Honda’s all-new, redesigned sporty and fun-to-drive 2016 Civic has been named the ‘Overall Best Buy of the Year’ by Kelley Blue Book. According to the expert team of editors and evaluators at KBB.com, ‘the 2016 Honda Civic is the Overall Winner in our Best Buy Awards because it sets a new standard in a segment already known for delivering great value, providing an up-level experience to drivers and passengers in every facet of the driving and ownership experience.’ In addition to the 2016 Civic, Honda’s 2016 CR-V, Pilot and Odyssey took home ‘Best Buy’ honors showcasing their strength in light-truck offerings. Honda also took home five of the 11 non-luxury awards from Kelley Blue Book.
The Honda lineup of 2016 Kelley Blue Book Best Buy award winners and categories are:
Overall Winner: 2016 Honda Civic
Small Car: 2016 Honda Civic
Small SUV/Crossover: 2016 Honda CR-V
Mid-Size SUV/Crossover: 2016 Honda Pilot
Minivan: 2016 Honda Odyssey
It’s no surprise that the 2016 Honda CR-V won the Small SUV/Crossover segment. The Honda CR-V is the best-selling SUV for the past two decades and continues to offer incredible value to customers. Winning the Mid-Size SUV/Crossover segment, the fully redesigned, sophisticated 2016 Pilot has more trim levels, features and options than ever before. While the 2016 Odyssey continues to be the only minivan to offer an in-vehicle vacuum and class-leading fuel economy. Winning the Small Car and Overall Winner, the 2016 Civic raises the bar for compact cars.
“We are incredibly confident in the value, quality and design of the all-new 2016 Civic,” said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division. “This prestigious award from KBB.com helps current and future buyers with their purchase decisions and further solidifies the notion that for customers who purchase a Honda, be it a car or a light truck, they are making an ‘overall’ smart choice.”
“We believe the all-new Honda Civic is a game-changer in the compact vehicle class” said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com. “While the previous-edition Civic was a market leader in a very important segment, the newest version ups the ante in every category – interior and exterior style, safety, feature set – the new Civic takes them all to a new level.”
