Torrance, Calif. 01/08/2004 -- The 2004 Honda Accord Sedan was chosen as the best family sedan, beating out nine other competitors, in a comprehensive comparison test by the editors of Edmunds.com, a top online source for vehicle information.

Edmunds.com editors gave the Accord high marks for interior material and build quality, along with ride comfort, interior space and drivetrain refinement. The testing involved a 23-point evaluation to determine the overall leaders in areas such as performance, features and value.

"The editors of Edmunds have done their homework and found the Accord to be the best of the best in its class," said Karl Brauer, editor-in-chief of Edmunds.com. "While other vehicles may do one or two things well, it's the Accord's ability to excel in so many areas that ultimately put it at the top of our ratings."

"The Accord continues to win accolades as the benchmark for all vehicles in its class," said Dick Colliver, executive vice president of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "With class-leading performance, features and value, and the lowest ownership cost in its class, the Accord is clearly the smart buy."

Edmunds.com 2003-2004 Family Sedan Comparison Test

1st Place: 2004 Honda Accord

2nd Place: 2003 Mazda 6

3rd Place: 2004 Toyota Camry

4th Place: 2003 Nissan Altima

5th Place: 2004 Volkswagen Passat

6th Place: 2004 Mitsubishi Galant

7th Place: 2004 Chevrolet Malibu

8th Place: 2003 Hyundai Sonata

9th Place: 2004 Chrysler Sebring

10th Place: 2004 Suzuki Verona

In addition, the Accord was recently awarded "10Best" status by Car and Driver Magazine, resulting in the Accord winning 18 of the 22 years that the editors have been evaluating new vehicles. It also continues to hold the publication's record for the most "10Best" trophies in the history of Car and Driver's competition.
