Winners: Mazda, Honda, Ford and Porsche.

Media giant U.S. News & World Report today announced winners of its 2016 Best Vehicle Brand Awards. And its winners are decidedly foreign in nature.

This year, Mazda won the award for Best Car Brand, earning positive reviews for the well-made interiors and athletic driving dynamics of its lineup.

Honda took the 2016 Best SUV Brand award, impressing reviewers with the utility, interior comfort and family-friendly features of its SUVs. Honda's SUV lineup includes the newly redesigned Honda Pilot, Honda CR-V and the new Honda HR-V, all of which rank at or near the top of their classes: Midsize SUVs, Compact SUVs and Subcompact SUVs, respectively.

Ford earned the 2016 Best Truck Brand award for the strength of the Ford F-150. The Ford F-150 continues to lead the evolution of Pickup Trucks, adding high-tech connectivity features, fuel-saving engine and chassis features, as well as a dose of luxury for buyers.

Porsche won the 2016 Best Luxury Brand award. In recent years Porsche has expanded its lineup to include the Panamera, as well as the Cayenne and Macan SUVs. Reviewers say the new models live up to the performance aspect of Porsche's brand heritage and impress consumers with opulent interiors and the connectivity features that today's luxury buyer demands.
