We Deliver the 2016 Car of the Year Award

After announcing the Honda Civic as the winner of the 2016 Car of the Year award there was just one thing left to do – hand over the hardware.

And that’s just what AutoGuide Editorial Director Colum Wood did last night in Detroit.

At Honda’s annual Detroit holiday party, Wood delivered the award to Honda Motor America President and CEO Takuji Yamada and company Senior Vice President and General Manager Jeff Conrad.

“Congratulations to the team at Honda,” said Group Editorial Director Colum Wood. “The new Civic is easily the best all-around package I’ve driven, not just this year, but in a very long time. It’s premium, yet sporty, and I just love that new turbocharged engine. A car that’s this good, with Honda’s reputation for quality, reliability and durability, just doesn’t come along every day.”
