Honda Accord - $24,640

Why do we love the Accord? Let us count the ways. This 33-time 10Best winner shows great attention to the details and does everything well. It's roomy, efficient, lively, and fun to drive while at the same time being quite refined. It's solidly built. Its interior is handsomely designed. The base 192-hp turbocharged inline-four-cylinder engine is peppy, and we love that you can get the Accord with a manual transmission. Honda's suite of active safety gear is standard. The Accord is priced right, too. In fact, our preferred model, the Accord Sport, adds visual spice and fatter, lower-profile tires and still comes in at a very reasonable $27,100.
