In the January issue of Car & Driver, they had an article on why the Accord (ICE engine) and BMW 3's has had a dynasty year over year for making the Ten Best Cars. In the final paragraph of the article they go on to say "In some ways, the 3-series feels like an expensive Accord, which feels like an economy 3-series". that says a lot about the Accord. I haven't test driven the Accord, but the specs looks more compelling than the CT. It's mpg is rated at 50/45, the 0-60 was observed at 7.2 sec for the hybrid, faster than the hon-hybrid, and the base price is $3k cheaper. But the CT is probably a better handling car being smaller and lighter. So the Accord is bigger, faster, cheaper, and gets better mpg, it would be worth a look if you are shopping for a hybrid. If I didn't own the CT, that car would probably be at the top of my list to consider.
