2018 Honda Accord Receives Two Prestigious Titles

In just a few days, the new 2018 Honda Accord received two prestigious titles, one from a panel of 60 journalists from Canada and the United States, and the other from the Automotive Journalists Association of Canada.

This is further evidence that the new 2018 Honda Accord is more than ever able to meet the needs of mid-size sedan buyers.

The first title was presented at the North American International Auto Show in the second week of January. This is the title of North American Car of the Year, a title already won by the Honda Civic two years ago. Last year, it was the Honda Ridgeline that won the honors, but on the truck side of things.

“Honda took a clean-sheet approach to reinventing America’s most popular car, and we couldn’t be prouder to receive this honor for Accord as the North American Car of the Year,” said Henio Arcangeli, Jr., senior vice president of the Automobile Division and general manager of Honda Sales, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “We’re especially proud for the production associates in Ohio where Accord has been built to the highest quality standards for over 35 years.”

A few days later, the 2018 Honda Accord was named the winner in its segment by the Automotive Journalists Association of Canada. This means that the new Accord, in addition to being the best new car in its segment, is also now in the running for the Canadian Car of the Year title, a title that will be presented by AJAC during the International Auto Show in Toronto on February 15th.

Introduced just a few months ago, the new 2018 Honda Accord has been upgraded in every possible way starting with a larger and more spacious interior. That said, it's under the hood that we notice the most significant changes as the 2018 Honda Accord is now available with a choice of turbocharged engines that are both more economical and more powerful.

“On behalf of all our associates across the country, I’d like to thank AJAC for these awards,” said Jean Marc Leclerc, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Honda Canada Inc. “We’re extremely proud to see the Honda Accord and Acura MDX recognized by so many of Canada’s top journalists.”
