Honda was also victorious in the medium car segment, for the previous generation Civic, while the Accord was named the most trustworthy large car. The FR-V won the MPV category and the previous generation CR-V was deemed the most dependable off-roader.
Overall, Honda received a reliability rating of 86 per cent, closely followed by Toyota (85 per cent), while fellow far eastern brands Daihatsu, Hyundai, Lexus, Mazda, Subaru and Suzuki all received ratings of 82 per cent.
Richard Headland, Which? car editor, commented: "Congratulations to Honda, which has topped the reliability table in most mainstream categories. Honda is setting the benchmark in car reliability and it’s up to other manufacturers to raise their standards to match.
"Several far eastern car makers are hot on its heels, but European manufacturers still have some catching up to do."
