The Honda Accord coupe, like its sedan brethren, is all new for the 2013 model year. The redesign brings more cabin and trunk room and a peppy four-cylinder, along with new technology features. Overall, it retains the performance banner for the Accord nameplate — just don't expect it be as fun to drive as a Detroit muscle car, according to Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays.
Cars.com's Chevy Volt at 18,000 Miles
It's now been more than a year and 18,000 miles since we bought our 2011
Chevrolet Volt. After having the car for so long, we'd like to share some
of our lasting likes and dislikes about the car to give you an
all-encompassing view of our time with the plug-in hybrid. Overall, we're
pretty satisfied with the Volt, and despite its quirky cabin configuration
and powertrain, this is a real car that can accommodate everyday use,
according to Cars.com Executive Editor Joe Wiesenfelder.

2013 Honda Accord Coupe EX-L Review, Walkaround, Exhaust, & Test Drive
Honda proves it can still build a class-leading vehicle with the release of
their all-new 9th generation Accord. With its dizzying array of new tech
features, generous standard equipment list, and improved fuel efficiency,
it quickly puts the Accord back to the top 3 of the midsize family sedan
class. Our few gripes remain with its lingering ever-conservative styling
and a top trim touring model that looks too similar to an EX trim.

2014 Mercedes Concept S Class Coupé - Driving Scenes
Concept S-Class Coupé: An outlook on the new top-of-the-line model -
Sensual clarity as an expression of modern luxury
Traditionally the top of the Mercedes-Benz product range is occupied by the
grand coupé. With the Concept S-Class Coupé the company will provide a
concrete vision of the next model generation at the International Motor
Show (IAA) in Frankfurt: with its gorgeous appearance and self-assured
style it embodies the design philosophy of sensual clarity. In the interior
with its spectacular architecture and truly exclusive appointments the
four-seater defines the state of the art of modern luxury.
"The new S-Class Saloon was received enthusiastically in the market and
perfectly lives up to its role as a representative of the power of
innovation of Mercedes-Benz", says Dr Joachim Schmidt, Member of the
Management Board of Mercedes-Benz Cars, Sales & Marketing. "On the S-Class
Coupé as the traditional top of our product range the designers take
advantage of their additional freedom and thus create an automotive
Gorden Wagener, Vice President Design at Daimler AG, adds: "The Concept
S‑Class Coupé combines tradition and emotion, and is a symbol for the
embodiment of our design style of sensual clarity. The perfected design
with self-assured style and the highly exclusive appointments make the
coupé a true design icon and an expression of modern luxury".
Design: sensual clarity at its most beguiling
Sensual clarity as an expression of modern luxury -- this was the focus for
the designers, and is the design philosophy of Mercedes-Benz. The aim is to
create clear contours and smooth surfaces that stage high tech while
exuding emotional appeal. The sensual clarity is reflected in the core
design values of tradition, emotion and progressivism. These are the
guiding star, and are accentuated differently depending on the model.
Mercedes-Benz creates a bridge between modernity and the avant-garde,
between tradition and progressivism. Each model series has an assigned role
and a very specific character, depending on the attributes on which the
design focusses. And yet a Mercedes-Benz is always recognisable as a
Mercedes-Benz. Because in addition to incorporating new stylistic
developments, and in the interests of keeping tradition alive, the
designers draw from a gene-pool of styling features typical of the brand.
"Design needs the sublime! Because design is the best brand ambassador. At
the centre of our work is sensual clarity as an expression of modern
luxury, because this is precisely what gets to the heart of our brand
philosophy -- the bipolarity of intelligence and emotion", says Wagener.
The exterior: flowing profile of perfect proportions
The flowing profile of the Concept S-Class Coupé embodies sensual clarity
in a modern way. It is characterised by typical rear-wheel drive
proportions, which are emphasised by the Mercedes-typical signature, the
dropping line. The long bonnet with distinctive lines and powerdomes, the
cowering greenhouse with high beltline, the accentuated wheel arches as
well as the 21-inch wheels (tyres at front 265/35 R 21, at rear 295/35 R
21) and the visually broad rear substantiate the claim of the Concept
S-Class Coupé as a masterpiece of automotive refinement. With a wheelbase
of 2945 mm the coupé measures 5050 mm in length, 1958 mm in width and 1409
mm in height.
Positively arched surfaces give the Concept S-Class Coupé a sensual
character. The sculpted appearance lends it classic elegance that forms a
perfect symbiosis with the modern-progressive design idiom.
The view from the side is marked by the dropping line in keeping with the
emotional character of the vehicle. It underscores the brand-typical
proportions like a signature. The lines are deliberately reduced to the
basics. This creates a timeless clarity.
The creative interaction of various design elements lend the Concept
S-Class Coupé a superior and self-assured front: at the centre of the
vehicle front is the three-dimensional and further evolved diamond radiator
grille, whose structure is defined in this case by rectangular, dark
chrome-plated elements. It bears the central Mercedes star and one blade.
The full-LED headlamps with their iconic eyebrows as daytime driving lamps
lend it an extremely self-assured and distinctive gaze. On the Concept
S-Class Coupé the eyebrows have been further advanced with a semicircular
counter-swish. The diamond-look of the headlamps and the tail lamps
underline the luxurious appointments of the show car.
