2018 Accord Named Overall Best Buy of 2018 as Honda Models Win 7 of 12 Kelley Blue Book Awards
The all-new 2018 Honda Accord was named the Overall Best Buy of 2018 by Kelley Blue Book (KBB) as Honda vehicles took top honors in 7 of twelve ‘Best Buy’ award categories. The all-new Accord bested every other new vehicle in the market because, according to the expert team of editors and evaluators at KBB, “it outclasses the competition in almost every meaningful measure. It also sells for far less than the average new car while providing more features, better fuel economy and a more proven reputation for quality and reliability.
Honda led the industry with seven 2018 Best Buy winners including:
· Overall Best Buy: 2018 Honda Accord
· Small Car: 2018 Honda Civic
· Mid-Size Car: 2018 Honda Accord
· Electric/Hybrid Car: 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid
· Small SUV/Crossover: 2018 Honda CR-V
· Midsize SUV/Crossover: 2018 Honda Pilot
· Minivan: 2018 Honda Odyssey
