There are over 35 automotive brands in the US, each selling innumerable models and trims throughout a long list of vehicle types, which is why choosing the right brand for a particular need can seem daunting. That’s where the US News comes in – they ply their professional expertise and experience to help make our choices easier. This year, Honda was proud to accept their Best Car Brand distinction.

“Honda is known for decades of popular, reliable cars, including the venerable Accord and Civic sedans”, says US News. “However, there’s more to their car lineup, including our top-ranked subcompact and a growing portfolio of alternative-fuel vehicles. Honda cars consistently perform exceptionally well in our new car rankings.”

They applauded (and awarded) the Honda Civic family, citing it as one of their top-ranked compact cars. The Honda Accord’s completely new design has them intrigued, as well, with a high ranking among their midsize category. The Honda Fit also claimed a top spot in Subcompact Cars thanks in part to its near infinite flexibility and various configurations. Last, they are excited to experience the all-new 2018 Honda Clarity in the family of alternative fuel vehicles in its various incarnations: plug-in, electric and hydrogen-powered.
