Accord Named to the Car and Driver 10Best List Again!

November 30th, 2014 by

HondaWe’ll never get tired of saying it: the new 2015 Honda Accord has made it onto Car and Driver‘s 10Best Cars in America list. This is a pretty big deal in and of itself, and we’re celebrating here at Central Illinois Honda Dealers, but there’s more than one cause for celebration.

In the 31 years that the list has been running, the Accord has been named to it a record 29 times. Twenty-nine times!

Making the 10Best List

We’re proud of the 2015 Honda Accord, but we have to admit that we’re not too surprised to see it on Car and Driver‘s list. After all, the Accord has been making the list nearly every year for decades, and we’ve seen how much our Central Illinois drivers simply adore this car, whether in the sedan, coupe, or hybrid versions.

Jeff Conrad spoke about the Accord’s place on the Car and Driver list, saying “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. 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.”

Conrad is the general manager and senior vice president of the Honda Division of American Honda Motor Company, although with all of the awards that Honda seems to be winning lately, responding to praise for the Honda lineup has become part of his day-to-day job.

Eddie Alterman, the Editor-in-Chief of Car and Driver explained their choice of the Accord as well, saying “[it] offers terrifically fluid and sporty handling, while functioning perfectly for everyday use.”

The Accord has been sold in the United States since 1976, and we are proud that in its nearly 40 years of service it has managed to impress drivers all over the country. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for the future of the Accord.
