Honda Motor Co. has earned the Best Value Brand, Most Trusted Brand and Best Overall Brand Image Award in the 2013 Kelley Blue Book Brand Image Awards. The awards are based on the results from over 12,000 New Car shoppers using its Web page to do research. The Kelly Blue Book Brand Image Awards honor the automotive brands that have most successfully captured positive consumer attention.
“Honda was named Best Overall Brand by non-luxury shoppers, which speaks to Honda’s stellar reputation and brand leadership in the minds of consumers,” said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst, Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com. “In addition, Honda was awarded Most Trusted Brand for the second year in a row, and Best Value Brand for the third year running. Receiving consecutive awards in key categories like ‘Trust’ and ‘Value’ demonstrates the positive attributes of the Honda brand continue to resonate with the new-car buying public.”
Kelley Blue Books On Honda Awards
Here is what Kelley Blue Book had to say about Honda when announcing these prestigious awards.
2013 Honda – Best Value Brand
“Affordability, reliability and good resale value are key facets of new-car value, and Honda scores at or near the top in all three, earning from KBB.com visitors another Best Value Brand award.”
2013 Honda – Most Trusted Brand
“This is the second year we’ve asked visitors to name their Most Trusted Brand, and it’s the second year in a row they’ve named Honda. With a reputation that precedes it and vehicles that seemingly never fail to deliver on the promise, Honda is like the perpetual motion machine of brand trust.”
2013 Honda – Brand Image Awards: Best Overall Brand
“We saved the biggest award for last, but after its wins in the Best Value Brand and Most Trusted Brand categories, Honda’s win as Best Overall Brand among non-luxury shoppers hardly comes as a surprise. We admire the refined and reliable vehicles, but also the manner in which Honda promotes itself. You do too, apparently.”
