Earlier today in Detroit the 2016 Honda Civic was awarded the North American Car of the Year award. Can you say that surprises you?

This win comes a decade after the 2006 Civic was awarded NACOTY along with the then new Ridgeline.

"The all-new Civic was developed and is built in North America, making this North American Car of the Year win even sweeter," said Jeff Conrad, Honda Division senior vice president and general manager. "Civic is a cornerstone of the Honda lineup, and we're delighted that the automotive press has recognized the new levels of styling, performance, advanced technology, safety and value that characterize the new Civic."

53 journalists cast their votes based on factors including innovation, design, safety performance, handling, driver satisfaction and value.

The Civic beat out Chevy's new Malibu and the latest and greatest MX-5 from Mazda.

Honda has had a couple of HIGH profile and lavish press junkets this year for both Civic and HR-V. Makes total sense the journalists returned the favor ;)

Not surprised Honda won with the more than warm reception the 10th Gen civic has been getting since it's release.

Getting the Civic out there is definitely something that helped out the Civic win this. Companies should probably promote their vehicle in order to have a better chance of winning. it's like the Oscars.

I wonder if this will help our cars retain their value well? I know generally Honda's do, but lately the Civics have not.

Civics are quite numerous. Because there are so many, they are less rare and the price drops. Vehicles that don't sell in quite as high of quantities retain value a bit better because they are a harder to find.

I assume people who buy a 10th Gen civic aren't looking to resell it later on for a good price. Seems more like a car you keep until you run it into the ground.

Yeah but people who typically buy these are budget and value minded more than others and will want to get the most out of a vehicle they own, when buying it, during ownership and come time to sell.

I am expecting that there will be a pretty significant technology revolution in about 5 years. So I am keeping that in mind in terms of reselling and and how long I'll want to own the vehicle.

I find the Aztek fascinating. It was a hated vehicle, but has now come back as something valuable and desired because it's so ugly and also because of Breaking Bad. Just funny where the value ended up coming from.
