January 16th, 2016 No comments


Your humble editors put their reputations on the line and boldly predicted either the Mazda MX-5 or Chevrolet Malibu would win car of the year honors, which, of course, is how the Honda Civic actually wound up with the award.

The interior finally moves past the crazy-for-crazy-sake tiered dash design of the last couple Civic generations and we’re all the better for it. Refinement continues to be the Civic’s game and it was enough to wow the judges and claim 2016 North American Car of the Year. Congrats Honda!
