Aside from the Honda Accord and the Honda HR-V, the flagship Honda Pilot was also nominated as the Best Family SUV.
10th Generation Honda Accord
Upscale and sophisticated – the 10th generation Accord design strongly advances the emotional and aspirational appeal of Accord. The award-winning car takes an entirely new approach to performance with its two-new direct-injected VTEC® Turbo 4-cylinder engines with dual VTC – a 1.5-litre 16-valve inline-4 and a 2.0-litre 16-valve DOHC inline-4. The 1.5-litre turbo is mated to a Honda continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) with G-Shift Control. The new 2.0-litre turbo is mated to a smooth, responsive Honda-designed 10-speed automatic, the first of its kind for a front-wheel-drive car.
This generation of Accord has received numerous safety improvements and driver assistive features, beginning with its next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, and the application of Honda Sensing®, as standard equipment on EX Turbo and 2.0T Sport trims. The car features a larger, more premium and tech-savvy interior that compliments its elegant new body design and more refined and athletic driving character.
All-New Honda HR-V
The all-new Honda HR-V boasts a youthful vibe with unique styling touches. It features a responsive 140hp at 6,500 RPM and a torque of 172 N-m at 4300 RPM on a 1.8L i-VTEC petrol engine, which maximises economy and efficiency, achieving 16.9 km/l, on a tank of fuel. The HR-V is front-wheel drive, driven by a 7-speed fully-automatic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission).
The car is equipped with a 6.8-inch Display Audio with Touchscreen (LX and EX Grades) with USB and HDMI ports, a Multifunction steering wheel, and automatic climate control.
Designed to adapt to your lifestyle, the HR-V gives you a clever, comfortable and spacious interior. A centrally-mounted fuel tank provides the HR-V with a huge boot and the novel 2nd – Row Magic Seats are further evidence of smart thinking. The 2nd – Row Magic Seats are designed to configure in lots of useful ways to increase its carrying capacity.
