The 2018 Honda Accord is the Winner of the 2018 North American Car of the Year Award

The 2018 North American Car, Utility and Truck of the Year Awards named the 2018 Honda Accord the 2018 North American Car of the Year. Each year, 60 judges are chosen from automotive news mediums across the United States and Canada. These awards honor excellence in innovation, design, safety, performance, technology, driver satisfaction and value. This is the 24th year for the North American Car, Utility and Truck of the Year Awards.

The 2018 Honda Accord made a major impression on all 60 judges. Its innovative 10th generation redesign has given the Accord a stylish new aggressiveness without sacrificing ergonomics.

“Honda seems to have executed some sort of magic trick — not only is this 10th-generation Accord far sleeker and more decisively styled than its predecessor, it’s somehow roomier inside, too,” said Chris Paukert, a NACTOY juror and managing editor of Road Show by CNET. “Even in low-end trims, it drives well and offers a strong amount of standard equipment.”

The 2018 Honda Accord offers consumers more value and options than its competitors without taking away from engine performance or aesthetic appeal.

NACTOY evaluated cars throughout the industry and came to three finalist in the Car category. The 2018 Honda Accord, the 2018 Kia Stinger, and the 2018 Toyota Camry, were all recognized as being top of their class this year. Honda stood out among the finalist based on its overall value, style, and standard features.

“Honda took a clean-sheet approach to reinventing America’s most popular car, and we couldn’t be prouder to receive this honor for Accord as the North American Car of the Year,” said Henio Arcangeli, Jr., senior vice president of the Automobile Division and general manager of Honda Sales, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “We’re especially proud for the production associates in Ohio where Accord has been built to the highest quality standards for over 35 years.”

Honda was also the only manufacturer to have 2 vehicles make it to the finals if the North American Car, Utility and Truck of the Year Awards. The 2018 Honda Odyssey was also chosen as a finalist for Utility Vehicle of the Year, but was slightly edged out by the 2018 Volvo XC60.
