Did Honda win any Car & Driver Editors' Choice Awards?

As we mentioned a few days ago, and have likely mentioned many times in the past, we love it when Honda vehicles get prestigious awards. For the vehicles that we offer here in our showroom to get recognized by big-time publications like Motor Trend and Kelley Blue Book, it’s a pretty big deal. We can tell you how great our vehicles are until we’re blue in the face, but you don’t know if we’re speaking from the heart or just blowing smoke (we always speak from the heart, by the way). But awards show you that it’s not just us, it’s some reputable people’s feelings as well. With the Car & Driver Editors’ Choice awards having just been announced, you might be wondering if Honda won any. The answer is yes!

How to Win an Editors’ Choice Award

At Car & Driver, the Editors’ Choice awards are decided by a panelist of the website/publication’s editors, hence the name. They drove and reviewed hundreds of different candidates from the nearly 500 vehicles available on the market today, and the only vehicles that earned guaranteed spots were those who already made the 10Best Cars and 10Best Trucks & SUVs lists. They then looked at things like their Buyer’s Guide in-depth testing, how well a vehicle performed on their test track, among other criteria. They then narrowed vehicles down into different segments, of course, though unlike most awards and lists, each segment doesn’t necessarily have a single winner. These awards are simply given to all of the vehicles that the Car & Driver editors think are worthwhile.

Honda Winners

In total, ten different Honda vehicles earned Editors’ Choice Awards from the fine folks at Car & Driver. In the Compact Crossovers/SUVs category, the Honda CR-V was recognized. In the Compact Sedans class, both the Honda Civic and Honda Civic Si earned awards. The Honda Accord, which made it onto the 10Best Cars list, was obviously a shoe-in for the Mid-Size Sedans segment. In the Subcompact Hatchbacks segment, the Honda Fit ranked among the winners, while it’s no surprise that the Honda Civic Type R – the other Honda car on the 10Best list – was recognized in the Compact Hatchbacks segment alongside the more conventional Honda Civic Hatchback.

Which brings us to the final three, which are more exciting than all the rest in our opinion. The Honda Civic Si was recognized again in a second category: Compact Coupes and Convertibles. The Honda Odyssey was one of only two minivans recognized, alongside the Chrysler Pacifica. And last but obviously not least, the Honda Ridgeline was the one and only midsize pickup truck recognized in its segment.
