2021 “Best Cars for the Money”: Honda CR-V, Passport and Odyssey

While many think the cheapest car makes the best deal, there are hidden costs in those low prices. U.S. News & World Report ranks their Best Cars for the Money not strictly by the lowest price or steepest discount, but factors in important aspects of each vehicle from reliability and safety to enjoyment and resale value. Sure, cost plays a role, but it is nowhere near the only reason to buy a car, nor the most important. Honda is proud to have three 2021 Honda models listed in U.S. News & World Report’s “2021 Best Cars for the Money”. The adventure-ready 2021 Honda Passport, the family-friendly 2021 Honda Odyssey and the versatile 2021 Honda CR-V. 

Honda’s are known for their reliability, safety and for holding their resale value. As an ever-evolving brand, Honda’s are now also known for being stylish, fun to drive, and technologically advanced. All three of the 2021 award winner embody these characteristics and are affordable to boot. Whether you want a family-hauler like the 2021 Honda Odyssey, an off-road champion like the 2021 Honda Passport, or a do-anything, go-anywhere crossover SUV like the 2021 Honda CR-V, you can find a model you’ll love and a price you can handle. And Hayward Honda can help you find it. Learn more about each new 2021 Honda below.
