Multiple Honda Vehicles Earn Accolades from Car and Driver Magazine
The popular Accord and Fit have been named to the magazine's 10 Best Cars list.
Both new Honda vehicles, available now at the Barrington dealership, have received recognition for their design and performance excellence in the past; however, there is a certain prestige afforded to vehicles honored by Car and Driver (http://www.honda.com/
This is nothing new for the Accord — Honda's popular sedan has been on the list an impressive 27 times in the 31-year history of the awards. That the ninth generation of the Accord is still making waves and taking home trophies after a significant evolution from previous models shows that Honda updates their vehicles to meet the ever-changing needs of drivers.
The Accord is the only vehicle in existence to have this level of popularity with Car and Driver.
Although the Accord's success cannot be overstated, the Honda Fit has managed a different type of success: there has not been a year where the Fit has been excluded from the 10 Best Cars list. Since its inception, Honda's compact hatchback has wowed drivers and critics, and its performance in awards like these serves to bolster its reputation.
Michael Accavitti, vice president of marketing operations for American Honda Motor Co., said that “the Accord and Fit both embody Honda's core values,” citing their visibility, driving dynamics, fuel economy, and packaging. He went on to say that “The editors of Car and Driver continue to recognize these attributes and our vehicles as among the industry's best, a sentiment clearly echoed by Honda's customers.”
Both the 2013 Honda Accord and the 2013 Honda Fit are available now at Motor Werks Honda, and to learn more about these award-winning Honda vehicles or to take one for a test drive, drivers can contact the dealership online (http://www.motorwerkshonda.com/
