Looking for the best cars to buy means looking at the Car and Driver 10 Best list. From best midsize car to best hybrid cars, Car and Driver collects together the cream of the crop to make up a selection that’s been influencing drivers for over three decades.
They look at everything from driving dynamics to starting price to make the final call, and this year saw five Honda models make the grade.
- 2019 Honda Accord
- 2019 Honda Accord Hybrid
- 2019 Honda Civic Hatchback Sport
- 2019 Honda Civic Si
- 2019 Honda Civic Type R
This marks a record 33rd
10 Best spot for the Honda Accord
, and Car and Driver
remarks that that “achievement is no accident”. They heaped praise on its “fastidious fine-tuning”, spacious dimensions, and ability to balance exceptional efficiency scores with a soul-stirring drive.
Honda Accord Hybrid
Joining the standard Honda Accord among Car and Driver’s 10 Best, the Accord Hybrid delivers up to 48 mpg in the city and 48 mpg* on the highway, all while making 60 mph in just 5.5 seconds thanks to a combination of electric motors and turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder.
Honda Civic Hatchback Sport
As noted by Car and Driver
: “These three Civics offer a wide latitude of driving virtue and price points”. The Civic Sport Hatchback
is big on practicality thanks to a 46.2 cubic foot cargo capacity, but it’s still immensely fun to drive courtesy of a 180 hp output.
Honda Civic Si
Available as a coupe
or a sedan
, the Civic Si’s 205 hp turbocharged engine takes you from zero to 60 mph in just 6.3 seconds. Car and Driver
noted that it “strikes an ideal middle ground between the Civic’s pragmatic roots and its performance pinnacle.”
Honda Civic Type R
The Honda Civic Type R
is where you come for that performance pinnacle. Drawing on 306 hp, it possesses the most powerful engine ever sold by Honda in America.
