2023 Civic and Odyssey Named "Best Cars for the Money"

U.S. News & World Report Has Named Civic and Odyssey "Best Car for the Money"

January 19, 2023 | Torrington, CT

It's a new year and it's time for U.S. News & World Report to roll out their prestigious Best Car awards for the new automobile models and the team at Sullivan Honda is not at all surprised that Honda has not one, but two vehicles recognized for their outstanding quality and value. The 2023 Honda Civic topped the Compact Car class and the 2023 Honda Odyssey took the honors in the minivan category.

Honda Civic

From its sleek styling to its airy cabin, the Civic Sedan is a joy to behold and even better to drive. Its low, wide frame and expansive glass areas create a powerful look from the outside while enhancing the view from the inside. Preferred by Torrington Honda shoppers, the Civic is the best-selling compact car in America and continues its popularity with the 2023 edition's appeal.

"We're proud to give the Honda Civic its second consecutive Best Car for the Money award, and the data makes it easy to see why the Civic is our top pick," said Jim Sharifi, managing editor of U.S. News Best Cars. "The recently redesigned Civic earns a top spot in our rankings and delivers one of the lowest ownership costs in its class. Great gas mileage helps keep fuel costs in check and the Civic comes with plenty of standard technology features. Controlled handling also makes it a small car that's fun to drive."

Honda Odyssey

"Honda has a clear winner with the 2023 Odyssey, which takes home the Best Minivan for the Money award for the third year in a row and the seventh time overall," said Jim Sharifi, managing editor of U.S. News Best Cars. "The Odyssey has a competitive base price and earns a top position in our minivan rankings. It also delivers plenty of space, intuitive technology features and a smooth, comfortable ride." 

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.
