Lucky 7: 2022 Hondas Named Editors’ Choice

Car And Driver Editors Choice

No less than seven new 2022 Hondas were chosen by Car and Driver editors for their annual Editors’ Choice Awards. It comes as no surprise to us here at Dublin Honda as we know that new Hondas are reliable, safe, affordable and, now more than ever, feature advanced technology, enhanced capability and more luxury features. The new 2022 Honda Accord, Civic, Civic Si, CR-V, Passport, Ridgeline and Odyssey took home seven top spots, with the new Honda Ridgeline named the only Editors’ Choice Mid-Size Pickup Truck. 

How Are They Chosen?

Car and Driver, a leading automotive publication, is known for putting every single new car, truck, minivan and SUV through extensive tests for performance, capability, gas mileage, comfort, safety and more. For their annual Editors’ Choice awards, Car and Driver analyzes all of their test data and comprehensive on-road testing results of over 400 vehicles to determine the top new cars of the year. Vehicles named to the Car and Driver 10Best list automatically get included in the Editors’ Choice awards. The rest are determined to be worth your consideration  – and money – and are all but guaranteed to satisfy your driving needs.

In 2022, Honda took home seven Car and Driver Editors’ Choice awards:
