The Accord was up against the 2018 Volvo S90 and V90 and the 2018 Mazda3 for Car of the Year, which is judged by the Automotive Journalists Association of Canada. The S90, V90 and Mazda3 are solid competition for the Accord, but ultimately lost out to the Japanese four-door. The new Accord also took the 2018 North American Car of the Year award at the Detroit auto show in early January.
The Pacifica, meanwhile, beat out the 2018 Mazda CX-5 and CX-9 to become Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year. While not all-new, the Pacifica was updated for the 2018 model year and has previously proved to be the best vehicle in its segment. The winner of the North American Utility Vehicle of the Year was the new Volvo XC60, which wasn’t nominated by AJAC.
