The Swindon-made Honda CR-V and the recently facelifted Jaguar XF from Castle Bromwich have both picked up prizes in last night’s Honest John awards. The British-built pair both scored well with the site’s 1.4 million monthly readers – the prizes of Most Popular 4×4 and Most Popular large executive car are both packed with talented opposition, so these were hard-won victories by the UK pairing.

The cars were chosen, based on Google Analytics data, which analysed the number of page views for each car over the last 12 months. The CR-V’s award comes on the back of a particularly fine showing  in the honestjohn.co.uk MoT pass rates pages.

  1. They won because people looked at pictures of them on the web? Is that it? I obviously don’t get this. Well done anyway. What’s a suzuki splash? Some sort of power shower?

  2. Vauxhall Agila to most in the UK. Suzuki use to have the worse looking window licker in the WagonR, but now have the cuteist!

  3. Must admit that the Jag looks great, not to keen on the Honda, preferred the old one, shame we wasnt seeing any MGR cars! Regards Mark

  4. Whoa – Not TV’s Roy Walker? (Too much Phonenix Nights)

    Seriously – good result for both Jaguar and Honda

    Considering there have been new 5 series, A6 and E Class since the XF was introduced this is especially good news.

  5. Best MOT performer “Suzuki Splash” ! There is our proof that bare statistics are meaningless with context.

  6. You what? “The cars were chosen, based on Google Analytics data, which analysed the number of page views for each car over the last 12 months.” So nothing to do with how good the cars are, just how many anoraks are looking at their manufacturers’ websites?

  7. Interesting to see the Kia Picanto in there. Watch the Koreans; they are where the Japanese were when they first came to the UK, but the Koreans have very rich parents. And though this sounds like heresy, they’re starting to sell good cars…
