Honda Accord wins auto of the Year

Honda Accord, Lincoln Navigator, Volvo XC60 named vehicles of the year at Detroit auto show

It was announced Monday morning that the Honda Accord was voted auto of the Year, the Volvo XC60 Utility of the Year, and the Lincoln Navigator Truck of the Year.

The Detroit Auto Show got rolling on January 14, with worldwide trade and tax cuts dominating the conversation, even as carmakers raced to meet Americans' seemingly insatiable appetite for trucks and SUVs.

This year's press preview for the North American International Auto Show ends Tuesday.

The Accord took home the prize for top auto, while the XC60 and Navigator were recognized as utility vehicle and truck of the year respectively. Arcangeli calls the Accord "new from the ground up", with more coupe-like styling and its first-ever turbocharged engines.

This marks the third year in a row that Honda has received an award from the North American jury of automotive journalists.

Finalists this year include Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, and Kia Stinger for NACOY; Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator for NATOY; and Alfa Romeo Stelvio, Honda Odyssey, and the Volvo XC60 for North American Utility of the Year. "Not only is this 10th-generation Accord far sleeker and more decisively styled than its predecessor, it's somehow roomier inside, too". "The entire Lincoln team is very proud of the work that was done to create a truly differentiated, luxury Lincoln experience in our all-new Navigator".

Only vehicles that are all new or substantially changed for the 2018 model year were eligible to win.
