Markham, Ontario: The all-new 2018 Honda Accord has earned the prestigious Canadian Car of the Year award presented by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC). The previous generation Accord was also the recipient of the award in 2013.
“We’re honoured and humbled to receive this recognition from a group of respected automotive journalists in Canada,” said Jean Marc Leclerc, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Honda Canada. “We’re both proud and thankful for all of our associates who supported the production and development of this vehicle and for our passionate customers who have supported the Accord for the past forty years.”
Testing for the 2018 AJAC Canadian Car of the Year Awards was conducted throughout the year in a variety of road conditions by some of Canada’s notable automotive journalists from across the country. AJAC members also had a chance to compare vehicles back-to-back at the annual “TestFest” event held October 25 and 26 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville, Ontario.
The all-new 2018 Accord is upscale and sophisticated, confident and distinctive, youthful and sporty. Completely redesigned from the ground-up, the all-new Accord features a lighter and more rigid body structure, an advanced new chassis design wrapped in a more sophisticated, sleek and athletic design with top class interior space and comfort.
