Honda Accord wins Car of the Year award

TORRANCE, Calif. — The all-new 2018 Honda Accord, the 10th generation of America’s most popular car, has earned the 2018 North American Car of the Year award.

The Accord’s win marks the third consecutive year that a Honda model has received top honors from the North American jury of automotive journalists, with the Honda Civic winning in 2016 and Honda Ridgeline winning in 2017.

The North American Car, Utility and Truck of the Year awards honor excellence in innovation, design, safety features, performance, technology, driver satisfaction and value. Initiated in 1994, they are judged by 60 professional automotive journalists from the United States and Canada who work for independent magazines, television, radio, newspapers and industry websites.

Over 10 generations and 41 years, American car buyers have made Accord the best-selling car in America, purchasing more than 13 million Accords. Accord was the first model from a Japanese automaker to be made in America, beginning in November 1982 in Marysville.
