These two iconic nameplates from Honda’s broad vehicle portfolio were critical in making Honda the top retail-selling passenger car brand in 20181 and with posting its best-ever annual sales of light trucks last year. Of the Best Sedan winner, Alistair Weaver, Edmunds editor-in-chief, said, “The Honda Accord personifies the term ‘best in class’ and hits all the right marks – not just for a mid-size sedan. Spacious, easy-to-drive, tech-savvy and surprisingly upscale compared to its rivals, the Accord gives you a whole lot of car for your money and is our favorite sedan of the year.” Weaver noted for the Best SUV winner that, “The Honda CR-V dominates the fiercely competitive small SUV segment and earns our top spot among all SUVs for 2019. Practical, yet punchy; compact but spacious, the CR-V is simply the most well-rounded and thoughtfully designed SUV on the road today.”
The winners of the seven Edmunds Editors’ Choice Award are chosen from the hundreds of vehicles the editors review each year based on how they rank in more than 30 criteria across the five evaluation categories of Driving/Performance, Comfort, Interior, Utility and Technology.
