Everyone likes to win, and Honda is no exception. Honors from Car and Driver are the latest Honda awards, and this coveted recognition is especially satisfying. After extensive testing and evaluations, Car and Driver editors selected the 2017 CR-V and the 2017 Ridgeline as honorees of 10Best Truck and SUV Awards*.

10Best Truck and SUV Awards

Earning a place on this prestigious list is no easy task. The editors spend a week performing thorough tests on specific, unique characteristics for the different vehicle segments and see how all the entrants stack up against the competition. Areas of evaluation included ride and handling, comfort, safety, technology, fuel efficiency, and practicality. Editors vote based on three criteria: overall value for the price, how engaged they felt behind the wheel, and how well the vehicles accomplished tasks.


The 2017 Ridgeline features a total redesign, and it shows in the bursts of creative innovations throughout the truck. The new Ridgeline has an exclusive unit body construction style, and the Car and Driver editors were won over by its best-in-class ride and handling as well as its superior fuel efficiency. The available advanced torque vectoring All-Wheel Drive system is a huge plus, and the Ridgeline also boasts top-of-the-line noise, vibration, and harshness ratings. This unique truck has a style all its own with the chops to back it up.


One of America’s most popular and best-selling SUVs also benefited from a brand-new redesign. The 2017 CR-V is now longer, wider, and taller than it used to be, making the interior roomier. The editors love its tremendous value proposition and the newly available turbo engine that isn’t just powerful but offers the best fuel efficiency in its class. They were also impressed by its spacious interior with premium level touches. The CR-V is an all-around incredible value.
