Honda Accord Wins Car and Driver Magazine 2015 10Best Cars Award

For a record 29th time in the 31-year history of the award, Car and Driver magazine has named the Honda Accord to its prestigious annual list of the 10Best Cars in America.

“Once again, the Honda Accord is traveling down a road where no vehicle has gone before by winning a 10Best Cars award for an unprecedented 29th time,” said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division of American Honda Motor Co, Inc. “We’re honored to receive this award, which recognizes the exceptional engineering and driving performance that have helped make Accord a perennial top choice of individual American car buyers.”

“The Accord offers terrifically fluid and sporty handling, while functioning perfectly for everyday use,” said Car and Driver Editor-in-Chief Eddie Alterman. “It’s light on its feet and very driver-oriented, even if many of its drivers will never explore the full range of its dynamic capabilities. The Accord is an undercover sports sedan, and that’s what resonates with our editors year after year.”

Now in its ninth generation, the Accord has been sold in the U.S. since 1976 and produced in America since 1982. More than 95 percent of Accords sold in America are produced at the company’s Marysville, Ohio plant using domestic and globally sourced parts.

2015 Honda Accord
The 2015 Accord lineup features Honda’s innovative Earth Dreams Technologyâ„¢ 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’s fuel economy is best in class in the EPA Midsize category, with 4-cylinder models earning a 36 mpg highway EPA rating1 and the V-6 models garnering a 34 mpg highway EPA rating1*. The Accord Hybrid Sedan, with a class-leading 50 mpg EPA city fuel-economy rating1 is powered by an all-new highly efficient Atkinson cycle engine and two-motor hybrid system.

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.

*27 city/36 highway/30 combined mpg rating for Sedan CVT models. 26 city/34 highway/29 combined mpg rating for Sport Sedan CVT models. 21 city/34 highway/26 combined mpg rating for V-6 Sedan models. Based on 2014 EPA mileage ratings. Use for comparison purposes only. Your actual mileage will vary depending on how you drive and maintain your vehicle.
