If you are looking to buy a new car or even a used one, making it a Honda that you spend your money on could be a sound investment. Not least of all because you will be investing in the quality workmanship that Honda have a reputation for, but great resale value, reliability and fuel economy too. The automobile giants from Japan have been leading the motoring industry for almost seven decades now and they have topped almost every category chart and won almost every award, at some point in their history.
If you are still not convinced, we’ll delve deeper into this subject and provide you with bulletproof reasons why you should part cash for a Honda.
Award-Winning Car Manufacturer
As noted above, Honda Motor Company have won numerous awards in their time in the business and have crucially won more Car and Driver Top Manufacturer Awards compared to other motoring brands in the industry. In fact, their total number of wins exceeds 80, which is startling when you compare it to their nearest rival Toyota’s seemingly measly 38 wins. Not just one, but three Honda models, the Accord, Fit and Civic have been included in the 10 Best cars list on numerous occasions. The Accord itself has been on the list over 27 times. Curiously, if you have been considering investing in a used Honda Pilot, you should know that along with the Odyssey, that model has been included in the Best Truck list a total of 13 times.
Honda, compared to other used cars, is one of the best at retaining its value. Although cars lose part of their original value when they leave the forecourt; it is worth noting that Honda has a good history of selling well. Vehicles like the CR-V, Accord, Civic and Fit can still manage to fetch a pretty price, even when they are used.
They Are Incredibly Reliable
A lot of the above has to do with Honda’s reputation for designing and building cars that are dependable and high-quality. Industry experts and customers alike have all played a part in showing their appreciation for Honda’s commitment to cars made with reliability at the forefront.
A concern that has continued to grow and grow over the last couple of decades is the need for cars to become eco-friendlier and fuel efficient. The interesting thing is that Honda has been a leader in both these areas. They have several models that can achieve 30 mpg on open highways and others that can reach 25 mpg on inner city driving and off-highway driving.
When it comes to environmentally-friendly cars, Honda is top of the list somewhere. In the past it has been referred to as the Greenest Vehicle in America.
Its Safety Features
One of the things Honda seems to pride itself on more than anything else is its forward-thinking and cutting-edge safety features. The fact that the company has been awarded numerous accolades related to its safety tells you are onto a winner and a very safe one at that!
