2018 Honda Accord named Canada’s Car of the Year

  2018 Honda Accord named Canada’s Car of the Year Redesigned Accord beat out the Mazda3 and Volvo S90 for AJAC's top accoladeThe Accord, also named AJAC’s Best Large Car for 2018 and the North American Car of the Year, beat out the 2018 Volvo S90 and V90 siblings, and the 2018 Mazda3. That said, the S90 and V90 were named AJAC’s 2018 Best Large Premium Car and the Mazda3 is AJAC’s 2018 Best Small Car award winner.

While the CRV Crossover has become Honda 's best selling model, the japanese auto-maker is still slinging a lot of Accords, with nearly 161,000 finding homes in the first 6 months of 2017, which proves that there are people who still want sedans.

The brand that used to be loved by younger car enthusiasts has lost its cool in the last few years, but that could change again. Here’s why.

Ironically, the car you’d expect to be the least cool in the lineup turns out to be the most promising one, if Honda truly wishes to revive a brand that has suffered a lot in the past decade.

Worldwide, Honda represented 7.25% of all the cars sold in 2005, and then it fell to 4.68% in 2011. It’s been stuck in the low 6-percent area since, until last year, when a redesigned Civic and new SUVs were introduced.

JASPER, Alberta—The all-new 2018 Honda Accord is everything you can ask for in a sedan. It’s a blunt statement that’s backed up by its smooth, quiet, and comfortable ride, and its roomy and technologically-well-appointed interior.

Is white cool again for cars? I've seen quite a lot of new white cars recently VW Scirrocco(sp?), Seats, Hondas , Mercs, all sorts really.

This summer, the Clarity plug-in hybrid builds on that momentum. The sedan is among the best in its category, under the hood as well as behind the wheel. Enough to forget an exterior design closer to the former Insight hybrid than to the current five-door Civic…

A Volt from Japan

The Clarity starts at $40,000. That’s before the $13,000 rebate you get in Ontario for purchasing a plug-in hybrid, or the $8,000 you get in Quebec. In any case, it’s about $2,000 less than you’ll pay for a Chevrolet Volt, the benchmark in this segment, for similar performance.

On paper, Honda claims an all-electric range of 76 kilometres, for an average fuel-economy equivalent of 2.1 litres per 100 kilometers. Both figures are subject to variations based on how and where you drive.

The 2017 Honda Odyssey and the Toyota Sienna are showing that minivans can actually be quite cool . Minivans are the ideal for busy families but up until now they haven’t had looks that are cool and they have been taken over by the crossover utility vehicles.

Acura was cool , too. The Integra brought premium and economical performance chops to the brand. I want Honda /Acura to be great again , and this weekend I came up with a few ideas on how they can get back on the right track.

Based on a week-long test drive and national statistics, the real-life electric range of the Clarity is enough to get most of the workers living in the suburbs downtown, and back home, on one charge. Since 90% of plug-in hybrid owners charge at home overnight, it’s plenty enough.

Behind the wheel, the e-CVT transmission does not offer any kind of sensations you’d get from a more traditional, multi-gear manual or automatic gearbox (notwithstanding its push-button design, another trend being revived in the industry these days...), but the combined output of 212 hp will have you accelerating quickly enough in all situations.

By the end of the week, you will probably have used some of the gas in the tank. The average fuel consumption shown after our testing was of 2.6 L/100 km.

The end of the double touchscreen

For about $3,000 more, the Touring package adds leather to the seats, and a nice 8-inch touchscreen display to the centre console.

I have a 2001 Honda Civic. The A/C works pretty well - it comes on fast and blows cold. However, after 5 - 10 minutes it stops cooling and starts blowing warm air. If I turn the A/C off, after another 5 - 10 minutes I am able to turn it on again and I can feel the compressor engage and it cools again .

At last, Honda seems to have lost its despicable love for that double touchscreen setup it used for a few years in all its models. Now, the software interface is simple and efficient, integrates Apple’s CarPlay and Google’s Android Auto perfectly, and it’s all you really need.

If you need to change the climate settings, you can do so without looking at the controls.

The Clarity Touring also has a voice recognition feature, and a wireless connection allowing to control some features remotely, via a mobile application.

Nothing really stands out, here. No pop-up door handle like the ones you find on Tesla sedans. No futuristic cluster-less dashboard either. Simply great ergonomics, and performance at the top of its category.

A combination that has won Honda many fans 30 years ago. Ingredients its engineers and designers seem to have found again and put to good use.
