2016 North American Car & Truck Of The Year: And The Winners Are…

The winners for the 2016 North American Car and Truck of the year awards were announced today during the Detroit Auto Show.

The 2016 North American Car of the Year is the new Honda Civic, as it managed to surpass the other two finalists, the Mazda MX-5 and the Chevrolet Malibu, and it had the firm’s officials talk about a ‘sweet’ win.

The all-new Civic was developed and is built in North America, making this North American Car of the Year win even sweeter“, said the Honda Division Senior VP and General Manager, Jeff Conrad.

Honda’s win comes exactly ten years after the Civic received the 2006 North American Car of the Year award and it was the same year when it shared the stage with the Ridgeline, which was the winner of the 2006 North American Truck of the Year.

However, the 2016 North American Truck of the Year went to the Volvo XC90. The Swedish SUV turned out to be more popular than the other two finalists, the Honda Pilot and the Nissan Titan XD, as it attracted the majority of the votes from the jury’s American and Canadian journalists.

We are absolutely thrilled that the XC90 has won this prestigious and most respected award and there is a lot more to come. By 2019 Volvo will have a totally renewed product portfolio. By then the all-new XC90 will be the oldest car in the showroom“, stated Volvo Car USA’s CEO and President, Lex Kerssemakers.

The 2015 winners were the Volkswagen Golf and the Ford F-150.
