Choosing between New, Used, or Certified Pre-Owned Honda Models
Deciding between new, used, or Certified Pre-Owned Honda models may seem daunting when there are so many options to choose from, but there are ways to decide. Each option gives you different price ranges, as well as different warranty coverage.
New Honda models offer the latest technology and come with long warranties that further bolster the peace of mind that comes with buying a Honda. Financially speaking, buying or leasing a new vehicle is the most straightforward method of car ownership, especially with Gwinnett Place Honda here to support you in the unlikely situation that something goes wrong. The tradeoff for this most seamless of experiences is the higher cost of buying new - both upfront and with depreciation and insurance down the road.
Generally speaking, Hondas hold their value quite well, far better than cars from most other brands, so depreciation is a smaller financial factor for Honda models than for many other makes. Overall, choosing a brand new Honda model is best when one is willing to forgo maximum savings in the name of maximum convenience and a virtually absolute multi-layered safety net.
Used Honda models offer significant savings, especially as the worst depreciation has already occurred with these vehicles. But it should be noted that low prices do not mean low quality. Honda cars and trucks are known for going hundreds of thousands of miles without major problems when properly maintained.
That said, good chances and a good reputation are not as actionable as a warranty, and used vehicles rarely have much, if any, warranty time or mileage left. Many people count on out-of-warranty Hondas to get them to work every day, and they do so without incident. Still, a warranty is a safety net largely unavailable to used vehicles. If repairs do come up, not having that warranty will erode the cost savings somewhat. Even so, used Honda models are the least expensive option. Overall, if one knows what to look for in a used car, there are savings to be had here. Otherwise, there are better alternatives.
Certified Pre-Owned Honda models strike something of a balance between brand new cars and warranty-less used Hondas. These are all newer and low mileage models that are given a thorough 150-point inspection by certified Honda technicians, with all maintenance items brought up to date. The most important factor for Certified Pre-Owned Honda models is the extensive seven year / 100,000 mile powertrain limited warranty. This covers the engine, transmission, and driveline, the most complex and expensive components of the vehicle.
Certified Pre-Owned Honda models bought within the original New Vehicle Limited Warranty period also get a non-powertrain warranty lasting up to five years or 86,000 miles. Even if the original warranty expired before you purchased the car, you will still get a one year / 12,000 mile warranty applied from the delivery date. Certified Pre-Owned models also come with other like-new perks as well, such as roadside assistance and complimentary oil changes. Overall, Certified Pre-Owned Honda models offer a compelling mix of used car savings and new car peace of mind.

Honda's 2021 Models
Honda’s 2021 lineup continues to build on the brand’s reputation for offering affordable vehicles that are not only reliable but are also fun to drive, which we can’t help but think stems from Honda’s origins building some of the best motorcycles on the road. But, revving engines aside, the 2021 lineup adds to Honda’s legacy and begins with sedans like the Insight and Civic. That legacy extends to SUVs and crossovers like the HR-V, CR-V, Pilot, and Passport to spacious minivans like the Odyssey.
The 2021 lineup starts with the Insight, Civic, and Accord, the latter two of which continue to be staples for the Honda brand. The 2021 Insight proves its capability as a hybrid and is one of the safest vehicles on the road after earning the Top Safety Pick+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.*1 It’s also one of the most fuel-efficient models in the Honda fleet and averages 55 MPG in the city and 49 MPG on the highway, not to mention it offers an upscale interior and best-in-class passenger space.*2
For 2021, the Honda Accord remains unchanged, but there are a few tweaks to the Civic lineup. Although Honda bid farewell to the two-door Civic coupe and the Si, they filled the gap with the Type R Limited Edition. The Type R is a nod to the early model Integra Type R and features an exclusive Phoenix Yellow Pearl exterior with aggressive Michelin tires that are ready to test the speed limit. From this powerful road beast, we jump to the other end of the spectrum to the spacious Odyssey minivan that enjoys a mid-cycle refresh for 2021.
Honda’s crossovers and SUVs also see a few upgrades beginning with the small HR-V crossover that’s in its sixth year on the market. The HR-V doesn’t offer many upgrades for 2021 beyond a new wheel design on the Sport trim. The HR-V’s bigger sibling is the compact CR-V, which is a top-seller for Honda for many reasons - it’s spacious, comfortable, enjoyable to drive, and efficient. For 2021, Honda continues to offer the relatively new CR-V Hybrid that delivers even more efficiency to the tune of 40 MPG in the city and 35 MPG on the highway. The CR-V’s already impressive gas-powered EPA rating stays around 28 MPG in the city and 34 MPG on the highway.*3
With Honda introducing the Passport in 2019, the midsize crossover doesn’t see many upgrades for 2021 beyond the addition of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to its standard features. Drivers looking for more room will love the updates to the 2021 Pilot, which includes an all-new Special Edition model that boasts 20-inch wheels, a hands-free power tailgate, a wireless charging station, and black exterior accents. The 2021 Pilot also sees a huge improvement to its powertrain, with Honda replacing the six-speed transmission with an all-new nine-speed automatic transmission.
2021 Honda CR-V
The 2021 Honda CR-V and the CR-V Hybrid are impressive performers for Honda and offer an array of safety and convenience features as well as a spacious cabin and great fuel efficiency at a modest price. Since Honda gave the CR-V a midcycle refresh in 2020, the CR-V and the Hybrid are carryover models for 2021 and continue to offer the same remarkable features that make the compact SUV a best-seller. This begins with the CR-V’s affordability, with the gas-powered CR-V ranging between $25,350 and $33,650 and the Hybrid ranging between $30,560 and $36,350.*4
With the CR-V and the CR-V Hybrid equipped with the Honda Sensing Suite of safety and driver assistance technology, there’s no question that drivers have greater confidence when they get behind the wheel. Honda also ensures drivers have all the comforts and conveniences they need with a plethora of options like dual-zone automatic climate control, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, leather seats, and a hands-free power liftgate. And, as you can see from the prices, the Honda CR-V isn’t a budget-buster with even the highest-level trim that boasts every feature and convenience imaginable still reasonably priced.
The Honda CR-V has earned the SUV top honors from US News & World Report. Named the Best Car for the Money in 2021, the award measures the quality and value of the vehicle.*5 Quality is measured in terms of safety and reliability, while a vehicle’s value is measured by the cost of ownership over five years and the average price of the vehicle when purchased new. The CR-V scored at the top of the charts and once again earned a coveted place among Honda’s best-sellers.
2021 Honda Passport
The two-row Passport is relatively new to the Honda lineup, with its introduction coming in 2019. Because of this, the 2021 Passport is a carryover model and includes only the addition of a Display Audio system and both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to its standard features. Despite these slight modifications to the 2021 model, the Passport earned high praise from US News & World Report and joins the CR-V as the Best Car for the Money.*6
Offering seating for five and an average fuel economy of 20 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the highway, the Passport garnered positive feedback across the board for offering great long-term value and quality.*7 This value and quality are evident across every trim, from the Sport base model that starts at $32,790 to the luxurious Elite, which starts at $44,180.*4 For example, the Sport offers the Honda’s Sensing Suite and Intelligent Traction Management system as well as a powerful 3.5-liter V6 engine that delivers 280 horsepower. The Elite takes luxury and convenience to the max with heated and ventilated seats, a heated steering wheel, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and wireless phone charging.
The biggest asset in the Passport (and the rest of the Honda lineup, for that matter) is the Honda Sensing Suite of safety and driver assistance features. This suite comes standard on every Passport and is designed to help drivers stay alert behind the wheel to minimize the potential for collisions. The suite includes innovative technology like the Road Departure Mitigation System, Lane Keeping Assist System, Adaptive Cruise Control, and the Collision Mitigation Braking System.
2021 Honda Odyssey
Joining the Pilot and the CR-V in earning US News & World Report’s honor as Best Car for the Money is the 2021 Honda Odyssey.*8 Leading the minivan class in quality, the Odyssey earned high marks for its spacious and upscale cabin that is a far cry from minivans of days past. This is exactly what Honda intended, and to the delight of drivers, it was done without sending the Odyssey’s price through the roof.
The Odyssey LX starts the minivan’s trim levels and is priced at $32,090, which includes seating for seven, LED headlights, Bluetooth compatibility, a multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines, the Honda Sensing suite, and much more. The trim is bettered by the EX, which starts at $35,490 and adds Magic Slide second-row seats, smart entry, a Blind Spot Information System, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. Next in the lineup is the EX-L that starts at $38,760 and sets the stage for the Touring. Priced at $42,800, the Touring combines comfort and luxury in a minivan with a rear entertainment system, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a variety of new technology features that’ll make you question if you’re truly in a minivan! However, if you want all of the best things this minivan has to offer, the $47,820 Elite is the Odyssey for you with all of the best features you can find.*4
