The United Services Automobile Association (USAA) is a financial services company that offers banking, investing, and insurance to military veterans and their families. Their goal is to ensure that those who serve in the armed forces, and their families, have a financial institution that they can depend on. As such, USAA goes out of its way to help educate car buyers who use their services by offering a list of vehicles that they feel provide the best value on the road.
And where does Honda fit into the equation? If you guessed on a number categories on the company's list, you would be correct. In the most recent "USAA Preferred: Best Value" list, the 2012 Honda Civic and 2012 Honda Fit have already earned spots in the "Small Sedan" and "Wagon" categories respectively. And now, the latest Honda addition to the list comes in the form of the 2012 Honda CR-Z. Specifically, it's being honored in the "Coupe" category.
But why exactly did it make the cut? "The CR-Z creates a whole new value category as the first true sport hybrid, offering great fuel economy, a low entry price, an available 6-speed manual transmission and a feisty change of character with the push of the Sport button," explains Mike Accavitti, Vice President of National Marketing Operations for American Honda. "It's like having two cars for the price of one."1
And if that's not reason enough to include it on the "USAA Preferred: Best Value" list, then we don't know what is. And what's more, that isn't the only honor that the sports hybrid coupe from the Big H received. The 2012 Honda CR-Z has also been featured on USAA's "2012 Top 10 for Teens" list.
Of course, in the end, we know that the only opinion concerning the 2012 Honda CR-Z, or any other new Honda for that matter, is yours.
