The totally revised Accord has already become one of the most decorated vehicles in Honda history, garnering a host of awards that include being named for a record 27th time to Car and Driver magazine's 10Best Cars list, as well as winning key comparison tests against its mid-size rivals in comparisons from Car and Driver and Cars.com/USA Today/"MotorWeek".

"The all-new Accord has the Honda brand right where we left off in 2012 - powering significant sales gains in the new year," said John Mendel, American Honda executive vice president of Sales. "With our strongest vehicle lineup ever and continued sales momentum, we're optimistic 2013 will be a great year for the Honda brand."

"Acura's newest products continue to drive our sales momentum as we begin a new year," said Jeff Conrad, vice president of Acura Sales. "With the positive reception of the all-new Acura MDX Prototype in Detroit, and the upcoming launch of our new flagship RLX sedan, Acura is poised for even greater success in 2013."

Didn't I read somewhere that Honda is going to refresh the ZDX? Hard to believe it would be worth the effort for < 500 per year. Do they sell it in any markets other than U.S. & Canada? I'm assuming the RL was discontinued.

They refeshed the ZDX for 2013 and announced that it would be shown the door in 2014.

You'd think that Honda could sell a hybrid or full electric... but noooooo... Honda people don't even want that crap. A good sign that there are sensible people in the world yet.
