2021 Honda CR-V, Passport and Odyssey Named 'Best Cars for the Money
  • he 2021 Honda CR-V Passport and Odyssey were all named to U.S. News and World Report's "Best Car for the Money" awards.
  • The "Best Cars for the Money" awards methodology combines measures of quality and value to create an overall award score.

 

The 2021 Honda CR-V, Passport and Odyssey have each won U.S. News and World Report "Best Car for the Money" awards in the magazine's 2021 new car rankings.

CR-V captured the compact SUV title. "The CR-V is proof that a top-ranked car doesn't have to be a budget buster," said U.S. News & World Report Executive Editor Jaime Paige Deaton. "Critics and buyers alike love how easy the CR-V is to live with. Its low ownership costs are the perfect complement to the CR-V's practicality."

Passport prevailed in the 2-row sport utility vehicle category. "The Passport is the perfect example of a car that balances value and quality," said Deaton. "Though it isn't the least expensive SUV in its class, it offers great long-term value, with plenty of space and comfort, and strong recommendations from critics."

The Honda Odyssey triumphed in the minivan class. "Given how roomy and upscale the cabin on the Honda Odyssey is, you might be surprised to find that it's not a budget buster," Deaton noted. "While it's not the cheapest minivan on the market, it does have the best combination of quality and value." 

The "Best Cars for the Money" awards methodology combines measures of quality and value to create an overall award score. Quality is measured by the overall score a vehicle achieved in the U.S. News car rankings at the time the awards are published. The rankings, updated monthly at www.usnews.com/cars, 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.

2021 Honda Ridgeline

2021 Honda Ridgeline Arriving Next Month Ready to Rumble with Rugged New Look

JANUARY 14, 2021

  • Redesigned Ridgeline coming to Honda dealerships starting Feb. 2
  • Bold exterior design reflects Ridgeline’s exceptionally rugged capabilities
  • Fully boxed truss-style floor frame and standard torque-vectoring i-VTM4® all-wheel drive system help deliver best-in-class AWD hauling
  • Unmatched versatility includes widest bed in class, with Dual-Action Tailgate and In-Bed Trunk®, and segment’s largest interior for passengers and gear

The 2021 Honda Ridgeline begins arriving at Honda dealerships on Feb. 2, with bold new styling underscoring its rugged and versatile pickup truck capabilities. Ridgeline’s standard V6 power, fully independent suspension and standard torque-vectoring i-VTM4® all-wheel drive give it the capability to tackle challenging trails and treacherous roads with class-leading ride and handling. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Prices (MSRP) start at $36,490.

Ridgeline continues to bring unmatched versatility, including the segment’s largest interior for passengers and gear, a brilliantly versatile bed featuring the class-exclusive In-Bed Trunk® lockable storage compartment, and best-in-class standard AWD model payload capacity.

For the 2021 model year, Ridgeline features all-new sheet metal from the front roof pillars forward, including a new hood with a pronounced power bulge, a new squared off nose and upright grille, and new front fenders. Flanking the grille are new, brighter LED headlights bisected by the crossbar atop the grille, which is painted gloss black on Sport trims and Black Edition, and is chrome plated on RTL and RTL-E. The body-color lower front bumper further accentuates the Ridgeline’s tough new look with a prominent skid plate and broad side vents that create air curtains to route air through the bumper and around the front tires and wheels to improve aerodynamic performance. A reshaped rear bumper exposes aggressive new twin exhaust outlets, and all Ridgeline trims feature tougher looking 18-inch wheels and an additional 20 mm of track width to give Ridgeline a broader, more planted stance. New tires top off the more rugged look with a more aggressive sidewall and shoulder design. Ridgeline also adds a new Radiant Red Metallic to its exterior color palette.

A new HPD Package was developed in collaboration with Honda Performance Development (HPD), Honda’s U.S.-based racing company, and adds a unique grille treatment, an HPD emblem, black fender flares, aggressive bronze-colored wheels, and special HPD graphics on the side of the bed—for a suggested retail price of $2,800. It’s one of four new post-production option packages available on all Ridgeline trims that include Utility ($1,465), Function ($270), and Function+ ($1,315).

Inside, the 2021 Ridgeline adds a physical volume knob for the audio system, and wireless phone charging. Plus, all Ridgeline trims get new contrast stitching on the seats; Sport trims add new cloth seat inserts; and Sport, RTL and RTL-E trims have new dash, steering wheel and center console accents. Ridgeline’s spacious cabin offers top-class passenger comfort and rear-seat legroom, with a flat floor and foldaway 60/40-split rear seat bottoms, offering enhanced flexibility for carrying long and tall items in the cabin.

2021 Honda Accord Earns IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ Rating

DECEMBER 15, 2020

  • Seven Honda models now rated TSP or better, with three rated TSP+
  • Accord and all other fully tested Honda vehicles also earn top U.S. government crash-test ratings

The refreshed 2021 Honda Accord has earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) highest accolade, the 2020 TOP SAFETY PICK+ (TSP+) rating. Further, Accord’s standard front crash prevention system earned “SUPERIOR” ratings from IIHS in vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian avoidance tests. A combined seven Honda models have earned 2020 TSP ratings or better, with Accord, Insight and Odyssey achieving the pinnacle TSP+ rating.

Based on Honda’s “Safety for Everyone” approach, all Accord models provide the Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies as standard equipment on all trim levels, including Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) with Pedestrian Detection; Forward Collision Warning; Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) incorporating Lane Departure Warning (LDW); Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS); and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). Honda Sensing® is now standard or available on all new Honda models, equipped on nearly 4 million Honda vehicles on U.S. roads today.
 
All Honda vehicles also benefit from Honda’s proprietary Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, designed to help protect occupants in a wide variety of frontal collisions, along with advanced supplemental restraint systems.

To qualify for a 2020 TOP SAFETY PICK+ award, a vehicle must earn “GOOD” ratings in six crashworthiness evaluations, including the driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests. It also needs “ADVANCED” or “SUPERIOR” ratings for both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian front crash prevention, as well as “ACCEPTABLE” or “GOOD” headlight ratings across all trim levels.

Separately, every Honda model that has been fully evaluated in the NHTSA’s 2021 model year NCAP testing, including Accord, has received a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score.
