Honda Wins Car & Driver 10Best Awards

Honda has won more Car and Driver 10Best Awards, with the fully updated 2024 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 Accord

“Honda has not merely kept the Accord alive but continued to hone its brilliance.”
said the editors at Car and Driver. 

“In almost every way, this latest Accord is the best ever. Like Accords past, it hides its greatness under a conservatively styled suit of clothes. There's no flash, just substance, and this iteration confirms Honda's belief that now is the time for hybridization. The top four of the Accord's trims come strictly with a 204-hp hybrid powertrain. If you're solidly anti-hybrid, the two lower trim levels come standard with a 192-hp turbo 1.5-liter inline-four connected to a CVT.”

What captured Car and Driver's admiration for the Honda Civic:

“We're big fans of the Civic. It's a well-conceived, enjoyable, and economical car we can recommend to a subscriber just as easily as you could to a friend or family member without digging into what they can afford or how they drive. Wherever they are on those spectrums, they'll thank you later for suggesting a Honda Civic.” said the editors at Car and Driver.

Key Reasons Car and Driver Loved the Honda CR-V.

“The 2024 CR-V reminds us of the first-gen model in no way. Instead, it picks up where the Civic and Accord leave off. We get it. You don't want a sedan. You want to sit high. That's okay. And since Honda no longer makes an Accord wagon, the CR-V fills the void in the product portfolio almost perfectly.” said the editors at Car and Driver. 

“A turbocharged 1.5-litre inline-four, tuned for 190 horses and paired with a CVT, serves as the base motivator, and as with the Accord, the uplevel powertrain is a 204-hp hybrid setup. Both offer supreme refinement, an opinion backed up by the hybrid's interior sound-level measurements of 72 decibels at wide-open throttle and 68 decibels while cruising at 70 mph. All-wheel drive is available with either setup.”

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.
