TORRANCE, Calif. – Honda has received two Best Resale Value Awards from trusted vehicle valuation source Kelley Blue Book www.kbb.com. The 2015 Honda Fit (automobiles.honda.com/fit/) earned the top award in its segment for projected resale value after five years of ownership. Additionally, the 2015 Honda CR-V (automobiles.honda.com/cr-v/) was honored as one of the overall Top 10 Best Resale Value vehicles in America.
2015 Honda Vehicles Honored with Kelley Blue Book Best Resale Value Awards
2015 Honda Fit – Best Resale Value: Subcompact Car
2015 Honda CR-V – Best Resale Value: Top 10
“The Fit is a premium small car with a healthy appetite for passengers and cargo, representing tremendous value well beyond its exterior footprint,” said David Hendley, assistant vice president of sales at American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “It’s great to see the all-new Fit, our brand’s entry model, join the much-honored CR-V among KBB.com’s Best Resale Value Award winners this year.”
Kelley Blue Book’s Best Resale Value Awards are based on projections from the Kelley Blue Book® Official Residual Value Guide. These prestigious awards honor vehicles expected to maintain the greatest proportion of their original Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) after five years of ownership. Since depreciation (or loss of value) is typically a car buyer’s primary expense during ownership, these awards are designed to help consumers make more informed car-buying decisions.

Earlier, the 2015 Honda Fit has claimed a spot on the prestigious 2015 AUTOMOBILE All-Star list (automobilemag.com/2015AllStars). The brand’s editors, who judge each vehicle on its performance, features, and overall value, applauded the Fit (automobiles.honda.com/fits) for its refined powertrain, excellent ergonomics, and fun-to-drive dynamics.
“The Fit remains the benchmark for packaging, versatility and value in its segment,” said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda automobile division for American Honda. “AUTOMOBILE’s recognition of the Honda Fit validates our ongoing efforts to deliver best-in-class vehicles for our customers, and our continued investment in North American manufacturing.”
“We’d argue there isn’t a better car on the road today starting under $20,000 than the Honda Fit,” said AUTOMOBILEeditor-in-chief Mike Floyd. “It’s fun to hustle around, especially when its updated engine is mated to its new six-speed manual. It’s pulled off adding more rear seat and cargo area—all while decreasing its overall footprint. And it’s available with more options and safety features than ever before. The Fit is still very much go, and it’s a 2015 AUTOMOBILE All-Star as a result.”
This win for the 2015 Fit marks the 20th time a Honda has been named an AUTOMOBILE All-Star since the award’s inception in 1990. Past Honda All-Stars, in addition to the Fit, include the Civic, Element, Prelude, Odyssey, Accord and Ridgeline.
