You are what you drive. Or so the saying goes. Which brings us to the new LEVAccord from Honda. LEV is short for Low-Emission Vehicle. Which means its clean. How clean? Our engineers tell us it meets a seventy percent lower emission standard for smog contributing reactive hydrocarbons than the current federal regulations require. But you can tell your neighbors, "Gee, it's really clean:' It accomplishes this feat with no sacrifice in performance. And no increase in cost. In other words, it's exactly like many other Honda products. From our lawn mowers to our automobiles, we build products here in America that balance your desire for fun and performance with society's need for cleaner air. And better fuel efficiency Which means the folks who live in your neighborhood will come to the only logical conclusion. That you've made a responsible, thoughtful, just plain smart decision to drive the new low-emission LEV Accord. Who knows, maybe youll even acquire a new nickname in the process. HONkDA. Thinking.
