impressive, especially considering the KBB Best Buy category was just added in 2015.  Plus, Kelley Blue Book’s Best Buy Awards represent 365 days of rigorous evaluation of almost every new vehicle available in the United States.
