Default Accord: 2013 Honda Accord Wins Cars.com/USA Today/"MotorWeek" Midsize Sedan Shootout

The 2013 Honda Accord has won the top spot in the Cars.com/USA TODAY/"MotorWeek" Midsize Sedan Showdown, a competition among six popular midsize sedans that retail for under $26,000 and achieve 28 mpg or better combined EPA-rated fuel economy. A real-world family and experts from Cars.com, USA TODAY and "MotorWeek" recognized the Accord for its athletic and dynamic handling, comfortable driving experience and ample standard feature content. This is the fifth win for Honda in a Cars.com/USA TODAY/"MotorWeek" shootout with the current models of the Honda Odyssey, Pilot, CR-V and Fit also winning their respective shootouts.


"We're pleased that the real-world customers have determined that Accord excels in all areas, which makes the Cars.com/USA TODAY/"MotorWeek" showdown victory for the 2013 Accord all the more meaningful," said Michael Accavitti, vice president of marketing operations, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "The consistent strength of Honda products in these shootouts supports our strong position with in-market consumers."


"Accord is one of the oldest and most trusted midsize sedans on the market," said Patrick Olsen, Editor-in-Chief of Cars.com. "With each redesign, the Accord continues to get better and better. The 2013 won our showdown because of its high-end standard features, value for money and great driving ability."


Beyond this latest Cars.com/USA TODAY/"MotorWeek" shootout win, the 2013 Honda Accord is among the first vehicles awarded the TOP SAFETY PICK+ designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and was named to Car and Driver Magazine's '10Best Cars' list for a record 27th time. Additionally, the Accord was announced as a finalist for the 2013 North American Car of the Year.


The Cars.com/USA TODAY/"MotorWeek" competition measures all the needs of the average car-buyer including fuel efficiency, practicality, driving ability, comfort and features.
