KBB says Honda Civic 2006ís best redesigned vehicle

The Honda Civic is the best redesigned vehicle for 2006, according to Kelley Blue Book, the trusted resource for automotive information. According to kbb.com editors, the all-new Civic is the most-improved vehicle on the U.S. market, making significant strides in exterior design, interior accommodations and mechanical excellence.

Despite the fact the Civic was one of the least expensive vehicles on the semi-finalist list, it still bested several luxury vehicles including the Lexus GS 300, BMW 3 Series, Infiniti M45 and Mercedes-Benz ML-Class.

Says Jack R. Nerad, editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book and kbb.com: "The bold new exterior design of the 2006 Honda Civic is much more attractive and expressive than the previous model, and consumers have responded to it right away. When you add a flashy-but-functional two-level instrument panel and an impressive boost in horsepower, you've got quite a winning combination."


Since 2003, Kelley Blue Book has been naming the "Best Redesigned Vehicle" for each model year. This time however, the editors of kbb.com decided to add the voice of the vehicle shopper to the award process. The kbb.com editors chose a list of 10 vehicles that were significantly redesigned for the 2006 model year and carry the model name of a previously available vehicle. Among the selection criteria were market-significant vehicles that maintained existing brand image, function and purpose, but made substantial advancements in the 2006 model-year redesign to improve appearance, comfort, technology and convenience.

The Civic garnered twenty percent of the votes. Other vehicles which made the cut are:

* Lexus GS 300, 18 percent
* BMW 3 series, 13 percent
* Mitsubishi Eclipse, 11 percent
* Hyundai Sonata, 9 percent
* Volkswagon Passat, 7 percent
* Infiniti M45, 7 percent
* Mazda MX-5 Miata, 7 percent
* Mercedes ML class, 5 percent
* Kia Rio, 2 percent
