The all-new 2016 Honda Civic and all-new 2016 Honda Pilot have been named “Best Compact Sedan” and “Best SUV,” respectively, in the latest Hispanic Motor Press Awards.
The Honda Civic was noted for its great styling, first turbocharged engine, numerous safety technologies as part of the Honda Sensing suite, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
“The 2016 Civic is a bit longer, with a roomier interior and a high level of connectivity, with a smooth power plant. These enhancements make this new platform a real winner for the Hispanic consumer,” said Ricardo Rodriguez-Long, Jury Director, Hispanic Motor Press.
The Honda Pilot stood out as one of the best vehicles for families with seating for up to eight occupants, an available nine-speed automatic transmission, and a host of assistive driver technologies to help keep everyone safe.
“The new Pilot has grown into a practical and efficient family vehicle. With the AWD option, three-row seating, safety features and a premium feel, it stood out among the other options tested by the jurors. It’s a very good all-around package for the larger Hispanic family,” said Rodriguez.
