The all-new, Canadian made 2022 Honda Civic has been universally praised for its bold styling, cutting edge technology and incredible value. Most recently, the 2022 Honda Civic has been named Best Small Car of Canada by the Automotive Journalists Association of Canada.
The 2022 Honda Civic beat out the other two finalists, the Nissan Sentra and Mazda 3 in the small car category.
“We continue to be humbled and excited at the attention and accolades the 2022 Honda Civic is receiving and we want to thank all of our associates at Honda of Canada Mfg. for helping to make this award a reality,”
said Steve Hui, Assistant Vice President of Honda Canada.
“This is a vehicle that has deep roots in Canada, as it is built locally and has been incredibly popular since its inception. We could not be prouder of this latest Civic achievement.”
How are the Winning Vehicles Picked?
The verdict to how the top Canadian vehicles are chosen follow AJAC guidelines.
To supplement their year-round testing and assessment of eligible Canadian Car of the Year vehicles, every October the top automotive journalists from across Canada gather for additional evaluations of current models available to the Canadian market.
Key to the Canadian Car of the Year awards program is an annual event known in the Canadian automotive industry as “TestFest”.
The AJAC’s purpose? To select the best new vehicles in various categories as well as an overall Canadian Car of the Year and Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year. The evaluation is based on “real-world” testing so that the results have relevance for consumers.
In other words, the rigorous testing program includes driving on public roads – exactly where consumers drive – so that the tests and vote results are relevant to potential car and truck buyers. At our Calgary Honda dealership, this allows us to provide top-tested results when informing our customers about why they should purchase the 2022 Honda Civic.
Team members use a detailed rating form, comprising various evaluation parameters that include acceleration, braking, vehicle dynamics, maneuverability, even off-road capability, where applicable. Each parameter is rated using a prescribed 0 – 10 rating scale.
Every detail, from safety features to cargo capacity, is thoroughly scrutinized, discussed, and individually rated by secret ballot.
Those ballots are then tabulated by the international accounting firm KPMG. The results are kept confidential — even from AJAC — until the awards press conferences wherein the category and overall winners are announced. This ensures the best ratings for the public are produced.
