the redesigned Honda Accord scored higher than any other vehicle tested by the publication during the past year, regardless of price or type.
Accord even outpaces German luxury models. "This new model is roomy, nice to drive, well-equipped and very fuel efficient…30 mpg overall and 40 on the highway, which is as good as the tiny Honda Fit," the magazine reports.
The good showing wins Accord the cover photo spot on the magazine's annual April auto issue, highlights of which were announced today at a meeting of the Washington Automotive Press Association in Washington, D.C.
CR cites "the car's better ride and improved braking performance. …The interior has also been spruced up…In short, the Civic has improved enough to regain its 'recommended status'."
