The Honda Accord
is thirty years old this year. If this is the kind of anniversary that tingles your lobes, then Honda
has got a promotional history website
for you. The Accord
history page tells the history of the model from idea ("a compact car that is easy to use and has a stylish, sporty look") to modern vehicle ("it is a car that inspires a state of harmony between the driver and the surrounding world"). Note how the Accord's (and Civic's
) low fuel use history is certainly emphasized in the corporate write-up. If only all automakers were so proud of their efficient history.
