2024 Honda Accord Sport L

Honda stands as the most successful brand in the history of Car and Driver awards, amassing an impressive 92 trophies. The sleek, powerful, and electrified Honda Accord is honored for an unprecedented 38th time, maintaining an impressive streak of 26 consecutive years. The 11th-generation Honda Civic continues its recognition for the third consecutive year, while the 6th-generation Honda CR-V secures its place for the second consecutive year.

Demonstrating prowess in design and engineering, Honda has clinched three 2024 Car and Driver 10Best awards for the second consecutive year, surpassing all other brands. The Honda Civic and Accord have earned coveted spots on the 10Best Cars list, and the Honda CR-V has been named to the 10Best Trucks and SUVs list. Additionally, Car and Driver has honored the Acura Integra Type S with a spot on its 10Best Cars list, resulting in four prestigious awards for American Honda Motor Co., Inc.

With a remarkable total of 92 awards, Honda holds the record for the most Car and Driver accolades among all brands. Since the inception of the 10Best awards in 1983, at least one Honda vehicle has consistently secured a position on the annual list.
The Honda Accord, a symbol of success, not only holds the title of America’s best-selling car over the last five decades but also stands as the most awarded vehicle in Car and Driver 10Best history by a significant margin. With an astonishing 38 appearances on the prestigious list, including an impressive 26-year consecutive streak, the Accord’s legacy is unmatched. The Civic secures its 10th 10Best award, while the CR-V celebrates its fifth win.
These accolades highlight Honda’s ongoing commitment to delivering exceptional vehicles that resonate with both critics and consumers alike.

Taking home three prestigious Car and Driver 10Best awards for the second year in a row is an incredible honor for the entire Honda family. For Honda, these awards are not just recognition of Civic, Accord and CR-V, but motivation for every Honda associate to continue creating, building and selling products that create joy for our customers.

The hybrid variants of the Accord and CR-V play a pivotal role in Honda’s electrification strategy, constituting over 50% of the total sales for both models in 2024. These models feature an innovative more advanced Honda two-motor hybrid system, which ensures optimal efficiency without sacrificing dynamic performance or packaging, thereby delivering a driving experience that is both sportier and more comfortable.

About the Car and Driver 10Best List

In order to participate in the 10Best, a benchmark of excellence for over four decades, vehicles must meet specific criteria. Eligible vehicles include those that are entirely new, were 2023 10Best winners, were unavailable for the 2023 competition, or underwent significant updates. Additionally, all vehicles must adhere to a base-price cap of $110,000 and be available for sale no later than January 31, 2024. Following a rigorous evaluation process involving two weeks of testing over 80 new cars, trucks, and SUVs meeting these criteria, Car and Driver editors assign each vehicle a score ranging from zero to 100. These scores are then tallied and averaged to determine the prestigious 10Best of 2024.

Car and Driver simultaneously unveils two lists: 10Best Cars and 10Best Trucks and SUVs. For a comprehensive overview of the 2024 Car and Driver 10Best Cars awards, click here, and for the complete 2024 Car and Driver 10Best Trucks and SUVs awards, click here.
