If you’re looking for a new car or SUV on a modest budget, a Honda dealer is a great place to start your search. Whether you’re looking for a sporty coupe, an efficient hybrid, or a practical SUV, there’s a Honda for just about everybody looking for a good value. Add in Honda’s reputation for safety and reliability and you have a winning formula for a car that’s dependable and easy on your budget.
Here are five great new Hondas for under $30,000 for 2019.
2019 Honda Accord
The Honda Accord is an easy recommendation in midsize sedans for its styling, practicality and value. The Accord has just about everything you could ask for in a sedan. Its roomy interior will keep you and your passengers comfortable and its efficient engines won’t have you stopping at the pump too often. The hybrid model is especially efficient, returning excellent fuel economy of 48 miles per gallon in the city and 48 mpg on the highway. The hybrid isn’t much of a jump in price over the regular Accord and still starts at well below the $30k mark. Another thing we love about this Honda is its available manual transmission which is a feature that almost all of its rivals have dropped. There are a lot of great choices in the midsize sedan segment and the Honda Accord still stands out as a class leader. Find a Honda Accord for sale
2019 Honda Insight
If you like the idea of the Accord Hybrid but want something even more efficient and affordable, then it’s the Honda Insight to the rescue. The Insight has returned to the Honda lineup, this time as a compact sedan with a starting price in the low $20k range and outstanding fuel economy numbers of 55 mpg city/49 mpg hwy. You might think you’ll have to sacrifice comfort to achieve 55 mpg, but the Insight is a comfy, respectably roomy sedan and it has a huge trunk to boot. The Insight comes loaded generously with standard features on every trim including the Honda Sensing driver assistance tech suite which includes forward-collision mitigation, road-departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist. With a budget of $30k, you can go all the way up to the luxurious Touring trim which gives you leather seats which are heated in front, a power moonroof, mobile hotspot capability, remote start and much more. It may be subtle, but the Insight is quietly one of the best values in compact cars today. Find a Honda Insight for sale
2019 Honda CR-V
Some modern compact sport utility vehicles don’t have all that much utility. This is not the case with the extremely useful Honda CR-V. This versatile crossover offers a ton of passenger room and a cavernous cargo area, giving it a level of comfort and utility that might surprise you for an SUV of this size. It’s roomy enough that it makes for a great family vehicle as long as you don’t need a third row of seats. The CR-V is also great on gas, especially from its optional turbocharged engine which can be had while keeping the price under the $30,000 mark. If you’re shopping for a CR-V for under $30,000, the sweet spot is the EX trim with all-wheel drive (AWD) which gives you the better engine, an upgraded display audio system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, Honda Sensing and more.

2019 Honda Civic Si
Sure, you could get a normal Honda Civic, which is an outstanding compact car available as a sedan, coupe or hatchback, but if you have a budget of $30,000 and want to have a little more fun behind the wheel, we strongly recommend the Civic Si. The Si model can be had as either a coupe or a sedan and it’s an exceptional value in modern performance cars. It cranks out 205 horsepower from its lively turbocharged engine and has an adaptive damper suspension system which gives it excellent handling without sacrificing everyday comfort. The Civic Si is just as at home on a winding canyon road as it is on your daily commute. A 6-speed manual is the exclusive transmission choice in the Civic Si and it’s one of the best in the business which any enthusiast can appreciate. It may not win a lot of drag races, but this Honda is a blast to drive at any speed and a great value in new Hondas. Find a Honda Civic for sale
2019 Honda HR-V
Subcompact SUVs are a bit of a mixed bag when it comes to utility, and arguably the most versatile one out there is the Honda HR-V. It may be small, but there’s nothing "subcompact" about the huge interior of this SUV that seems to defy space itself. It has a back seat and a cargo area that you can actually use and an upscale interior that ensures that everyone is comfortable. There aren’t a lot of crossovers in this class that make for really good family vehicles, but the HR-V is certainly one of them (yes, you can even fit a big clunky stroller in the back). The HR-V also scores well in crash test ratings so you don’t need to worry about a vehicle this small being unsafe. Since the HR-V has such an affordable starting price, you can go all the way up to the Touring trim while keeping it under $30k which gives you standard AWD, Honda Sensing, navigation, leather seats, premium audio, LED headlights and much more.
