The 2013 Honda Accord and 2013 Honda C-RV earned Best Value Awards from Kiplinger’s Personal Finance. The Accord was named ‘Best New Model’ in the Cars $30,000-$40,000 category and CR-V was rated ‘Best in Class’ in the Small Crossover category. Kiplinger’s selects the winners based on a number of qualifications including price, performance, value, safety, roominess and driving impressions.

“The Accord and CR-V remain segment standouts for their efficiency, packaging, performance and value,” said Michael Accavitti, vice president of marketing operations, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “The strength of the Honda lineup is clearly resonating in the marketplace and we are proud to be recognized for offering true value to customers.”

The magazine applauded the Accord for upscale styling, efficient packaging and ample standard feature content.  For the second consecutive year, the CR-V was named a Best Value, with Kiplinger’s noting the model’s outstanding cargo capacity and technology features.

“With the 2013 redesign, Accord keeps its essential ingredients – a solid driver-to-road connection, comfy interior and high resale values – and spices things up with new technology and a more modern exterior,” said Jessica Anderson, associate editor, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance. “Additionally, in an increasingly crowded segment, CR-V is the ideal others aspire to.”

In addition to being named a ‘Best Value’ by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, the all-new 2013 Honda Accord is among the first vehicles awarded the TOP SAFETY PICK+ designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and was named to Car and Driver Magazine’s ’10Best Cars’ list for a record 27th time. Both the 2013 Accord 4-cylinder and V-6 powertrains were named to the Ward’s 10 Best Engines. Additionally, the Honda-exclusive LaneWatch™ blind spot display, which debuted on the Accord, won Good Housekeeping Magazine’s ‘Very Innovative Product’ award for 2013.

The CR-V finished 2012 as the best-selling SUV in the U.S and was also named a TOP SAFETY PICK by the IIHS.
