The All-New 2023 Honda CR-V Wins Car and Driver 10Best Award
Honda has won another Car and Driver 10Best Award, with the fully updated 2023 CR-V being named to the truck and SUV 10Best list. Following last month’s 10Best car list where both Accord and Civic won awards, Honda now has more awards than any other automaker with three vehicles in the model lineup earning the award this year.
In fact with 69 total awards, Honda is the winningest brand in Car and Driver 10Best history. At least one Honda has earned a spot on the annual list every year since the award's inception in 1983. Accord is also far and away the most awarded vehicle in Car and Driver 10Best history, making the prestigious list an incredible 37 times, including the last 25 years consecutively.
What Car and Driver Loved about the Honda CR-V
“The CR-V is a well-rounded package that punches way above its weight on multiple levels,”
said the editors at Car and Driver.
“That impression starts as soon as you close the door and start rolling, as the structure of the new CR-V immediately feels tight, hushed, and substantial. The body shell is more rigid, and there’s more sound insulation in the cowl, firewall, and instrument panel areas. Once you’re underway, the new CR-V delivers the kind of smoothness you expect from a more expensive vehicle. The steering is willing and pairs to a chassis that cuts a steady arc through turns. The interior feels rich, too, with an attractive styling theme shared with the Honda Civic, a 10Best Cars winner. The Touring Hybrid in Canada features a hybrid system that delivers up to 40 mpg combined; they’re our most recommended versions of this much-recommended vehicle.”
How Car and Driver Choose the Winning Vehicles
Car and Driver editors closely evaluated every new or substantially updated vehicle and voted on each using a 100-point scale. To make the list, each vehicle must deliver on its intended purpose better than its competition, offer great value, and be entertaining to drive. Any truck, SUV, or van with a base price higher than $110,000 was excluded from consideration, based on the editors’ belief that a high price should guarantee excellence.
