Honda has taken three of the top awards in this year’s Honest John Awards, with the Jazz, Civic and HR-V winning the gongs for small hatchback, small family car and small crossover of the year respectively.
Dan Harrison, managing editor at honestjohn.co.uk, commented: “the Honda Jazz is a smash hit with the readers of HonestJohn.co.uk and a worthy winner of the Small Hatchback of the Year award. Easy to drive, comfortable and practical, the Jazz is everything a small car should be, and our readers agree when we say it’s simply one of the best small hatchbacks you can buy.
“The Honda Civic is a great family car. Not only is it eye-catching, but it manages to blend dynamic handling with family-friendly comfort and practicality. Over the past 12 months the Civic’s popularity has soared with the Honda winning praise it for value and refinement, which makes it a more than deserving winner of our Small Family Car of the Year award.
Harrison concluded: “the Honda HR-V is top of the class again, taking the Small Crossover of the Year award for the second successive year. Praised for its comfortable interior and wonderful ride quality, the HR-V is a true chart topper with no other small crossover coming close to matching its popularity with the audience of HonestJohn.co.uk.”
Phil Webb, head of cars at Honda UK, added: “this is the third year in a row that Honda has picked up trophies at the Honest John awards and we are delighted that the Jazz, Civic and HR-V have triumphed this year; especially in an awards ceremony where it is simply down to the mass appeal of the cars and the number of people searching for them on the Honest John website.”
