As many of you know, Honda is no stranger to awards. With several 2019 models winning trophies this year, it might be difficult to pick your favorite. Let us help! Here are the top 2019 Honda vehicles that should be on your “must test drive” list.
2019 Honda Pilot
Kelley Blue Book: “Honda Pilot reinforces its position as the most recommendable SUV in its class.”
A thought-out cabin, with ample room in all rows, is but one simple reason families continue to purchase the Honda Pilot. A slew of advanced tech up front, a relatively low price point, and hidden rear cargo solutions make the Pilot something to behold. As KBB.com’s Midsize SUV Best Buy of 2019, the new Pilot is quite the specimen. Take the Pilot for a test drive at your nearest Honda dealership, and you’ll see why it’s one of America’s best SUVs.
2019 Honda Accord is America’s Best Sedan
A perennial award-winner, the Honda Accord has set the bar high for decades, and 2019 has become yet another banner year for everyone’s favorite car. Landing on a handful of “best of 2019” lists, the new Accord is affordable yet lavish, eco-friendly yet sprightly, spacious yet compact, and every other unlikely adjective-constructed duo you can imagine.
Car and Driver: “The [Accord] continues to balance engagement, quality, and practicality more consistently than any other car.”
With a whopping 33 appearances on the Car and Driver 10Best list, the Accord is a record-breaking sedan that makes pulses pitter-patter. Among the multiple reasons why the new is one of Car and Driver’s best cars of 2019: its “…finely tuned primary controls, a light helm with good feedback, and an optional and precise six-speed manual shifter.” That’s all topped with cherries like a punchy turbocharged 2.0L, a 5.5-second 0-60 time, an Accord Hybrid model that returns 48 mpg, and an outstandingly detailed dash and cabin.
Kelley Blue Book: “…The Accord isn’t just the finest midsize sedan money can buy, it’s the most sophisticated, most advanced and most impressive automobile not wearing a luxury badge.”
KBB.com has also named the new Honda Accord their Midsize Car Best Buy of 2019. With a high resale value, standard Honda Sensing – which also helped it earn an IIHS Top Safety Pick award – a spacious interior, and seriously classy styling, the Accord takes back-to-back KBB awards in the Midsize Sedan category.
Edmunds: “…Accord’s new and improved interior and turbocharged yet fuel-efficient engines remind us why it remains one of the most popular cars in America.”
The Accord is once again Edmunds Buyers Most Wanted Award for Best Midsize Car, this time beating the Toyota Camry for top honors. The 2019 Accord is just further proof that SUVs still have competition. If you need a new car in South Florida, the 2019 Honda Accord is your best bet.
2019 Honda Civic
An IHS Markit award-winner, the new 2019 Civic is a fun-to-drive and comfy sedan with a high resale value and wide range of trim levels and options. Ladies and gentlemen, America’s top compact car, the ’19 Civic:
Kelley Blue Book: “The Best in Class Just Got Better.”
Named as KBB.com’s Compact Car Best Buy of the year for the fifth time, the newly refreshed 2019 Civic has an impressively low MSRP, a rowdy 174-horsepower turbocharged 1.5-liter engine, standard Honda Sensing, and a new (simpler) Display Audio system with 3D navigation and standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Simply put, the 2019 Honda Civic just has an “I’m better than you” aura about it—and that’s hard to dispute.
Edmunds: “An excellent vehicle all around, the Civic is available in such a wide variety of styles and powertrains that competitors in this segment just can’t beat this perennial shopper favorite.”
Like its Accord and CR-V siblings, the new 2019 Civic is also a favorite amongst buyers, according to Edmunds.com. With a new 2.0-liter Sport trim, a coupe, a sedan, and a hatchback, the Civic offers more variety than just about any rival in its segment. That’s what makes it the Buyers Most Wanted Compact Car of 2019.
Car and Driver: “The Type R’s completeness earns it a trophy.”
The Civic Sport Hatchback/Type R is an overachiever—and that’s a good thing. Its 306-hp turbo 2.0L is the most powerful engine not just in the segment, but also within the American Honda lineup. Driving the Type R hatch is seriously a one-of-a-kind experience. Come test drive the Civic at a South Florida Honda dealership.
2019 Honda CR-V
Edmunds: “Bolstered by Honda’s well-earned reputation for reliability, the CR-V remains one of the top-selling small SUVs on the market.”
In such a competitive segment, SUVs like the CR-V are kings for a reason. With a high resale value, great marks for reliability, an IIHS TSP win, and classic styling, the new CR-V is the quintessential crossover for small families and those on-the-go. That’s just a few reasons for the CR-V’s Buyers Most Wanted Compact SUV win.
Kelley Blue Book: “What’s the most recommendable small SUV for the most people? Once again, the answer is the Honda CR-V.”
Practical, efficient, and easy to drive, the 2019 CR-V has won the KBB Best Buy Award in its category four out of a possible five times. Considering how the SUV market has grown, that is some otherworldly achievement.
2019 Honda Clarity
Loaded with premier features and three total models, the new Honda Clarity is a masterpiece amongst hybrids and EVs.
Kelley Blue Book: “A plug-in hybrid that drives like Honda’s best.”
The genetic code of the new Clarity series is pure Honda. There’s a sprinkling of Civic in there, mixed with an Accord-like cabin, and the fuel-efficiency of the Insight. No wonder it won the KBB Electric/Hybrid Car Best Buy of 2019 award.
2019 Honda Insight
Recognized as the Green Car of the Year, the 2019 Insight features an all-new design and all but puts hybrid cars in the mainstream. Returning up to 55 mpg and garnering a perfect IIHS TSP+ grade, the Insight proudly sports one of the lowest MSRPs in the class, as well. As we inch closer to fully electric roadways, the new Honda Insight is ensuring that everyone can afford to drive green.
2019 Honda Odyssey
Families have grown to appreciate minivans like the Odyssey, and 2019’s model is upping the family-friendliness ante.
Kelley Blue Book: “…for the 2019 model year we still maintain our assertion that the Odyssey is the best family car in the world.”
After a total redesign in 2018, the new Honda Odyssey continues its two-year trend as KBB.com’s Best Minivan in America. Its claims to fame? Top-notch quality and first-rate utility, thanks to its built-in vacuum and rear entertainment system, as well as some of the most flexible seating options in the segment. Resale values for the Odyssey remain at the top, also, with an IIHS TSP award and a full array of Honda Sensing safety features as contributors.
Edmunds: “…the new Odyssey is a cut above the competition with a host of new upgrades and features families will love.”
As the Edmunds Buyers Most Wanted Minivan, the 2019 Odyssey proves that SUVs can’t compete with the versatility, space, and practicality offered in a van. Test drive a new Odyssey minivan at a Honda dealership near you!
