Honda Accord and Fit Receive Car and Driver Magazine's 10Best Cars Awards
Car and Driver magazine has named the all-new 2013 Honda Accord and the Honda Fit as winners of its prestigious and highly competitive annual '10Best Cars' award. Now in its ninth generation, the Accord has achieved '10Best Cars' status 27 times in the 31 years that Car and Driver editors have been conducting the competition, more than any other vehicle in the award's history. The Honda Fit has been honored with "10Best Cars" status in each of the seven years that it has been on sale in the United States.
"The Accord and Fit both embody Honda's core values of ingenious packaging, great visibility, fun driving dynamics and fuel efficiency," said Michael Accavitti, vice president of marketing operations for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "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."
The Fit has been sold in the U.S. since the 2007 model year and is manufactured in Sayama, Japan. The Accord has been sold in the U.S. since the 1976 model year and this year marks 30 years of Accord manufacturing in America1.
