The 2013 Honda Accord is, once again, rated among the best mid-sized sedans. Consumer Reports magazine, a trusted name in auto reviews, picked the car as its top favorite mid-size four-cylindar.

Consumer Reports noted the model’s improvements over last year, and also praised its “roomy interior, frugal fuel economy, fun-to-drive character and an attractive combination of features and price.”

The Accord definitely lives up to the hype: with a 2.4-liter engine and continuously variable automatic transmission, the sedan earns 40 miles per gallon on the highway, with an average rating of 30 mpg. It features an updated, sporty exterior and plenty of space on the inside.
