Honda Accord and Civic Named to Car and Driver Magazine 10Best

November 30th, 2017 by

America’s first and second best retail selling cars1 receive Car and Driver 10Best awards, Civic in Hatchback Sport, Si and Type R variants and Accord for a record 32nd time

The all-new 2018 Honda Accord and the 2018 Civic Hatchback Sport, Si and Type R have been named to Car and Drivermagazine’s 10Best list for 2018. This marks the 32nd time that Accord has made the prestigious 10Best list, a feat unmatched by any other vehicle. It is the sixth time Civic has made the 10Best list.

The 10th generation Accord, dubbed by the experts at Car and Driver as “America’s Best Sedan” (November 2017 issue), benefits from the most radical redesign in the model’s 41-year history, including dramatic new styling, a more sophisticated and spacious interior and two all-new turbocharged powerplants. The Accord 1.5T launched on Oct. 18 and was joined earlier this month by the Accord 2.0T. The all-new 2018 Accord Hybrid will launch next year.

The Civic Sport Hatchback, Si and Type R are the latest editions to the 10th-generation Civic lineup, America’s best-selling car. The 306-horsepower2 Civic Type R is first Honda Type R sold in America and the fastest front-wheel drive production car around the famed Nürburgring circuit. The 10th-generation Civic Si Coupe, Si Sedan and Hatchback siblings also benefit from a completely reengineered body and chassis and new turbocharged engines, offering customers class-leading interior space and driving fun.
