Honda takes Hat Trick at Honest John Awards

Honda has taken three of the top awards in this year’s Honest John Awards, with the Jazz, HR-V, and the Swindon-built Civic winning the gongs for small hatchback, small crossover and small family car of the year respectively.

Dan Harrison, Managing Editor at, commented: “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.

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.”

Held in London on May 3rd, the awards come from the best experts of all: the website users. The awards are not decided by judges or a panel, instead recognising and rewarding the cars and vans that the users search for most on the site. Put simply, the reviews which create the most interest among users are the winners.
