Best Mid-Sized Car: 2014 Honda Accord
The Honda Accord is no stranger to accepting our congratulations as the Best Resale Value Award winner in the Mid-Size Car category. It has won the prize in four of the last five years. This year’s award is especially mantel-worthy, however, because the mass of superb mid-size sedans has never been better, their quality higher, their teeth sharper.
To say the the Accord stepped up to meet the competition head-on is a 6-feet-understatement — the 2014 Accord buried the competition. With body styles that included a sedan and coupe, fuel-saving drivetrains that range from refined to rowdy, and a Christmas-morning set of standard features in all models, the 2014 Accord’s appeal stretches frighteningly close to being universal. Near-absolute quality and reliability come standard as well.
New this year is the introduction of a hybrid model and a plug-in hybrid variant.
So why the Accord? The things that make the 2014 Honda Accord so easy to recommend mirror what gives it such strong resale value: We expect an Accord to be good, but this Accord is better than our expectations. From its interior layout to its effortless driveability to the seamless performance of its continuously variable automatic transmission, the Accord takes complete care of your peace of mind.
