2018 Honda AccordMay 2nd, 2018
Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) Car of the Year
The 10th-generation Accord is completely new from the ground up and features a lighter and more rigid body structure, an advanced new chassis design, two all-new, high-torque VTEC® direct-injected and turbocharged engines, the world’s first 10-speed automatic transmission for a front-drive car and a new generation of Honda’s two-motor hybrid technology. Add to that a host of new safety, driver-assistive and connected-car technologies – all wrapped in a more sophisticated, sleek and athletic design with top class interior space and comfort.
Clearly, we’re impressed. But, so is the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada:
AJAC 2018 Canadian Car of the Year
The all-new 2018 Honda Accord has earned the Canadian Car of the Year award presented by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC). The previous generation Accord was also the recipient of the award in 2013.
AJAC 2018 Best Large Car
The 2018 Accord midsize sedan was also named Automobile Journalists Association of Canada’s (AJAC) Best Large Car and…
2018 North American Car of the Year
The all-new 2018 Honda Accord, the 10th generation of America’s most popular car, has also earned the prestigious 2018 North American Car of the Year award. Accord’s win marks the third consecutive year that a Honda model has received top honours.
“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 CNET’s Chris Paukert, a juror who voted on the award.
Still need convincing? Consider these additional accolades:
Kelly Blue Book Best Resale Value Award
“Offering the latest in driver safety features, audio and connectivity technology and styling -as well as superior quality, reliability and value- the all-new Accord has been awarded Best Resale Value in the Midsize Car category”
Kelly Blue Book Best Buy Award
“The smart and sophisticated 2018 Honda Accord has been named Best Buy of the Year among midsize cars.”
Kelly Blue Book Best Buy Award
Kelly Blue Book’s KBB.com named the 2018 Accord the Overall Best Buy of the Year saying “Value without compromise is as rare as it is desirable, and its why the all-new Accord is our Overall Best Buy for 2018.”
Car and Driver Magazine 10 Best Awards
“The Accord has earned the Car and Driver’s 10Best Award for an unprecedented 32nd time – upholding a reputation of innovation for continually developing world-class safety features, efficiency and design”
Car and Driver’s America’s Best Sedan
“Packed with advanced technology, Honda Sensing standard, a spacious premium interior and a turbocharged engine, the all-new Accord has raised the bar for the segment yet again”
Two things are for certain: Honda is going to have to build some more shelving to accommodate all of the awards and accolades that the 2018 Accord is being bestowed with, and more importantly, you need to drive one immediately.
