When you purchase a new vehicle, it’s always important to know how much it will depreciate over the course of time. Many brand-new vehicles will lose 30% of their value within the first year of ownership. Kelley Blue Book looks to make sure you know how well your next vehicle will retain its value with its Best Resale Value Awards — and it looks like Honda has walked away with five of these awards.

The Japanese carmaker has walked away with a win in every model type it produces, from its passenger car to its pickup truck. Kelley Blue Book recognized the all-new 2019 Insight, along with the Civic, HR-V, and Odyssey, in their respective categories. The 2019 Ridgeline went one step further and was actually included in the top 10 for Best Overall Resale Value.

The winners of the 2019 Kelley Blue Book Best Resale Value Awards include the following Honda models:

These awards look to recognize those vehicles that will retain their value over the first five years of new-vehicle ownership. If resale value is something that matters to you, make sure to stop by Hardin County Honda for your next car!

Honda Accord Hybrid Wins 2019 Wards 10 Best Engines Award

For many hybrid vehicles, you will find that power is sacrificed for fuel efficiency. This isn’t the case for the 2019 Honda Accord Hybrid. This hybrid sedan was recently honored with the 2019 Wards 10 Best Engines award, a prestigious accolade from WardsAuto.

The Accord Hybrid uses the third generation of Honda’s two-motor hybrid powertrain. It is powered by a 2.0-liter DOHC iVTEC® Atkinson-cycle inline-four engine that is paired to an electric propulsion motor that puts out a class-leading total system output of 212 horsepower and 232 lb-ft of torque. This power, combined with the sedan’s EPA-estimated fuel-efficiency rating of 48 mpg in the city and 48 mpg on the highway, makes it a good option for an everyday vehicle.*

Along with its power, this two-motor hybrid powertrain was praised for its fuel efficiency and responsiveness. WardsAuto also noted the Accord Hybrid’s affordability and the seamless, quiet delivery of power by this engine.

“The operation is all very seamless, nimble, quiet, amazingly responsive, and affordable — making believers out of even our staunchest hybrid skeptics,” said David E. Zoia in WardsAuto’s write up on this winner.

Currently, the Accord Hybrid has a starting MSRP of $25,320. It comes standard with the Honda Sensing® suite of driver-assistance technologies, dual-zone automatic climate control, an Eco Assist™ system, and other innovations. It also has the option of either an eight- or ten-year Hybrid Battery Warranty.***

At some point, the Honda Accord will have to stop winning awards, but based on how the last year-and-a-half have gone, it won’t be any time soon. Visit Hardin County Honda to learn more about the industry’s top hybrid sedan.
