The 2017 Civic and Accord Earn Top Accolades With Ease
The 2017 Honda Civic and 2017 Honda Accord have always been the apples of our eye, and we weren’t surprised to see them earn top accolades. We’ve seen these models light up numerous faces after a quick test drive, and it seems as if the people over at KBB and Car and Driver were just as excited once they experienced these two segment-topping vehicles for themselves. Keep reading to learn more about their recent top-honors acknowledgements.
The 2017 Honda Accord Makes the 10Best**
Every year, Car and Driver puts together its prestigious 10Best list. A week-long evaluation sees models gauged over various measures, including performance, engagement, and practicality. Winners for 2017 included models like the Tesla S 70, Porsche Boxster, and the 2017 Honda Accord.** What separates the Accord from the rest? It’s earned 10Best recognition 31 times over the award’s 35-year history.**
There’s clearly more than one reason why the Accord continues to rest among the most well-regarded vehicles in its segment, but it all boils down to an ability to push further across all categories. The 2017 model delivers three power options, a spacious cabin, top safety ratings, dynamic new styling, and a slew of upgraded features, including Honda Sensing driver-assistance technologies and Apple CarPlay®/Android Auto™.
The 2017 Honda Civic Takes the KBB Best Buy Award*
The KBB annual awards are some of the most sought-after in the industry. Shoppers head to KBB.com in droves to see where each new model outclasses rivals or falls flat. They consider the best models across 12 of the industry’s most popular vehicle categories to deliver a comprehensive decision, then go back to the drawing board to select an Overall Best Buy Winner. For 2017, they picked the Civic for the second year running.*
It’s an uncommon move to list the same vehicle in the top spot two years running, but one look at the Civic shows that it’s more than worthy. Interior dimensions and technologies feel more akin to a midsize, but you’ll still make up to a sensational 32 mpg in the city and 42 mpg on the highway.***
