KBB’s 2012 Brand Image Awards are based on consumer perception data from the company’s Brand Watch™ study, honoring the automakers that have attained outstanding positive consumer attention. Brand Watch is an online brand perception tracking study tapping into 12,000+ in-market new-vehicle shoppers annually on Kelley Blue Book's kbb.com.
This marks the fifth year Kelley Blue Book has awarded auto manufacturers the Brand Image Awards, and this year, there are multiple repeat winners. Honda being one of the repeat winners, taking the top spot for Best Value Brand, for the second year running.
"Image isn't everything but it is more than enough to get shoppers into the store, and that's half the battle for automakers and their dealers," said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book's kbb.com. "With standout vehicles, memorable marketing and positive word of mouth, the winners of Kelley Blue Book's 2012 Brand Image Awards have secured enviable positions in the minds of in-market shoppers."
Editorial comments from kbb.com about each category winner mentioned Honda as a reliable and dependable brand. Today, Honda vehicles are more and more becoming decade-long vehicles for families, giving the automaker the Most Trusted Brand award. One example being the famous story from Norway, Maine where “Million Mile Joe” drove his 1990 Honda Accord past one million miles on the odometer.
The second category Honda took the award for was Best Value Brand. Many car buyers consider price to be a main factor when purchasing a vehicle, but a vehicle’s resale value is something else to always consider. Honda’s reputation for resale value and exceptional quality continues to raise the bar in the industry of automotive value.
