The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Honda Accord is one of America's best, most sensible sedans, even if it hasn't changed radically. The Jetta draws drivers looking for a taut driving feel and delivers superior interior space; we'd pass on the low-cost base models, and aim for the standout TDI and GLI editions.
