Every year Automobile Magazine chooses its round up of “All-Star” vehicles. Our Maryland Honda dealership is extremely excited to announce that the 2014 Accord Coupe EX-L V6 made this list. To make this year even more special, staff from Automobile Magazine took these top ten all-stars on a road trip from Detroit to New Orleans.
Just to emphasize how awesome it is that the 2014 Honda Accord was chosen as an all star, the other all-star cars included the: Audi RS7, BMW 435I, Cadillac CTS VSport, Ford Fiesta ST, Jaguar F-Type V8 S, RAM 1500 Big Horn Crew Cab, Porsche Cayman S, Mazda 3 S Touring, and Scion FR-S.
Clearly there is an interesting array of autos that headed to New Orleans, with the Accord being the family car of the group. However, the powerful V6 was able to keep with the paces. Deputy Editor or Automobile Magazine, Joe DeMatio, states, “Think about the thousands of man-hours, the blood, sweat, and politics that went into laying down a particular swath of freeway—all so we can, in 2014, get into our amazing cars, sync our iPhones, and glide…”
Though the 2014 Accord is not on the same level of a Porsche Cayman, it does rule its own market. With 278-hp, 252 lb.-ft. of torque, and a six-speed manual transmission, it offers quite an invigorating ride.
Joey Capparella, associate web editor, captures why the All-Stars are perfect for a road trip stating, “It’s so refreshing and invigorating to turn off the satellite radio, disconnect the phone from Bluetooth, open the windows, and fully engage in the act of driving.”
Find out for yourself why the 2014 Accord made it into such a prestigious pack by visiting Pohanka Honda of Salisbury, our Maryland Honda dealership for a test-drive today. Call us at (866) 546-7992 and we will have the same model from the trip available for you.

Recent years have seen technological advancements springing forward in leaps and bounds. From information access to communication, today’s drivers are more geared toward staying in touch than ever before.
From tablets to smartphones, drivers are accustomed to having access to the information they need just about any time. Of course, things are a bit different on the go; using devices like these behind the wheel is not only against the law, but very dangerous. Fortunately, the 2014 Nissan Altima at our Fredericksburg Nissan dealership has adapted to meet the evolving needs of today’s drivers.
Thanks to the innovative NissanConnect system, 2014 Altima drivers can access a wide range of information at a moment’s notice. Most importantly, though, they can do so in ways that are safe while they’re out on the road.
Navigation in the 2014 Altima is a breeze with NissanConnect, even in traffic. SiriusXM Traffic compliments GPS navigation with real time traffic updates, and even offers alternate routes for avoiding collisions, traffic, or roadwork.
Communication comes naturally with NissanConnect, as well. The Hands-Free Text Messaging Assistant allows drivers to reply to messages on the go, while Bluetooth enables hands-free calling for keeping in touch.
NissanConnect also offers a wide array of apps for customizing your experience behind the wheel. Whether you’re streaming audio from your compatible smartphone using Bluetooth or finding new tunes using iHeartRadio or Pandora, your daily commute has never sounded so good.
Thanks to NissanConnect, the 2014 Altima delivers the features that today’s drivers crave when they get behind the wheel.

en has certainly earned its reputation among drivers as a leading automaker.
At our Maryland VW dealership, we can certainly attest to Volkswagen’s propensity for designing and creating some of the top performing vehicles on the road. It certainly isn’t hard to see why these vehicles are a top choice for spirited drivers.
Of course, exhilarating performance isn’t the only thing that drivers are after. These days, factors like fuel economy are equally important to drivers who are concerned with both their own fuel costs and the impact that their vehicle will have on the environment.
So, where does fuel economy fit into Volkswagen’s lineup of hot performers? Some drivers may be pleasantly surprised to find that even with Volkswagen’s impressively spirited performance, fuel efficiency is still right at home.
In fact, Edmunds.com, a leading destination for new car shoppers, recently ranked the best choices for drivers seeking outstanding fuel efficiency in 2014. The 2014 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid impressed reviewers and found its way into the top five on the list.
Anyone familiar with the 2014 Jetta Hybrid’s exceptional powertrain, though, won’t be the least bit surprise to see it earning such praise. Turbocharged to turn out 170 horsepower, the 2014 Jetta Hybrid still achieves impressive EPA estimates of 42 mpg in the city and 48 mpg on the highway.*
For drivers who want to experience the thrill of German engineering without sacrificing outstanding efficiency under the hood, this incredible sedan offers the best of both worlds. To learn more about the 2014 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid, or the rest of Volkswagen’s 2014 lineup, be sure to contact our VW dealership in Maryland online or to call us directly at (301) 808-7100 today.
