2018 Honda CR-V Motor Trend SUV of the Year

We have been super stoked for the past couple of days, ever since we learned an exciting new bit of information. A couple of years ago, the fourth generation Honda CR-V was honored by receiving the 2015 Motor Trend SUV of the Year award for its facelifted version. Now, just a couple of years later, the sophomoric fifth-generation version of the compact Honda CR-V crossover has earned such an honor again: the 2018 Motor Trend SUV of the Year award.

“The 2018 Motor Trend award is a testament to the highly-skilled and dedicated Honda associates at our manufacturing plants across North America, including our team at Honda of Canada Manufacturing in Alliston, Ontario. Every new Honda CR-V sold in Canada is built right here in Canada, for Canadians, by Canadians.”

- Jean Marc Leclerc, Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Honda Canada

Winning the Award

It’s never easy to win a Motor Trend award. They’re some of the most prestigious awards available on the automotive market, so the SUV of the Year Award is one of the top honors a crossover like the CR-V can earn. This year, the CR-V had to beat out a total of 25 other contenders to the title. Eleven of Motor Trend’s judges – which range from editors, writers, testers, etc. – but each vehicle through an exhaustive battery of tests, and in the end the CR-V stood tall above its competitors.

Things like its “swanky interior” helped the CR-V regain this honor, as the judges looked at everything from design to safety to value and more. We couldn’t be prouder to offer the 2018 Honda CR-V, aka the 2018 Motor Trend SUV of the Year. If you’re interested in one for yourself, be sure to get in touch with us here at Wheaton Honda!
