Honda Accord Named ExtremeTech’s “Best Car of 2018” with Honda also Lauded for “Best Automotive Lineup”

The midsize car market is very competitive, and drivers near East Stroudsburg, Stroudsburg, Bethlehem, Easton and Jim Thorpe have a lot of great options to choose from. However, with the Honda Accord being named ExtremeTech's "Best Car of 2018," that choice may become a little easier.

There's another victory added to the honor of being named "Best Car of 2018," with Honda also lauded for "Best Automotive Lineup." At Ray Price Honda, we're thrilled to be able to show shoppers around Lehigh Valley and Lehighton exactly what qualities gave the Accord and Honda the wins they worked hard to earn!

ExtremeTech: Honda Accord Is Quick & Efficient

Too often, cars end up sacrificing power for greater efficiency, or vice-versa. With the Honda Accord, you get the best of both worlds. In 2018, there's a turbo engine custom-fit for you. For fuel economy, choose the 1.5L four-cylinder for an EPA-estimated 30 city and 38 highway MPG and save on trips to the pump.1

With the 2.0L four-cylinder, you'll get up to 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque for the boost you need to take advantage of that smooth and sporty handling. These new turbocharged engines play a major role in the success of the Honda midsize sedan.

Honda Safety for the Win

ExtremeTech praised the Honda Accord for making the Honda Sensing® suite of safety features standard across all trim levels. No matter which Accord you choose, you'll find advanced safety systems, such as Lane Keep Assist to help you avoid drifting, as well as Adaptive Cruise Control to help maintain a safe following distance from other cars.

Every trim above the entry-level LX adds available or standard Blind Spot Detection and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, so you'll be forewarned if you try to change lanes or back up into oncoming traffic. With all the best in safety tech, the Accord really stood out from the competition.    

"Best Automotive Lineup" Goes to Honda

According to ExtremeTech, Honda has three standout vehicles in almost every class it competes in. The Accord joins the Fit and Civic among exceptional sedans, and the CR-V, Odyssey, Ridgeline, and Pilot play very well in the crossover, minivan, and truck classes.

ExtremeTech also praised the Clarity plug-in hybrid for its excellent range (nearly 50 miles on electric and then 315 or more on gasoline). Also, the Civic Type R earned high marks for its sporty handling and lack of torque steer. With Honda, you get a wide spectrum of strength that touches every segment.

If you live or drive near East Stroudsburg, Stroudsburg, Bethlehem, Easton and Jim Thorpe, you'll want to take one (or more!) of these rides for a spin and experience all it has to offer.
