A blue Honda – Are you ever so groggy in the morning, coffee in hand, stumbling out of the door that all your looking for is your blue car?
That’s what happened this week.
This week I drove a blue Honda Accord 4 DR EX-L and a blue Volkswagen CC 2.T R-Line.

The 2015 Volkswagen CC is a sleeper in that class and one I would recommend. I love the TSI engine and the drivability of the car. The exterior is reminiscent of its sister the Audi A7.
The Honda – any Honda – has so many safety features that other car companies don’t have. The 2016 Honda Accord will include a suite of sensing technology. I will check if Honda has done anything in 2016, but the sound of the trunk shutting was metal on metal. ouch
If you’re going to buy Honda, I would look at the 4D 2.4 L4 EX-L Continuously Variable Transmission w/ Navi & Honda Sensing PZEV for an MSRP of $30,570 or the 4D 3.5 V6 Touring 6-Speed Automatic Transmission PZEV MSRP of $34,580.
