The redesigned 2013 Honda Accord marks a return to the best of the mid-size sedans, according to Consumer Reports in its February issue, which compared Honda Motor Company’s redesigned 2013 Honda Accord models to Toyota Camry and Hyundai Sonata. According to Consumer Reports, the new 2013 Honda Accord tops the U.S. mid-size class for four-cylinder sedans, edging the Toyota Camry and Hyundai Sonata. The independent product testing organization noted the six-cylinder version of the 2013 Accord capably challenges the Camry V6 and Camry Hybrid for the top spot in the group’s overall ratings of mid-size cars.
The latest test results are published in the February issue of Consumer Reports magazine, which said the redesigned Accord “alters the mid-sized sedan landscape” and “returns to the front of the pack.” Results also can be viewed on the group’s website at http://www.ConsumerReports.org. USA Today also reported on the article in its Tuesday, February 26th edition http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/cars/driveon/2013/02/26/consumer-reports-honda-ford-toyota-accord-fusion/1947823/
They report that the redesigned Accord is well-rounded, capable and roomy, and is now the top-rated affordable family sedan. “The new 2.4-liter four-cylinder works well with the CVT and got an impressive 30 mpg overall. The unobtrusive CVT acts like a conventional automatic. The 3.5-liter V6 and six-speed automatic is punchy and refined, and gets a very good 26 mpg overall. Handling is quite agile and secure, and the ride is supple and controlled. The cabin is comfortable, with supportive seats, but the rear bench is snug for three. A backup camera is standard, as is dual-zone climate control. Top-trim models have a fussy radio. A plug-in hybrid, with an EV range of 10 to 15 miles, debuts in early 2013; a regular hybrid arrives in the summer.”
Consumer Reports cited the car’s “roomy interior, frugal fuel economy, fun-to-drive character and an attractive combination of features and price.”
Honda Accord gets 5 stars from VehicleTests.com, beating out pricey luxury vehicles like BMW, Mercedes and Lexus!
The all-new 2013 Honda Accord also gets a highly coveted 5-star review from VehicleTests.com, outperforming high priced luxury vehicles like BMW, Mercedes and Lexus. Honda held nothing back when it released the all-new 2013 Accord. Coupled with a complete redesign and a whole slew of industry-leading standard features, the ninth generation Accord is getting lots of attention.
According to Chris Kelly who road tested the all-new Accord for VehicleTests.com, “The latest incarnation of the Accord represents the best value-per-dollar of any vehicle on the market. After seeing all the high-tech standard features that come with the Accord, I got reverse sticker shock because the car was so inexpensive with more technology and safety features than a lot of luxury cars that are twice its price.”
