  • Civic wins North American Car of the Year for 3rd time—previously taking top honors in 2006 & 2016
  • All-new 11th-generation Civic honored for simple and sporty design, class-leading safety performance, excellent driving dynamics and fun-to-drive personality
  • Civic is America’s most popular vehicle with young and first-time buyers

The all-new 2022 Honda Civic, the 11th generation of America’s most popular compact car, has earned the prestigious 2022 North American Car of the Year award. Civic was honoured by the North American jury of automotive journalists for the third time, with the 10th-generation Civic winning in 2016 and 8th generation taking the top honor in 2006.

This marks the fourth time in the past six years that a Honda model has received a North American Car or Truck of the Year award, following the Honda Civic (2016), Honda Ridgeline (2017) and Honda Accord (2018).

“The Honda Civic has long set the standard by which other compact cars are measured and this all-new Civic raised that bar in every conceivable way,” said Michael Kistemaker, assistant vice president of Honda national sales, American Honda Motor Co., Inc.

The North American Car, Utility and Truck of the Year awards honour excellence in innovation, design, safety features, performance, technology, driver satisfaction and value. Initiated in 1994, they are judged by 50 professional automotive journalists from the United States and Canada who work for independent magazines, television, radio, newspapers and industry websites.      

Redesigned from the ground-up, the all-new Honda Civic features a more rigid body structure, an advanced and enhanced chassis wrapped in a more sophisticated, sleek and sporty design with top class interior space and comfort. The drivetrain options include a high-torque VTEC® Turbo engine and a host of new standard safety, driver-assistive and connected-car technologies.
