Honda has enjoyed a lot of success at the Detroit Auto Show over the course of the last few years. In 2016, the Honda Civic took home the coveted Car of the Year award, and in 2017, the Honda Ridgeline was recognized as the official Truck of the Year. As of Monday, January 15, Honda can add yet another Car of the Year award to its trophy case.
The Honda Accord was named the 2018 Car of the Year at the Detroit Auto Show, beating out the Toyota Camry and the Kia Stinger in the process.
One of the most noteworthy reasons the Honda Accord was able to snag the 2018 Car of the Year award is because this year’s model looks and feels different than those that came before it. The 2018 Accord not only gives people the opportunity to pick between two different four-cylinder turbocharged engines, but to choose between hybrid and high-performance versions, as well. Additionally, despite the sleeker appearance of the new Accord, Honda has found a way to give you more interior space.
We should also mention that there were several other big awards handed out at the Detroit Auto Show, as well. The Lincoln Navigator, which has been re-engineered for 2018, was named the Truck of the Year at the auto show. Meanwhile, the Volvo XC60 was awarded the Utility of the Year, due in large part to Volvo’s commitment to creating all of its new vehicles with four-cylinder engines.
The Detroit Auto Show, which was held at the Cobo Center in Detroit, took place for public viewing from January 20 through January 28. The Accord and many other new automobiles were proudly be on display for all to see.
