Most drivers in the Capital Region already have good things to say about Honda, but now, there’s even more proof that this manufacturer’s vehicles are offering something special. The writers at MotorWeek have been presenting their Driver’s Choice Awards every year since 1983, and this time around, three of Honda’s models made the list. According to their results, the 2018 Honda Civic, the 2018 Honda Accord, and the 2018 Honda Odyssey are three of the best cars to buy.

Honda Models You’ll Love

In order to determine their Driver’s Choice Award winners, MotorWeek studies “the factors mattering most to consumers – price, practicality, performance and fuel efficiency.” It’s not hard to see that Honda’s models excel across the board.

  • 2018 Honda Civic: The Civic may run on the smaller side, but drivers who know what it can do recognize that it’s an energetic, exciting compact car that’s as fun to drive as it is efficient and affordable! Although drivers could find any number of reasons to love this year’s Civic, the writers at MotorWeek endeavored to direct our attention toward the Civic’s available Si Sedan, Si Coupe, and Type R models. Each has been designed to offer heightened performance to drivers who have a taste for adventure. The Civic Type R, for example, features carbon fiber accessories; innovative, integrated driving modes; and much more.
  • 2018 Honda Accord: MotorWeek’s choice for the 2018 Best Family Sedan went to the 2018 Honda Accord, which they say “fully embraces the trend of midsize sedans encroaching on luxury car territory.” The Honda Sensing safety package comes standard in every trim level, and what’s more, thanks to its 192-hp turbocharged engine, the Accord offers a rare balance of power, handling, and fuel efficiency. Its upper level trims come fully loaded with features like an Adaptive Damper System, Wireless Phone Charging, and a 450-Watt Premium Audio System.
  • 2018 Honda Odyssey: The 2018 Honda Odyssey has something for everyone. The writers at MotorWeek cite the fact that it offers “more comfort, more safety, and more family-friendly features” than competitors, but we could just as easily point to its smooth, responsive handling capabilities, or its near-limitless capacity for hauling cargo. The Honda Sensing safety package comes standard on the EX trim and up, and on upgraded models, you’ll also receive technologies like a Hands-Free Access Power Tailgate, a Rear Entertainment System, and Front and Rear Parking Sensors.
