What is the North American Car of the Year Award?

Presented every January at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the North American Car of the Year Award is selected by an independent group of journalists. To qualify, a vehicle needs to be a new model or have undergone a comprehensive redesign. Group members are asked to rate cars on the following areas:

  • Design
  • Safety
  • Handling
  • Innovation
  • Driver Satisfaction
  • Overall Value

To earn this award, the Accord had to offer more than other competing models like the 2018 Kia Stinger and the 2018 Toyota Camry, and it’s available to drive today at Motor Werks Honda!

2018 Brings a Big Accord Redesign

New features like standard active safety systems in the Honda Sensing package helped the Accord rise above the rest. As Henio Arcangeli Jr., general manager of Honda Sales at American Honda Motor Co., Inc., said, “Honda took a clean-sheet approach to reinventing America’s most popular car, and we couldn’t be prouder to receive this honor…” The Accord joins other models like Honda Civic in 2016 and the Honda Ridgeline, which won for Best Pickup in 2017.
