Civic is a 3-Time Winner - More Than Any Other Car

January 11, 2022 | Bennington, VT

Coggins Honda of Bennington is proud to share the news surrounding the New 2022 Honda Civic winning the top honors of being named the North American Car of the Year for the unprecendented 3rd time. Previous generation Honda Civics have earned the award in 2006 and 2016. No other car has won NA Car of the Year more times than Civic! The ground-breaking 11th-generation Civic was recognized for its sporty design, its class-leading safety features, outstanding driving dynamics and all-around fun-to-drive feel. It's no wonder that Civic is America's most popular compact car.

"The Honda Civic has long set the standard by which other compact cars are measured and this all-new Civic raised that bar in every conceivable way. We're especially proud for the Civic development team in Japan and our production associates at our plants in Greensburg, Indiana and Alliston, Ontario where the 2022 Civic Sedan, Hatchback and Si are built."

- Michael Kistemaker Assistant Vice-President of Honda National Sales

Honda engineers have outdone themselves with this generation's Civic Sedan, Hatchback and Si models by completely redesigning them from the ground up, employing a more rigid body structure, an advanced design chassis and more sophisticated and sporty body design with plush interior cabin comforts and features. Standard dual-low-beam LED headlights and taillights, fastback-inspired roofline, elongated hood and clean body lines make a strong curbside statement. The 8-way power driver's seat allows for complete comfort control and the 60/40 split rear seatback let's you expand your rear trunk space for larger cargo.
