Earning a place on Automobile Magazine’s annual All-Star list is no easy feat. However, Honda has made it seem incredibly easy. The Accord has yet again earned this coveted award, showing that the latest generation is just as competitive as ever.

Honda has made it on to Automobile’s All-Star list 18 times since the awards inception in 1986. For 2013, the magazine’s Editors were enamored with the latest model, which made its introduction last fall. The 2013 Accord has already racked up plenty of awards since it hit showrooms, including Car and Driver Magazine’s 10Best, Ward’s 10 Best Engines and it was even named a North American Car of the Year Finalist.

“The Accord continues to demonstrate it’s the one to beat in the hyper competitive mid-size sedan segment,” said Mike Accavitti, senior vice president of auto operations at American Honda. “And to be recognized by a top automotive publication like Automobile Magazine as one of the most significant models of the year further validates our effort to deliver a best-in-class vehicle experience for our customers.”

While the midsize sedan segment is brimming with boring, shapeless vehicles, Automobile was impressed with the Accord’s quality and performance. While it may not excite on paper, the Accord possess the “soul of the NSX.”

“Whether you’re talking about a V-6 or a four-banger, coupe or sedan, the Accord feels like it aspires to standards that should apply to more expensive machinery,” noted Automobile’s Ezra Dyer. “Nobody told the Accord that it’s a mass-market conveyance, rolling out of Marysville at a rate of 1,900 per day.”
