2016 Honda Civic Named North American Car of the Year

The 2016 Honda Civic is the North American car of the year

At car shows all around the world, automakers and vehicles are given awards. But, here in the United States, one of the most prestigious awards is the North American Car of the Year award given out at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. At this year’s show, the all-new 2016 Honda Civic earned this coveted honor.

“The all-new Civic was developed and is built in North America, making this North American Car of the Year win even sweeter,” said Jeff Conrad, Honda Division senior vice president and general manager, in a statement. “Civic is a cornerstone of the Honda lineup, and we’re delighted that the automotive press has recognized the new levels of styling, performance, advanced technology, safety and value that characterize the new Civic.”

This is the second time the Civic has won this award. The last time was in 2006 when it shared the stage with the 2006 Honda Ridgeline, which won the North American Truck of the Year award that year.

The all-new Civic was redesigned from the ground up with a new vehicle architecture that makes it sporty, sophisticated, more spacious, and more high-tech. And, with new engine options and safety tech, buyers have more choices than ever before.

Locally Made Honda Pilot Leads to a Stellar 2015

Sunny King Honda had a great year thanks in part to the locally made Honda Pilot, which was completely redesigned and introduced as a 2016 model.

As discussed in a story on The Anniston Star this week, the 2016 Honda Pilot not only helped our dealership have a great year, but it helped Honda’s sales too. In 2015, Honda sold a record 1.59 million vehicles, and the Pilot saw a 25.1% increase in sales over 2014.

“I have never seen a car with this much demand. 2015 was a very good year for us.” our General Sales Manager Dan Jordan told The Anniston Star.

The 2016 Honda Pilot is manufactured right here in Alabama, at the plant located in Talladega County. With five trim levels and loads of standard features, it’s obvious why the Pilot is such a big hit. New safety features and tons of cargo space make the all-new Honda Pilot the perfect family vehicle.
