Blue Book Review

The Honda Accord is the Labrador retriever of sedans. If you want a hassle-free, pleasing family car with a reputation for quality and an immediate familiarity, it's hard to go wrong with the Accord. Coupe versions, meanwhile, add an element of sportiness, especially when fitted with the strong V6 engine.

If you like the idea of Toyota quality and resale value, but years of Camry mass-appeal styling has made you look elsewhere, the 2013 Toyota Camry will bring a smile to your face. Fuel economy on the hybrid model is actually better than some compact sedans.


All of the engineering upgrades that make the new Accord perform better than expected on a racetrack also give it a quieter, smoother and more responsive ride in everyday driving.

The recently redesigned Toyota Camry, while otherwise an IIHS Top Safety Pick, received a "poor" score in the small overlap test, while other popular family cars like the Chevrolet Malibu, Hyundai Sonata and Volkswagen Jetta received "marginal" scores in the new evaluation.

Car Connection

Honda's best-selling Accord is back with a major redesign for 2013, and it's gone through this transformation quite differently by keeping the V-6 on the table; improving mileage and refinement across the board; focusing on interior space; and in a turnaround from the brand's recent features philosophy, offering connectivity and safety-tech features on some of the volume models, not just the top-of-the-line trims.

Toyota essentially took a look at the existing car and asked how it could redesign nearly every component to make a better end result for core values like comfort and safety. What it ended up with, for better or worse, was a car that looked very much like the outgoing version.
