The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
Honda hasn’t changed much about the Accord, and that’s a good thing. In base four-cylinder form, the 2010 Honda Accord feels sophisticated beyond its price range, and even as a $30,000 coupe or sedan, the top V-6 models offer compelling refinement, performance, and luxury. The 2010 Nissan Altima remains one of the sportier choices among mid-size sedans, though if interior space matters, it might not feel as roomy as rivals.
