The Today/MotorWeek competition measures and ranks cars according to a number of important aspects, such as fuel economy, practicality, drivability, comfort, and availability of features. The new Accord took the top spot in the midsize sedan category under $26,000 due to its long list of features and great value. In addition to being the winner of this competition the 2013 Accord has also been named a “Top Safety Pick” by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and was awarded a place on Car and Driver’s “10 Best Cars” list. Colorado drivers looking for the new Accord or any of the other latest award-winning Honda models can visit Fisher Honda in Boulder six days a week for a test drive.

The Honda Accord has been completely redesigned for the 2013 model year, and its changes have impressed the industry. The new model is now smaller and lighter than the previous version, which helps it to achieve segment leading fuel economy. It also offers superior handling and a high quality, well-equipped cabin.

Buyers have a choice of a mid-size sedan and a coupe body style, and trim options include the LX, Sport , EX, EX-L, and the EX-L with Navi. The base model comes with power accessories, cruise control, dual zone automatic climate control, and an iPod/USB interface with Pandora functionality.

The front-wheel drive Accord comes standard with a 2.4L inline four-cylinder engine that is paired with a six speed manual transmission. Honda’s new CVT is available as an option, and comes standard on upper trims. An upgraded 3.5L V6 engine is also available, which produces 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque. The V6 is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.
