“It’s hard to imagine that one of the most recommendable cars in the industry also happens to offer the latest infotainment, convenience and safety technology at a remarkably affordable price. But Honda made it so with the 2017 Civic, thus earning it a Best Auto Tech award in the area of value.”

The Honda Civic Sedan, and the Civic lineup as a whole, has won a number of awards this year already, not just from Kelley Blue Book but a number of different publications and organizations. But the Best Auto Tech Award is certainly one we’re excited about. While it might not get as much recognition as other, bigger awards, it does mean that our favorite compact sedan offers some of the most premium technology features on the market.
In the video below, which also analyzes the winner of the award’s luxury area, Vlasuk identifies a number of different technologies and features that led to the Civic getting the recognition. Among them were of course the Honda Sensing Safety Suite as well as things like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Be sure to watch the video for a full list.
