What do the Chrysler Pacifica and Volvo XC90 have in common? Both are past winners of Cars.com’s annual Best Of Awards, given to the best cars of the year during the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). On January 16, during Cars.com’s 2018 Best of Awards event at the NAIAS in Detroit, we’ll announce the winner for 2018. One of these nominees will win:

Best of 2018 Nominees:
Honda Accord
Honda Civic Type R
Kia Stinger
Volkswagen Atlas
Volkswagen Tiguan
Volvo XC60

Will Volvo, a winner for 2016, become a two-time winner? The competition is certainly stiff, with the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas recently being crowned the Best 3-Row SUV of 2017 by Cars.com and the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan being named the Best Compact SUV of 2017 in a similar Cars.com test.

In addition, nominees for Best Pickup Truck of 2018; Eco-Friendly Car of the Year; Family Car of the Year; Luxury Car of the Year; and Most Fun-to-Drive Car of the Year were also announced. A complete list of nominees, as well as insight into the award, are available here. For those of you keeping score, the manufacturers with the most nominees for 2018 are Chevrolet and Honda (each with four).

Congratulations to all our nominees and follow @GrowWithCars for real-time updates from the Best of Awards event at NAIAS on January 16th!
