ALG Awards Show Drivers the Cars with Highest Residual Value Forecasts
The annual ALG Residual Value Awards (RVA) look across 26 segments to determine the cars with highest residual value predictions after three years. Since high residual value is associated with reliability and brand popularity, it’s something to consider when you’re buying new, and you’ll find a whole host of ALG winners at your local Honda showroom.
Honda Pilot: Best Midsize Utility 3rd Row Seating
Honda Accord: Best Midsize Passenger Car
Honda Odyssey: Best Minivan
Honda Fit: Best Subcompact
Even with space for eight and up to 109 cubic feet of cargo space, the Honda Pilot remains responsive and capable thanks to a V6 engine, Intelligent Traction Management System, and 5,000 lbs. towing capacity. It’s also been extensively revised for the 2019 model year, with upgrades covering everything from a re-sculpted front and rear to standard Honda Sensing®.
The Honda Accord is one of the world’s most popular sedans, and it’s been recognized a record 33 times on Car and Driver’s 10 Best list. This year’s model delivers upgraded safety courtesy of Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR), plus a 192 hp, 192 lb-ft of torque output that puts its head and shoulders above competing midsize sedans.
ALG reports that the Honda Odyssey keeps its winning spot “thanks to features such as the multi-configurable Magic Slide second-row seats™, CabinWatch® and CabinTalk™, and available Honda Sensing®.” From safety features to interior versatility, it’s a perfect expression of the modern family minivan.
This marks the fifth consecutive win for the Honda Fit, which ALG attributes to “the unparalleled cargo and passenger flexibility of its 2nd-row Magic Seat®.” You can carry up to 52.7 cubic feet of cargo and switch between four interior configurations: Tall Mode, Long Mode, Utility Mode, and Refresh Mode. Premium features rarely found in the subcompact class include: Heated Front Seats, Android Auto/Apple CarPlay, and a Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System®.
