Honda Accord named vehicle of the Year

Henio Arcangeli Jr., senior vice president of automotive operations for Honda of America, poses with the North American Car of the Year award for the 2018 Honda Accord at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on Monday.

North American Car, Truck and Utility Vehicle of the Year ... have been announced.

The big winners of the annual Detroit International Auto Show are here.

The Volvo XC60 won North American Utility Vehicle of the Year - a category that was won by the Chrysler Pacifica last year.


The Honda Accord won vehicle of the Year on Monday at the Detroit Auto Show. Honda beat out the also-redesigned 2018 Toyota Camry and the all-new 2018 Kia Stinger in the awards. The Accord won out thanks to sleek new styling and a roomy, well-appointed interior.

Volvo took the SUV award over the Alfa Romeo Stelvio and Honda Odyssey. Finalists were the Ford Expedition and the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2. "The ride is exemplary, and when smartly equipped, it is a fine value", said Kirk Bell, NACTOY juror and freelance auto writer. "With its design more aligned with the Continental, the Navigator becomes an even more important image - and the profit-maker for Lincoln". The utility category is specifically for car-based crossovers and minivans.

The Lincoln Navigator was completely re-engineered for the first time in the model's history.
