Honda produces another winner with its second-generation Accord Euro
18 Jul 2008
WE’VE heard it all before and we’ll hear it all again. Car companies saying they benchmarked their latest model against the BMW 3 Series – funny how it’s never the Kia Credos – and so it is with the all-new Accord Euro. So where does the all-new Honda sedan fit in the New World Order? If the tactile Ford Mondeo drives like a cut-price BMW and the Mazda6 has the roundedness of a Mercedes, then the base Euro II is all about detail and finesse – much like an Audi, you might say, but at Skoda prices. Ladies and gentlemen, at $32,990 plus on-roads, prepare to be impressed by the base model.
