After what it reported as an “exhaustive testing process,” has for the first time published its very first editors’ choice awards, which celebrate the top cars, SUVs, and trucks of 2019.

Having scrutinized over 300 vehicles on the road and the track and in the process driving more than half a million miles, Edmunds’ editors picked seven award winners based on how they rank in more than 30 criteria across five primary evaluation categories including comfort, interior, utility, technology, and driving/performance.

Among the seven winners, Honda was the only brand to be featured more than once. The 2019 Honda Accord was rated as the top sedan while the 2019 Honda CR-V was rated as the top SUV, which Edmunds noted as being the most popular and competitive sector of the automotive market.

“The Honda Accord personifies the term ‘best-in-class’ and hits all the right marks — not just for a midsize sedan,” said Alistair Weaver, Edmunds editor-in-chief. “Spacious, easy-to-drive, tech-savvy and surprisingly upscale compared to its rivals, the Accord gives you a whole lot of car for your money and is our favorite sedan of the year.”

Redesigned for 2018, the Accord has since amassed an impressively large number of awards and honors from just about all reputable publications. Meanwhile, the CR-V, which was redesigned for the 2017 model year, was noted for its superior practicality, punchiness, and compact-yet-spacious design. “The CR-V is simply the most well-rounded and thoughtfully designed SUV on the road today,” Weaver said.
