2016 NACTOY winners

A jury of 53 automotive journalists from Canada and the United States has decided the 2016 North American Car of the Year and Truck / Utility of the Year winners.

The Honda Civic compact took first place in the car category. Chevrolet's Malibu was just 22 points behind, while a more distant third spot for the Mazda MX-5 Miata perhaps demonstrates that many 'head over heart' votes were cast.

Third: Mazda MX-5 Miata – 146 points

Turning to the truck and utility award, Honda failed to achieve double honours because the Volvo XC90 secured an emphatic victory. In fact, there was hardly anything between Honda's Pilot and Nissan's Titan XD in the battle for the runner-up position.
