This review is special. Why? Because rarely, if ever, is someone handed the keys to test-drive a vehicle and given 11 days with no mileage restrictions. After all, I was headed to the 2014 SEMA show in Las Vegas via the American Highway - Route 66. When trying to decide what would be worthy of a Route 66 roadtrip across the continent, there was plenty to consider.
The Subaru BRZ deals mostly in fun. Like its fraternal twin, the Scion FRS, the BRZ is for driving, as in actually driving, with two feet and two hands and eyes always on the road. Unlike the FRS, the BRZ is a bit more refined in appearance, but just as much fun behind the wheel.
The Honda Accord has been among the top-selling full-size sedans since it was upsized from a compact car to a mid-size in 1989. It's been on the Car and Driver 10 Best list a total of 28 times.

But then you drive it again, and all its hidden brilliance comes out to play.
