MARKHAM, ON (December 19, 2012) – The 2013 Honda Accord, Honda CR-V and Honda Fit were named Autos.ca’s 2013 Top Picks in the “Family Cars,” “CUV/SUV—Low “ and “City and Subcompacts” categories respectively. Vehicles at all price points are considered and evaluated under criteria such as styling, quality, functionality, fuel economy, driving pleasure, and value for money.
“We’re thrilled to have three of Autos.ca’s top picks,” said Dave Jamieson, assistant vice president, Honda Canada. “Rising above the competitors in such strong segments is an honour and truly demonstrates the quality and value that Honda prides itself on providing our customers.”
The Autos.ca 2013 Top Picks list includes vehicles in 10 categories: City and Subcompacts; Compacts; Family Cars; Sports Cars (Low); Sports Cars (High), Luxury Cars (Low); Luxury Car (High); CUV/SUV (Low); CUV/SUV (High) and a sole, unanimous winner in the Truck category.
“This list is our cream of the crop, when it comes to 2013 models,” said Autos.ca Senior Editor, Jonathan Yarkony, “the cars we feel every consumer needs to consider in their purchase decisions in each segment.”
About the Honda Accord – According to Autos.ca
“For years manufacturers have been trying their hardest to equal the Accord’s combination of comfort, refinement and efficiency while still providing a sporty drive. Well, a new Accord is here for 2013 and it is back to the drawing boards once again for the competition. The new Accord continues to be one of our favourite mid-size sedans and the 6-speed manual V6 coupe is a blast to drive.”
About the Honda CR-V – According to Autos.ca
“The CR-V has defined the compact crossover segment for the past 15 years so it should come as no surprise that Honda did not mess with the formula too much for the CR-V’s 2012 redesign. While others are experimenting with turbocharged engine options and gee-whiz technology, Honda continues to offer an affordable, practical, and efficient package that hits the sweet spot in the compact crossover segment.”
About the Honda Fit – According to Autos.ca
“The Honda Fit was the car that proved to Canadians that subcompact vehicles can be fun. And while other fun subcompact vehicles have since come to market, none have been able to match the Honda Fit’s ability to transform into an incredibly practical vehicle thanks to the trademark Magic Seats. Not bad for a vehicle that hasn’t changed all that much since its 2006 North American introduction.”
