Honda CR-V, Passport, & Odyssey Named “Best Cars for the Money” by U.S. News & World Report
The 2021 Honda CR-V, Passport and Odyssey have each won U.S. News & World Report “Best Car for the Money” awards in the magazine’s 2021 new car rankings.
The Best Cars for the Money Awards methodology combines measures of quality and value to create an overall score. Quality is measured by the overall score a vehicle received in the U.S. News rankings.
The rankings compare cars based on safety, reliability, and a consensus of industry experts’ opinions. Value is measured by a combination of a vehicle’s five-year total cost of ownership and the average price paid for the vehicle at the time the awards are published.
