Honda Division swept the 2006 North American Car and Truck of the Year awards, with honors going to the redesigned Civic and new Ridgeline pickup.
The Civic beat the Ford Fusion and Pontiac Solstice for the car award. The Ridgeline won over the Ford Explorer and Nissan Xterra.
This is the first year that the Honda Division has won either the car or truck award. The winners were chosen by a jury of 49 auto journalists in the United States and Canada.
