(first posted 10/22/2015) Taken from R&Ts May 1979 issue, these two Japanese cars are the same- or are they?
I thought they deserved a post, since to me these are THE ultimate CCs. I mean, when did you last see any of these still in motion? Also, interesting that those tests should be published in the same issue that hailed the Citation and the GM X-cars, which could well be considered competitors to the Corona and Accord.
First, the Corona:
I love how in last paragraph, one of their testers says: “This car is about as interesting as a 1962 Chevy”…
Now read the Accord’s Road Test:
Well, the Honda gets to be on top. Maybe I shouldn’t compare them. After all, R&T didn’t- those Road Tests were held and published apart. It looked to me like they had too much in common to be addressed separately.
