The All-New 2016 Honda Civic Awarded "2016 North American Car of the Year!"

January 14th, 2016 by

The all-new 2016 Honda Civic is stealing hearts all over the world, and it comes as no surprise to us here at Holmes Honda that it was named the “North American Car of the Year!” This is the second time the Honda Civic has been awarded NACOTY, with the last time being in 2006, when it stood beside the NATOTY- the 2006 Honda Ridgeline.

Amazingly enough, a total of 11 Honda models have been named finalists for North American Car of the Year since their inception in 1994, which is the most of ANY brand outside of the Detroit Big 3 automakers.
Even better? The all-new Honda Civic was built and developed in North America! Jeff Conrad, Honda Division Senior Vice President and General Manager said, “The Civic is a cornerstone of the Honda lineup, and we’re delighted that the automotive press has recognized the new levels of styling, performance, advanced technology, safety and value that characterizes the new Civic.”
This prestigious award is given by a group of 53 international automotive journalists, making it a huge and unique honor! Some factors that go into choosing the North American Car of the Year include safety performance, innovation, design, handling, value and driver satisfaction.
If you have yet to see the all-new 2016 Honda Civic, you can expect a new vehicle architecture as well as sporty and sophisticated interior and exterior design. It also comes with two advanced new engines, a more high-quality and spacious cabin, and an abundance of new available features and technologies. Some of these technologies include Android Auto and Apple Car Play, Honda Sensing safety and driver-assistive technologies, as well as the Civic’s first application of the Honda turbo engine technology.
We are also proud to announce that our sister store, Holmes Volvo, is a proud seller of the 2016 North American Truck of the Year- the 2016 Volvo XC90!
