2016 Honda Civic grabs Car of the Year honors in North America

2016 Honda Civic Sedan The 2016 Honda Civic has been conferred the Car of the Year title in North America; the second time the Civic has garnered this recognition. Previously, the 8th-generation Civic was accorded the (NACOTY) North American Car of the Year in 2006, alongside the Honda Ridgeline that won the Truck of the Year title. Eleven Honda vehicles have entered as finalists in NACOTY, since 1994

“The new Civic was developed and is built in North America, making this North American Car of the Year win even sweeter,” said Honda U.S.A. in a press statement. Civic is a cornerstone of the Honda lineup, and the company is delighted that the automotive press has recognized the new levels of styling, performance, advanced technology, safety and value that characterize the new Civic.

The North American Car of the Year Award is given by a group of 53 international automotive journalists. The award is unique because instead of being given by a single publication, radio or television station, it is given by automotive journalists from the United States and Canada.

Presented each year at the opening of the NAIAS (North American International Auto Show) in Detroit, it recognizes the most outstanding car of the year based on factors including innovation, design, safety performance, handling, driver satisfaction and value.

Truly all-new, the 2016 Civic features a new vehicle architecture; sporty and sophisticated new interior and exterior styling; a more spacious and high-quality cabin; two advanced new engines; and a host of new available premium features and technologies, including the first application of both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in a compact car sold anywhere in the world.

Further, with the addition of Honda Sensing safety and driver-assistive technologies and the first application of Honda turbo engine technology to Civic, the 2016 Civic offers buyers a wider range of options than ever before.

With vehicle development led by Honda R&D Americas, Inc. and Civic Sedan and Coupe production in Indiana and Ontario, Canada, the new 10th-generation Civic firmly has its roots in North America. The majority of Civics sold in the United States will be produced and assembled using domestic and globally sourced parts in the United States and Canada.
