Autoshow Season - North American Car and Truck of the year announced

NACTOY awards are handed out every year at the opening of media days at the NAIAS. Cars are nominated and voted upon by members of the motoring press.

This year is the 13th annual award and the first time that both winners have been from the same brand.

The Car of the Year award goes to the new Honda Civic family of sedans and coupes. From what I've been hearing about these cars, this was a pretty easy bet.

Now as far as Truck of the Year, we have proof that automotive journalists have slightly different criteria for what makes a good truck. Essentially saying that the best truck is the one that appeals best to car buyers - they named the Honda Ridgeline.
