Honda Civic Is A Finalist For The 2022 North American Car Of The Year


The Honda Civic may not have made it to Japan’s Top 10 finalists for its Car of the Year, but the 11th generation compact sedan did just that at the 2022 2022 North American Car, Truck and Utility Vehicle of the Year (NACTOY) awards.

The Civic is among the three finalists fighting for the North American Car of the Year honors against the Volkswagen Golf Mk VIII and the Lucid Air.

It joins the Ford Maverick, Hyundai Santa Cruz, and Rivian R1T fighting in the North American Truck of the Year; and the Ford Bronco, Genesis GV70, and Hyundai Ioniq 5 in the North American Utility Vehicle of the Year.

NACTOY’s awards are determined through a series of three votes by a group of 50 automotive journalists from an array of magazines, newspapers, websites, and television, and radio stations in the U.S. and Canada. Founded in 1994, the NACTOY awards are the longest-running new vehicle awards not associated with a single outlet.

The jurors, who have tested and evaluated eligible new or substantially changed vehicles that launched this year, vote for their choices based on elements including automotive innovation, design, safety, performance, technology, driver satisfaction, and value.

The jury votes were tallied and audited by Deloitte. The selection of nine finalists is the second-to-last step in the year-long evaluation process for the three awards before the final jury vote and the announcement of the winners in January.

The North American Car of the Year will be announced in January. Meanwhile, the Civic will officially launch in the Philippines on September 23.
