New and Notable:
The 2013 Honda Accord came to the Los Angeles Auto Show to brag about its newly redesigned body and especially its new LaneWatch feature. LaneWatch helps to eliminate those pesky blind spots; a camera mounted on the passenger's side rearview mirror displays the next two lanes adjacent to the car when the right blinkers are activated in the Accord's standard eight-inch LCD screen, making it easier and safer to change lanes.
Since the Accord was released a few months ago, it didn't get the same billing as the debuting 2013 Honda Civic at the show. Sitting inside felt how you would expect an Accord to feel: spacious and comfortable. With a starting MSRP of $21,600, it's easy to see why the Accord is second only to the Toyota Camry in sales. And Honda hopes this new version will have enough to push it over the top.
