The 2015 Honda Odyssey Won the Best Residual Value in the minivan category for the fourth consecutive year. With this award, automotive experts say the Odyssey should have the highest value after three years of ownership.
The annual Best Residual Value Awards come from ALG,the authority of a vehicle’s quality and value. Residual Value awards honor the vehicles expected to retain the highest percentage of their retail price after three years.Residual, or resale value, is an important but often overlooked category of the automotive industry. It’s important though to remember that your vehicle is an investment that should have value at the end of your time with the car.
ALG chooses its award winners based on historical date, performance and industry trends. Vehicle quality, production levels relative to demand, and price are among the key factors considered by ALG.
In choosing the Odyssey, ALG says the van’s continued strong sales give it the top spot. ALG also says it lack of fleet sales help keep the van’s strong image and consistent used car prices.
ALG says: “Honda’s sixth straight win in the Minivan segment reinforces its image of quality, value and great resale retention.”
The Odyssey defeats the competition including the Toyota Sienna and Kia Sedona.
The van remains America’s favorite family van because it drives like Honda’s smaller cars. But it comfortably fits up to 8 people, and offers every available technology option in the modern vehicle.
Waikem Honda in Massillon has a great selection of Odyssey models available for to test drive today. Bring the entire family in today, and remember that if you want your investment to have value when it’s time to trade it in, there’s no reason to choose any other vehicle.
