Default Accord: Honda Accord Wins Car and Driver Magazine's 2014 '10Best Cars' Award

Amid an increasingly competitive mid-size field, Car and Driver magazine has once again named the Honda Accord as a winner of its prestigious* annual '10Best Cars' award. The achievement marks the twenty-eighth time in the award's 31-year existence that Accord has won-more than any other vehicle and the seventeenth year in a row for Honda's flagship sedan.*


"The editors at Car & Driver have long appreciated Accord's almost singular mix of dynamic excellence and fuel efficiency balanced by a well-equipped, comfortable and practical package," said Michael Accavitti, vice president of marketing operations for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "They know that it's difficult to balance these attributes and yet it's something the Accord has done consistently for more than three decades."


"Once again, the Accord became the stand*ard by which the largest and most competitive class of passenger cars is judged," said Car and Driver.


Now in its ninth generation, the Accord has been sold in the U.S. since the 1976 model year and this year marks 31 years of Accord manufacturing in America1.

2014 Honda Accord

The 2014 Accord lineup features Honda's innovative Earth Dreams? Technology powertrains, including Honda's next-generation 2.4-liter, direct-injected 4-cylinder engine with continuously variable transmission or 6-speed manual transmission. The Accord Plug-In, with an 115 MPGe combined EPA fuel-economy rating2, and the Accord Hybrid Sedan, with a class-leading 50 mpg EPA city fuel-economy rating2, are powered an all-new highly efficient Atkinson cycle engine and two-motor hybrid system. Fuel efficiency is the best ever for Accord in the EPA Midsize class, with 4-cylinder models earning a 36 mpg highway EPA rating2 and the V-6 models garnering a 34 mpg highway EPA rating2.


In addition to fuel economy ratings leadership, the Accord has continually led the industry in meeting strict emissions standards. The Accord Plug-In is the first vehicle to achieve SULEV 20 emissions standards, with the lowest tailpipe emissions of any ICE vehicle currently available. Additionally the Accord was the first vehicle to meet ULEV (1998) and SULEV (2000) emissions standards.


Accord was the most popular midsize passenger car in America through September of 2013, based on sales to individual (non-fleet) car buyers, according to new vehicle registration data from R.L. Polk.
