2017 Honda Ridgeline – 2017 KBB Best Resale Value -Top 10 Winner
We are pleased to announce that four new Honda models have earned top recognition in the 2017 Kelly Blue Book “Best Resale Value” awards. The 2017 Honda Ridgeline, Fit, HR-V and Accord Hybrid have all been selected by the automotive authority as vehicles that best retain their value over time.
The Kelly Blue Book Resale Value Awards are based on extensive research and analysis by KBB automotive experts. This annual study reveals resale value projections by examining current vehicle data, sales data, competition within vehicle segments, market conditions for each vehicle and future economy predictions. The awards recognize outstanding vehicles that best retain their value over the first five years of new-vehicle ownership based on the Kelley Blue Book® Official Residual Value Guide.
KBB Resale Value Awards are broken into several groups including overall top ten winners and specific category winners. Top 10 winners are recognized as those projected to retain the highest percentage of their original suggested retail price. These vehicles receive the distinction of holding their value better than 95% of the new vehicles available for that model year. The 2017 Honda Ridgeline has been included in this year’s Top Ten grouping. Kelly Blue Book officials cite ..”clever features and appealing qualities…” have made this new truck popular with owners.
Specific category winners are identified by KBB resale value research to provide consumers with a comprehensive list of vehicles that retain their value over time. This year, the 2017 Honda Fit was awarded the 2017 Best Resale Value Award for the “Subcompact” category. The Fit was selected for a variety of factors including its cabin size, cargo flexibility and reputation for reliability.
Selected as the 2017 “Best Hybrid/Alternative Energy Car”, the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid was considered by KBB officials to offer the same driving experience as non-hybrid Accord models with the added benefit of exceptional fuel economy. The Accord Hybrid was also recognized for additional safety features and an upgraded infotainment system.
The 2017 Honda HR-V was awarded the 2017 Best Resale Value Award for the “Subcompact SUV/Crossover” category. The KBB team praised this new Honda model for its passenger and cargo versatility, specifically calling out the HR-V’s back “Magic Seat” that can be folded down to create a flat floor or fold up against the back seat to accommodate tall items in the cargo area.
All of these new Honda models are exceptional vehicles that will offer years of driving satisfaction. We thank the Kelly Blue Book automotive experts for recognizing the outstanding quality of the Honda brand and identifying these models as best choices for resale value.
