Car and Driver recently buried the Honda brand in both praise and awards during their annual Editor’s Choice Awards comparison.  The eight Honda models distinguished were recognized as the best in their respective categories and their highest recommendation for any respective buyers.  The Honda models were recognized across the full spectrum of vehicle classes, with the Honda Ridgeline enjoying the greater distinction of being the only vehicle of any brand to be selected in its category.

The following Honda models are 2018 Car & Driver “Editors’ Choice” award winners:

  • Mid-Size Sedans: 2018 Honda Accord
  • Compact Sedans: 2018 Honda Civic
  • Compact Sedans: 2018 Honda Civic Si
  • Compact Coupes and Convertibles: 2018 Honda Civic Si
  • Compact Hatchbacks: 2018 Honda Civic Type R
  • Compact Hatchbacks: 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback
  • Compact Crossovers/SUVs: 2018 Honda CR-V
  • Subcompact Hatchbacks: 2018 Honda Fit
  • Minivans/Vans: 2018 Honda Odyssey
  • Mid-Size Pickup Trucks: 2018 Honda Ridgeline

The Car and Driver staff immerse themselves for months in the appraisal process, reviewing and driving hundreds of candidates in myriad circumstances and conditions.  Out of the 450 models available nationally, these are the best of the best cars, crossovers, SUV models and pickups available in 2018.

The Accord is no surprise, as it has enjoyed a spot on Car and Driver’s 10Best list for 21 years.  They love its smooth, refined performance and composed handling.  “Just when you thought the Accord couldn’t get any better, the all-new model raises the bar”, says Car and Driver.

The Honda Civic was praised well, too: “The Civic exemplifies automotive excellence and mixes fun with efficiency and practicality. Precise steering, a solid chassis, and a well-tuned suspension provide both a compliant ride and sweet handling”, says C&D.

The Honda Ridgeline was appreciated for its contemporary features: “The Ridgeline’s roomy cabin, ample storage, smooth ride, and innovative touches make its rivals seem outdated—and also helped it earn back-to-back 10Best awards.”

And no Honda award list would be complete without mention of the Honda Civic Type R, which Car and Driver praises for delivering an astonishing mix of performance and poise.  Like the Accord and others, the Civic Type R was also a 10Best Cars winner in addition to this accolade.
