C&D Honda Accord review
 Date: September 12, 2002 13:04
 Submitted by:  danielgr
 Source: Car and Driver
 Credibility Rating: N/A


From the article :
Sedan perfection, unclouded by emotion.

"But by leveraging that power advantage across five gear ratios instead of Nissan's four, the new Accord outperforms the Nissan by 0.3 second to 60 mph (7.0 seconds) and 0.1 in the quarter (15.5 seconds at 92 mph). The advantage over the previous Accord is more than a second from 50 mph onward, even though the new car outweighs its predecessor and the Altima each by about 100 pounds. And here's the kicker: It even gets better gas mileage than either of the above ? 21 city and 30 highway versus 20 and 28 for the '02 Accord, 19 and 26 for the Altima. "
