Every year, the auto industry’s experts and critics pull out the red carpet to welcome the best cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans. Car and Driver, one of the most authoritative automotive magazines—do magazines still exist?—has released their list of the best 2018 vehicles, and Honda made waves with eight total wins. If you’re looking to buy or lease a new car in Miami, look no further than these new 2018 Honda models, all of which are available today at our South Florida Honda Dealers locations.
2018 Honda Civic
Often considered the most iconic Honda car of the bunch, the Civic comes in a variety of shapes and sizes (the sedan, coupe, hatchback, Si, and Type R), all of which find their way onto Car and Driver’s 2018 Editors’ Choice list.
The 2018 Honda Civic sedan is a versatile and comfy transporter that inspires joy with each push of the accelerator or shift into fourth gear. Returning is the exceptional six-speed manual transmission, which transforms even the dullest cul-de-sac into a raceway turn. The Civic’s wide stance and loose steering make great use of its turbo-four’s 174-horsepower output, while also returning an extraordinary 42 mpg on the highway.

2018 Honda CR-V
The compact SUV category is teeming with competition, from the Toyota RAV4 to Mazda CX-5. Sitting near the top is the 2018 CR-V, which Car and Driver claims is the “MVP” of the segment.
Is it the base 184-horsepower four-cylinder under the hood that makes the CR-V so beloved? What about the addition of adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, and a duo of rear USB ports? Or could it be the class-leading cargo volume (75.8 cubic feet) and superior passenger space? Then there’s the attractive dashboard and cabin trimmings to consider….
In reality, the CR-V is among the best SUVs in the country because few rivals can compete with all the astonishing features it comes with.
2018 Honda Odyssey
Families have trusted the legendary Honda Odyssey for years—decades even—and the 2018 Odyssey continues to serve as the best van on the market. Earning Car and Driver’s prestigious five-star rating, this eight-passenger minivan is as good as ever.
In the very back is the innovative HondaVAC system. Suck up those loose ponytail holders and Miami Beach sand with ease, then dump the trash at the next rest stop. Slide the Magic Slide seats around to simplify the task of fastening kids’ seat belts or installing child safety seats. Track what’s going on in the rear seats with the built-in PA system (CabinWatch), and give morning announcements via the CabinTalk system, Honda’s new in-car intercom—all while keeping your eyes on the road.
2018 Honda Accord
A perennial 10Best winner, the Honda Accord unsurprisingly finds its way onto the Editors’ Choice list yet again.
Upon climbing into the 2018 Accord’s driver seat, your fingertips and heel will be drawn to the steering wheel and accelerator. That turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder is just too enticing! And its incredible engine is only made better by the cabin’s comfortable seats, ample passenger volume, and an array of modern technology, including lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and a large touchscreen with Honda’s acclaimed infotainment system.
The only way to truly enjoy everything the 2018 Accord offers is to take it for a spin. So, get to it: Head to your nearby Honda dealers to discover what makes the new Accord the best car of the year.
2018 Honda Ridgeline
As the only midsize pickup truck to earn Car and Driver’s praise, the 2018 Honda Ridgeline is set up perfectly to be an annual inclusion on their Editors’ Choice list.
Part truck and part car, the Ridgeline offers a whole lot more than meets the eye. Over 50 cubic feet of storage space exists under the seat (just flip it up), which is enough room to hold a bike or your worksite equipment. Tri-zone climate control, a bright 8-inch color display, and a heated steering wheel are up front.
In the bed, you’ll find a bevy of reasons why the 2018 Ridgeline is the best truck in its class. Its lockable in-bed trunk is ideal for home renovations and construction jobs, but can also play the part of a tailgate cooler with little effort—just load it up with ice and pull the drain plug when it’s time to head home. The bed’s AC outlet is embedded in the sidewall and can power anything from a television to your table saw. Blast the tunes from the in-bed audio system to make your next Miami Beach party a par-tay (or whatever kids call it these days).
Owning a truck has never been cooler or more convenient thanks to the 2018 Ridgeline, which is available for sale and lease today at our Honda dealerships near Fort Lauderdale.
2018 Honda Fit
With an interior so versatile it borders on impossible, the 2018 Honda Fit is certifiably worthy of its recent accolades.
As a relative newcomer to the “best of” category, the Fit would appear to lack the size to muster even a mention on the Editors’ Choice list, but its looks are deceiving. Camouflaged in the second-row Magic Seat is magic—the type that even Hogwarts’ alum would be jealous of. Configured in just the right array, the Magic Seat allows you to transport the bulkiest of items with ease. Need room for a garage freezer? Fold the seats all the way down and plop that sucker in. Have to transport a few tall plants? Lift the seat bottoms up to increase the cabin’s vertical storage space. Or mix and match configurations.
The award-winning genes run rampant in all Honda models. If you’re searching for a new car in Miami, FL, look no further than a new Honda. Visit your South Florida Honda Dealers to discuss your lease options and get an unbeatable deal on any new 2018 Honda today!
