Celebrating it's 30th year as an worldwide event, the North American global Auto Show (NAIAS) is among the most prestigious auto shows in the world.

The Car, SUV and Truck of the year announced Monday morning at the North American International Auto Show in Detorit.

Larger than models from previous years, the Accord edged out the Toyota Camry and the Kia Stinger for the honor presented in Detroit. On the auto side, the all-new Accord beat out the Kia Stinger and Toyota Camry. The Honda Ridgeline was crowned truck of the year last year, and the Honda Civic won auto of the year in 2016.

To be eligible for the awards, a vehicle had to be new or substantially changed for the current year.

Sixty U.S. and Canadian automotive journalists serve as judges for the awards program, which patterned itself after the European Car of the Year.

The Car of the Year award is reserved for models that are new, or significantly updated, for 2018. "Not only is this 10th-generation Accord far sleeker and more decisively styled than its predecessor, it's somehow roomier inside, too".

The wins for the Navigator and the XC60 gave this year's awards a luxury skew.

Voting for the Car, Utility Vehicle and Truck of the Year began in June 2017, where three rounds of voting narrowed down nine finalists and three winners. The vehicles were judged based on factors including innovation, design, safety, driver satisfaction and value for the dollar.
