This being January, we are getting a lot of end of year lists. Kelley Blue Book (www.kbb.com) has just released its list of the Top 20 Most Researched Vehicles of 2006. They had more than 140 million visitors to their website last year, and the vehicle that those people wanted to know about more than any other was the Honda Civic. Perhaps your silence at hearing this shows that the announcement is as revolutionary as MT picking the Camry as COTY, but these kinds of lists are useful in letting the industry know what cars are hot and which ones are not.

The list has been dominated by Toyota and Honda for the past couple of years and 2006 was no exception. The top nine cars were from those two manufacturers. And if you include Acura in the total, they accounted for 13 of the top 20. Although Honda had the number one spot, Toyota placed seven vehicles on the list to beat Honda's five listings. Six if you include the Acura TL, which finished at number 13. The Mustang was the highest placed domestic at number ten.

Check out the full list after the jump.
