Honda’s sport utility lineup was named the best SUV brand for the fourth consecutive year by U.S. News and World Report.
The award recognized the recently updated 2019 Honda HR-V and 2019 Pilot as well as Honda’s CR-V. The main production site for the vehicle is at Honda’s facility in East Liberty. But workers at the company’s manufacturing plant in Marysville also assemble the CR-V.
“This recognition from U.S. News and World Report, now four years running, speaks volumes to the value we’re providing our customers in a market that can’t get enough of SUVs,” said Henio Arcangeli, Jr., senior vice president of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. and general manager of the Honda Division in a news release.
About 1,400 workers from Clark and Champaign counties work for the automaker, and it employs approximately 14,500 Ohioans overall. Several area companies, including KTH Parts Industries in St. Paris and Parker Trutec in Springfield and Urbana supply parts for Honda.
