Honda Civic Earns Best Family Car Pick of 2016 from Parents Magazine and Edmunds.com in the US

The all-new 2016 Honda Civic has been named as one of the 10 Best Family Cars in North America by the parenting and car experts at Parents magazine and Edmunds.com.


It was joined by the Honda Pilot, an SUV primarily aimed at the North American market.  The two family-friendly Honda vehicles were selected out of hundreds of models for excelling in the key areas of safety, convenience features, performance, design and value. The Civic won the category for Best Small Sedan.

The Honda Civic, already the 2016 North American Car of the Year, is Honda’s best-selling car globally, playing a leading role in advancing fuel efficiency, small-car safety performance, design, technology and fun-to-drive performance for 10 generations.

Just launched in Australia, the 2016 Civic sets a bar in the small car class with the addition of the Honda Sensing™ suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies, which is available on VTi-LX.

“The new Civic is clearly changing customer perceptions in the small-car segment both overseas and here in Australia,” said Honda Australia Director, Mr. Stephen Collins.

“To be award such prestige acclaim by Parents magazine and Edmunds.com is a validation that the Civic is the right car at the right time for many of our customers.”

Honda Australia already holds 329 pre-orders for the new Civic.

In addition, the 2016 Civic has received the highest available collision safety ratings, an NCAP 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in North America and a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

In Australia, the new Civic sedan leads a three-pronged launch strategy for the model. After the sedan, the Civic hatch arrives in the first half of 2017, followed by the performance Type R hatch.
