2013 Honda Accord Named Best New Sedan Under $25,000 by Kelly Blue Book

Kelley Blue Book and editors at KBB.com announced that the 2013 Honda Accord is the best all-around sedan. At same time, KBB.com also announced the 2013 Honda Civic is the best new compact car. We can’t really add much to what the news release said, so here it is in it’s entirety.

I guess we could add, Woo hoo!

“The 2013 Honda Accord and Civic were named to KBB.com’s list of the 10 Best New Sedans Under $25,000. The Honda Accord was the top ranked vehicle on the list of new vehicles introduced in 2013 compiled by the auto experts at KBB.com. The Civic was the highest rated compact car on the list.

“Nothing beats the value Accord and Civic offer customers” said Mike Accavitti, senior vice president of auto operations at American Honda. “Both models deliver on all fronts – value, performance, fuel efficiency, top safety ratings and a wide array of standard features – all at a competitive price point.”

“As the top ranked model on the list, the Accord was recognized by the editors of KBB.com for its sophisticated styling, excellent driving performance and innovative features, like the available LaneWatch™ blind spot display. Additionally, Accord earns industry-leading safety scores, having been rated a TOP SAFETY PICK+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and distinguished by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) with a 5-star Overall Vehicle Score1.

“While other mid-size cars have threatened its dominance, now we can definitively say that the Accord is back on top, with the completely overhauled 2013 model hitting No. 1 on our list of the ’10 Best Sedans Under $25,000′,” said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director for Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com. “The latest Honda Accord is as refined as any previous edition, but with a newfound sense of sporty style and cool new technologies that are as user-friendly as the car itself.”

“The 2013 Honda Civic was the top rated compact car on the list. KBB.com applauded the Civic for its revised interior and exterior styling along with an impressive list of standard features, which includes rearview camera,Bluetooth™ connectivity and Pandora® internet radio capability. The Civic also earns industry-leading safety scores; having been the only compact car rated a TOP SAFETY PICK+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and distinguished by a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) 5-star Overall Vehicle Score1.

Honda Accord Hybrid Gets Better Gas Mileage Than Toyota Camry Hybrid

The much-anticipated 2013 Honda Accord Hybrid will go on sale in June in Japan and gets much better gas mileage than the Toyota Camry Hybrid. We have read reports that say the Honda Accord Hybrid will arrive in the U.S. late this year.

According to this article, the 2013 Honda Accord Hybrid “has a fuel-efficiency rating of 30 kilometers a liter under the country’s JC08 testing standards, Tokyo-based Honda said in a statement today. The Camry hybrid travels 23.4 kilometers a liter, according to Toyota, while Nissan Motor Co. says its Teana, which runs on gasoline, goes 11.4 kilometers. ”

Ok, so we don’t measure our gasoline in liters, but it doesn’t take a genius to realize that 30 miles/liter is a significant improvement on 23.4 miles/liter.

The latest model’s fuel efficiency is “extraordinary,” Koichi Sugimoto, a Tokyo-based auto analyst at BNP Paribas SA with a buy rating on Honda, said by phone. “The new hybrid technology will definitely be a big strength for Honda.”

The 2013 Honda Accord is one of the best-selling and most popular sedans in the United States and we cannot wait to see the Accord Hybrid in action. We are very interested to find out how it performs and drives. And you can bet that you’ll be able to stop by Sims Honda, Northwest Honda and Apple Valley Honda to take one for a test drive!

Generations of the Honda Accord: Keeping Drivers Happy for Decades

The Honda Accord has been around for a long time. In fact, we are now in the 9th generation of the Honda Accord.

The first Honda Accord came out in 1976 and cost $3,995. Since then, the Honda Accord has become a juggernaut in the midsize sedan category. Check out the visual below from http://visual.ly/history-honda-accord to see a visual history of the Honda Accord culminating in the 2013 Honda Accord, which is a hit with critics and consumers.

Which generations of Honda Accord did you drive?

Honda Accord, Civic Most Stolen Cars

The Honda Accord and Honda Civic are the top two most stolen and recovered vehicles in 2012 in the United States, according to a new LoJack Corp. study.

This is the Honda Accord’s third year at the #1 spot. The Honda Civic moved up to the #2 spot and the Toyota Camry fell to #3.

Why are the Honda Accords and Honda Civics the most stolen? It’s not that complicated, according to the writer of this article:

“The reason these cars top the list is an obvious one — these are popular models. But D.J. Thompson, director of law enforcement at LoJack, tells me that these cars aren’t just on the top of the list because there are more of them on the road than most other makes and models.”

Basically, Honda makes awesome cars, so more people buy them, which means more people steal them because there is a bigger market.

“It’s true, the Honda Accord and Honda Civic are some of the most stolen vehicle, but only because it they are two of the best and, therefore, most popular vehicles, on the road,” said Tod McLaughlin, general manager of Apple Valley Honda in Apple Valley. “In a way, it’s rather flattering.”

I guess there is a dark side to being some of the best-selling cars in the market. But should that scare people away? The writer of the article has experience with this exact issue when his own 1997 Honda Civic was stolen and here’s what he said:

“So did I abandon Honda for a less innocuous brand? Nope. They’re reliable, efficient. I’m comfortable with them. But my new car is a Honda Fit. At least that model’s not on LoJack’s top 10 list ­— yet.”

That’s right, Honda’s reliability and efficiency keep this loyal customer coming back even after he’s had a taste of the dark side of popularity.

2013 Honda Accord’s Technology Makes it a “Contender”

The performance, design, and overall quality of the 2013 Honda Accord has been well-documented by critics and consumers alike, but this reviewer sums up much of the success of the 2013 Honda Accord in one word: technology. Here’s what he had to say about some of his favorite technological features of the 2013 Honda Accord:

LaneWatch: “Instead of a simple blind spot warning light in the right exterior mirrror, Honda has a camera that SHOWS you what’s behind there. The camera displays its image on the “navi” screen, so as soon as you turn on your right turn signal, a video shows the road behind you on the right fading away. Of course, if there’s something in that vicinity, you’ll see that, too…The left outside rearview mirror has a split mirror with a more convex surface on the outer edge, again acting like a blind spot monitor. At first, I thought the convexity wasn’t enough, but it proved to be just right.”

Center console cameras: “There are two screens in the center of the dash; one for the navigation system (and back-up camera and blind spot monitor) and one for audio. If you aren’t using the top screen, it becomes a second audio screen.”

Green driving: “The best aid to green driving, however, is the speedometer surround. In normal mode, it is white, but when you start driving more economically, it turns green. Like many of these features, it almost becomes a game trying to keep it green.”

We agree that the technology included standard in all trims of the 2013 Honda Accord is what sets it apart from all other midsize sedans. That’s right, every trim comes with LaneWatch technology and a backup camera because Honda thinks that every driver should have technology to be safer.

Stop by Northwest Honda, Sims Honda, or Apple Valley Honda today to see for yourself all the technology that the 2013 Honda Accord has to offer you!

 

 

2013 Honda Accord Impresses Consumer Reports

The 2013 Honda Accord has received the much sought after blessing of Consumer Reports, the very respected consumer watchdog organization. ConsumerReports.org stated that Honda has met the expectations (and pressure) of redesigning the ever in-demand Accord with the 2013 Honda Accord. While the praise of the 2013 Honda Accord in this article by Consumer Reports (based on their “brief stint” when the car first came out in September) is somewhat reserved, it is nonetheless positive.

According to Consumer Reports’ initial review, “The Accord should certainly hold its own in both the marketplace, and barring unforeseen surprises, in our Ratings.”

Even better, in this article written a couple months later, Consumer Reports said Honda “nailed” the redesign of the Accord (and also blasts some other new sedans like the 2013 Subaru Legacy).

“The new Accord is roomy, nice to drive, well equipped, and very fuel efficient.”

Here are a few of the highlights that Consumer Reports say are improved in the newest edition of the Accord:

  • Steering is better and more responsive
  • Road noise is decreased
  • The continuously variable transmission (CVT) is well integrated
  • All trims come standard with USB connection, Bluetooth and “most impressively,” a backup camera
  • Upper trims come with forward-collision technology , lane departure warning system, and a camera/screen to help you see your passenger side blind spot (LaneWatch blind-spot camera system)
  • Competitive pricing: the four cylinder LX model starts at just $23,270.

The good news from Consumer Reports doesn’t stop there. “Inside, you are treated to one of the best driving positions available, comfortable seats, and terrific visibility.”

So, don’t just take it from us. Take it from the consumer advocates and Consumer Reports: the 2013 Honda Accord is the best new family sedan with room for everyone, handling to be jealous of, technology out the tailpipe, and gas mileage that leads its class.

Stop by Sims Honda, Northwest Honda, or Apple Valley Honda dealerships for you chance to take a 2013 Honda Accord for a test drive!

 

 

2013 Honda Accord Named to Safest Cars List

The 2013 Honda Accord is among the safest cars on the road according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Only the 2013 Ford Fusion and 2013 Nissan Altima were rated as highly.

According to this article, “The 2013 Honda Accord and 2013 Nissan Altima also earned the top five-star overall rating in federal crash tests, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.”

“Honda prides itself on designing and manufacturing some of the safest cars out there,” said Tod McLaughlin of Apple Valley Honda in Wenatchee. “The Accord has always rated as one of the safest cars, so it’s really no surprise that the 2013 is one of the top three safest according to the IIHS.”

But lest you think all of these cars are of equal safety, don’t be me mistaken. Only one of these cars passed the new test IIHS put cars under, the small offset test, which simulates the car hitting a post on the out third of the hood (where most reinforcement is). You guessed it, only the 2013 Honda Accord passed that test.

Stop by Apple Valley Honda, Sims Honda or Northwest Honda dealership to see if the safety of the 2013 Honda Accord is right for you!

 

Forbes.com Declares 2013 Honda Accord Car of the Week

Forbes.com Declares 2013 Honda Accord Car of the Week

We love a good, honest review of the 2013 Honda Accord. It has received bounteous positive reviews from critics and consumers alike, so it was refreshing to hear a more laid back (from possibly someone who is has much a cynic as he is a critic), but still positive.

Honestly, my favorite part of this review is how described drivers of Los Angeles freaking out when it rains. Made me laugh because that exactly what happens in Washington, too, and it rains way more here. Does that make it worse? I’ve never seen so much brake tapping and gingerly changing lanes in all my life as I silently scream “It rains 300 days out of the year here! It’s not even raining, it’s mizzling!” (Bonus points if you know what that is)

I digress…

As is pointed out by this review, the lane-change warning system of the 2013 Honda Accord came in especially handy as drivers “wiggled and waggled in nearby lanes.” No doubt that is a feature that would come in handy with our own fair-weather drivers.

While he calls the interior of the 2013 Honda Accord “bare-bones utilitarian bland,” I can think of another word for it: simple. Honda kept the interior simple because that is what most people like in their crowded lives. Need proof? The cult of iApple. Even this guy came around to say the navigation grew on him and was much more efficient than the one in the Aston Martin he drove around in. I’m not exactly sure what to think of that other than that I would expect the Aston Martin to come with a personal map reader for a navigation system, so we’ll take as a very good thing.

“ The interior is roomy and my large suitcase easily slid into the trunk with room to spare, though the car is actually over 3 inches shorter than the previous model. Honda has revisited proportions and worked the angles. It’s a small sedan that makes room for big people, particularly in those big bucket backseats.”

He points out the 2013 Honda Accord will never win in a Fast in the Furious race. So what? Who buys a Honda Accord to race it in the desert? The people who buy the 2013 Honda Accord want a car that gets 30 mpg and need an “Old Faithful” that is more than competent.

“The ninth generation has raised the bar over Accords past by ironing out discrepancies to become a more comprehensive sedan. Despite Honda’s struggles in recent years, the Accord is still a very decent car for the driver that is seeking reliability and a reasonably pleasant driving experience. In the post-tsunami reality, it’s reclaimed its rep as the little Honda that could.”

See what all the buzz is about and stop by Northwest Honda, Sims Honda or Apple Valley Honda dealership to take it for a test drive today!

 

Honda is the First to Meet California’s Strict Emissions Standards

Honda again shows that it’s leading the pack of environmentally-friendly vehicles and meeting stringent government rules regarding emissions. The Honda Accord Plug-In was the first vehicle to meet California’s emissions standards, the strictest in the nation.

“Once again, Honda is the first to comply with ARB’s most stringent standard,” says Tom Cackette, ARB’s Deputy Executive Office and head of the mobile source program. “Honda has demonstrated that a dedicated commitment to the environment and advanced engineering at every level of the company can deliver the cleanest cars well ahead of schedule.”

According to this article, the Honda Accord Plug-In “reduces greenhouse gas emissions by an impressive 50% from current required levels, bringing it to levels not mandated until 2025. As a result of the advanced technology in its design, the full-size sedan achieves the equivalent of 124 miles per gallon (mpg) city / 105 mpg highway in hybrid mode, and 47 mpg city / 46 mpg highway in standard (gas only) mode.”

So according to the above information, Honda is 12 years ahead of its time. Talk about over-achieving.

Honda continually proves why it has been the “Greenest Automaker” for the past several years with these impressive emission and miles-per-gallon numbers.

“Honda has always been a leader in creating environmentally-friendly vehicles,” said Tony Carter, general manager of Northwest Honda dealership in Bellingham. “I am proud to be a part of a company that creates vehicles that are the first to meet environmental standards. Honda takes initiative and doesn’t wait until it is forced to make more responsible cars. Even though the Accord Plug-In isn’t available in the Northwest yet, Honda has a long history of paving the way with cars that have low emissions and great gas mileage so drivers are buying and using less gas.”

The article points out:

  • The 1996 Honda Civic was the first vehicle to be certified as a Low Emissions Vehicle (LEV)
  • The 1998 Honda Accord was the first vehicle certified as the first Ultra-Low Emissions Vehicle (ULEV)
  • The 2000 Honda Accord was the first vehicle certified as the first Super-Ultra-Low Emissions Vehicle (SULEV)
  • The 2001 Civic GX natural gas vehicle was the first certified Advanced Technology Partial Zero-Emission Vehicle (AT PZEV)
  • The 2003 Civic Hybrid was the first certified Advanced Technology Partial Zero-Emission hybrid Vehicle (AT PZEV).

Check out all of the details about how Honda is the leading green automaker in the entire article.

What do you think? Does the fact that Honda is an industry-leader in creating environmentally-friendly vehicles persuade you to buy Honda?
