2018 Honda Accord and Odyssey Named ‘Best New Cars’ by Good Housekeeping

2018 Honda Accord

There is no doubt that Honda is one of the world’s top auto manufacturers, in terms of overall sales and also awards, which is why it should not come as all that much of a surprise to learn that the Japanese automaker recently added two more awards to its growing list of honors. In this case, the distinction belongs to the all-new 2018 Honda Odyssey and Honda Accord 1.5T, which recently earned the Good Housekeeping Institute Best New Car Award in their respective minivan and sedan categories. As part of this award, the two vehicles are featured in the February issue of Good Housekeeping magazine alongside all of the other 2018 winners.

To determine their Best New Car Award winners, the Good Housekeeping Institute partnered with automotive experts at Car and Driver magazine. The team assessed hundreds of new vehicles—focusing on important criteria such as reliability, safety, handling, comfort, performance, and value—in order to choose the best car in each category. After this rigorous testing, the 2018 Honda Accord 1.5T and 2018 Odyssey proved to be the consensus pick for the best new sedan and the best new minivan.

The All-New Fifth-Generation Honda Odyssey

Yearly minivan sales have gradually declined for a number of years, but the brand-new 2018 Honda Odyssey may soon change things. Despite it continually ranking among the best-selling minivans, the Odyssey has undergone a complete redesign for the 2018 model year in order to take advantage of advancements in automotive technology. As well, Honda engineers focused on redesigning the minivan to be an even better fit for the various needs of modern American families.

The result is a stylish minivan that excels in terms of performance, comfort, safety, and connectivity. Drivers with large families are sure to enjoy the spacious, comfortable interior, as well as the added confidence of knowing that the Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety technology is there to help protect you and your family wherever you are out on the road.

The style is obviously important when choosing a new vehicle, and in this sense, the all-new Odyssey is like no minivan you’ve seen before. With its graceful lines and dynamic styling cues, the Odyssey is guaranteed to turn heads. In this sense, Honda is proving that minivans can be sleek and stylish in addition to offering family-friendly safety, comfort and space.

The Tenth-Generation Honda Accord

Like the Odyssey, Honda also completely redesigned its popular Accord for the 2018 model year. Although the Accord is already one of the world’s most iconic mid-size sedans, the re-imagined 10th-generation model takes things even further by boasting even more aggressive styling, power, and performance.

The 2018 Accord 1.5T may have topped the engine chart, but drivers looking for an even more powerful and sporty ride should definitely check out the available 2.0-liter turbo engine. No matter which engine you choose, you’ll also be able to take advantage of the Accord’s spacious interior and a wide range of advanced safety and connectivity features.

Boasting an impressive 192-horsepower, the Accord 1.5T also provides drivers with ultra-responsive handling combined with outstanding reliability and overall performance. In this sense, it is no shock that the Accord beat out all other new sedans to earn this prestigious Best New Car Award.
