Honda Accord AwardsThe 2014 Honda Accord and the 2014 Honda Odyssey, two of the most popular models in the Honda lineup, were recently honored with a pair of prestigious awards. It turns out critics are just now discovering what so many drivers already know: the Accord and Odyssey offer nearly unparalleled levels of value. Here is a brief rundown of both awards.

Best Value From Kiplinger’s Personal Finance

Kiplinger’s Personal Finance recently ranked some of the most popular models on the road to determine which ones offered drivers the greatest levels of value. Honda was honored twice. The 2014 Honda Accord won for being the best in class in the $25,000-$30,000 range, and the Odyssey won for being best in class in the minivan category.

In order to determine value, the judges incorporated a number of variables. They looked at price, roominess, performance, safety, value, and driving impressions. The vehicles that were able to offer the greatest levels of automotive excellence for the lowest price were singled out. Drivers in the market for vehicles that deliver a lot but are affordably priced should take a closer look at either of these Honda models.

Best Eco-Friendly Vehicle From MotorWeek

The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid was named the best eco-friendly vehicle by the editors at MotorWeek. That means it beat out popular models like the Toyota Prius and the Nissan Leaf. The editors pointed to the 2014 Accord Hybrid’s amazing 50 mpg in the city rating.* They were also eager to note this is a hybrid that does not drive like a hybrid. It offers the same levels of performance and comfort drivers have come to expect from the Accord, but it does it with a fraction of the gasoline. It is also worth noting this is the 30th time that Honda Motors has been honored by MotorWeek.
