Ypsilanti, MI (I-Newswire) March 15, 2013 - As one of the leading Michigan Honda dealerships, Fischer Honda is proud to announce that two of the most adored vehicles produced by the automaker - the 2013 Accord and CR-V - have been named "Best in Class" by Consumer Reports.

While the magazine detailing all of the class-leading vehicles for 2013 is not set to hit the newsstands until April of this year, the Associated Press got the scoop on these Honda models.

As with the entire lineup of 2013 Honda vehicles, the CR-V and the Accord feature a new level of standard features, with technology and amenities that set them apart from competing vehicles. Standard from the base-level LX trim on up are

• Bluetooth phone and audio streaming- Compatible smartphones and MP3 players can by synced to the vehicle for handsfree calling and steering wheel-controlled music selection.

• SMS text messaging- Combatting one of the greatest distractions on the road today Honda has made it possible for drivers to stay connected and text with the built in voice-to-text interface.

• Rearview camera- For added safety and to make parking and backing up simpler, Honda has included a rearview camera system on every new model.

• i-MID infotainment system- The brains that connect all of Honda's new technology, the intelligent Multi-Information Display features a customizable background, and a touchscreen to help control everything in the car. Available at the driver's fingertips are up to date diagnostics and fuel economy statistics as well.

Beyond these updates to features, Honda has continued with their dedication to safety among all of their vehicles, and while the Accord and CR-V received praise from Consumer Reports, the Civic earned the IIHS's coveted Top Safety Pick+ award for the 2013 model. Put simply, Honda is going to need a new trophy case soon, if they don't already.
