Honda’s three top-selling models have received 2018 Edmunds Best Retained Value Awards. The 2018 Accord, Civic and CR-V topped their respective product categories in projected residual value after five years of ownership. A higher residual value can reduce the long-term cost of ownership and put money back in the owner’s pocket when it comes time to sell or trade-in a vehicle.
“Buying a new car is a huge financial decision, and our 2018 Edmunds Best Retained Value Awards are designed to help shoppers discover the brands and vehicles that can help them get the most out of their investment,” said Avi Steinlauf, Edmunds’ CEO. “This year’s winners underscore a commitment to quality and reliability, and are good bets to hold their value over the course of ownership.”
The 2018 Edmunds Best Retained Value Awards are designed to highlight overall ownership value to shoppers, beyond just the initial purchase price, by indicating the highest projected residual value after five years.
