Two Honda Vehicles Named Best Resale Value by Kelley Blue Book
We’ve been big fans of the 2015 Honda Fit and 2015 Honda CR-V since they first hit our Mid-Michigan Honda Dealer showrooms, and we are proud to announce that these two popular models have been named “Best Resale Value” vehicles by Kelley Blue Book at KBB.com.
What’s it take for a vehicle to be labeled a “Best Resale Value,” and what does it mean for you? Keep reading to find out!
What Does “Best Resale Value” Mean?
Kelley Blue Book is one of the longest-lived organizations in auto value, and if you are looking for an expert in the field, they are typically the first one that a driver goes to. KBB.com has been ranking vehicles based on their features and history to determine their resale value after a period of ownership—in this case five years—to help drivers determine what vehicles are smart investments.
- The 2015 Honda Fit took the top spot in its segment of the auto market for projected resale value after it has been owned for five years.
- The 2015 CR-V found itself among the Top 10 Best Resale Value vehicle in America.
Both of those distinctions can be tough to nail down, as there’s not any one thing about the Fit and CR-V that make them retain value as well as they do. But by giving drivers great standard features without needing to upgrade and offering powerful yet fuel-efficient engines, Honda has crafted two vehicles that keep their value remarkably well.
David Hendley, Assistant VP of Sales at American Honda responded to the awards, saying “It’s great to see the all-new Fit, our brand’s entry model, join the much-honored CR-V among KBB.com’s Best Resale Value Award winners this year.”
