The new Honda Civic - coming to SA this year

Wilmer Muller

Honda's new Civic and its Ridgeline pickup were respectively named as car and truck of the year at the Detroit Motor Show.

It's the first time in the award's 12-year history that both winners were from the same car manufacturer.

The awards are presented by a panel of 49 independent motoring journalists from various American and Canadian publications.

The other two finalists for car of the year were the Ford Fusion and the Pontiac Solstice, while the other finalists for truck of the year were the Ford Explorer and Nissan Xterra SUVs.

Last year's car of the year was the Chrysler 300C.
