Edmunds looks at True Market Value, highest projected residual value after five years. Honda wins among non-luxury brands with a project residual value of 50.1%.
The Honda Accord is one of the best vehicles for small drivers.
That’s according to Edmunds, who studied the vehicles and determined which ones are best for small driver safety. They say to look for vehicles with great visibility. Look for vehicles that a low border between the metal body and window, and a big area above the frame and below the roof.
The biggest issue is safety.
Edmunds,com says the 2014 Honda CR-V is the best new 5-passenger SUV you can buy.
Anyone who is already a CR-V has fallen in love, and when you see it for yourself, you’ll see what Edmunds is saying. Edmunds puts it on the list because you’ll get up to 30 MPG. For a 5-passenger vehicle, there is a lot of available space. With the seats up, you can fit 37.2 cubic feet of cargo inside. Fold down the rear seats, and you can fit up to 70.9 of cubic feet cargo.
“…when it comes to cold, hard facts, figures and just plain reasonable decision-making, there’s no doubt which five-passenger SUV we’d recommend first to friends and family: the Honda CR-V,” Edmunds says.
The auto and parenting sites considered safety, fuel economy, technology and connectivity to complete its rankings.
With that said, it’s easy to see why all these models are on the list.
The 2013 Honda Pilot is one of the best choices for a larger families. It’s one of the few vehicles that offers comfortable seating for up to 8 people, and with a backup camera now standard across the lineup, the Pilot is one of the most practical choices for those seeking a large SUV.
We’ve always found the Pilot to be one of the most underrated vehicles in Honda’s lineup. There isn’t a wasted millimeter of space in the Pilot. There’s room for 8 people to sit inside, and even taller passengers will fit comfortably in the back of a Pilot. Sometimes we look at 3-row models and think “who would fit in that third row,” but we don’t think that’s the case in the 2013 Honda Pilot.
While the Pilot is relatively the same as previous models, a backup camera is now standard on all 2013 Honda Pilot models. This is a big step forward, because we know it can be hard to fit a larger SUV into a tight space. Those problems are now a thing of the past.
