Edmunds.com Names the 2014 Honda Civic and Odyssey Best Value Cars

June 27th, 2014 by

In their annual Best Retained Value awards, not only has Edmunds.com named Honda their Best Retained Value in the Non-Luxury Brand category, but two Honda cars have topped their respective categories for “Best Value” as well: the 2014 Honda Civic and the 2014 Honda Odyssey.2014 Honda Civic

What is it that makes these vehicles such a great value? Let’s take a look at what defines them to get a better idea!

The Civic is a Top Small Car

The small car market has always been tough, and the Honda Civic has always been able to beat out the competition. The 2014 Civic carries on in that long tradition, providing drivers with an affordable, fuel-efficient, and practical sedan that includes standard features other automakers think you should pay extra for, including:

  • Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio
  • Honda’s i-MID touchscreen infotainment system
  • Steering wheel-mounted controls for tech and cruise
  • SMS texting and Pandora internet radio
  • Rearview camera system

All of this and more makes the Civic a great investment. After all, you are getting some truly modern features without having to pay to upgrade them. That sounds like a great value to us.

Honda’s Odyssey is an Impressive Minivan

And when you want a great family vehicle, the 2014 Odyssey can seat up to eight and has plenty of cargo storage space when you need to make room for luggage or the entire family. One of the best parts about the Odyssey is that, just like the Civic, Honda includes some of the best in standard features, so if you’re wanting to upgrade, you can transform this minivan into one of the most luxurious and practical vehicles on the road today.

You can even get it with a built-in vacuum—the HondaVac—if you spring for the Touring Elite trim level!
