Newest Honda Accord Faces Onslaught of Rivals

Detroit Free Press - August 20, 2012

Just five years ago, lead­ing the mid­size seg­ment wasn’t that dif­fi­cult. It was pret­ty much a two-car con­test between Accord and Cam­ry. Today, the 2013 Hon­da Accord sedan is up against the tough­est com­pe­ti­tion it’s ever seen.

Find out what the com­pe­ti­tion looks like.

[The Hon­da Accord] faces a new Nis­san Alti­ma that leads mid­size sedans in high­way fuel econ­o­my at 38 miles per gal­lon, and a revamped Toy­ota Cam­ry that has cement­ed its place as the best-sell­ing car in Amer­i­ca. The styl­ish Hyundai Sonata, the redesigned and low­er-priced Volk­swa­gen Pas­sat, and a new, more effi­cient Chevro­let Mal­ibu also are on sale. And then there’s the Euro­pean-look­ing Ford Fusion due out in the fall.
