They were so, so obsessed with the Honda Accord in that article that it could have been a paid advertainment by Honda.
The majority of dudes at MotorTrend are just paid shills that love to overhype something, and that's just sad.
"Man I really like this Camry, got it for a great price and has everything I want it to have too, drives all right too!" :^)
"DI-DI-DID-DID YOU N-NOT EVEN CONSIDER THE HO-HO-HON-"
"HOW DO YOU EVEN NOT THINK ABOUT THE BEST CAR EVER? YOU BOUGHT A F-F-F-F-F*CKING CAMRY INSTEAD OF THE CAR AND COMPANY THAT WE'RE TOTALLY NOT BIASED ABOUT?"
"Oh, you mean the Honda A-"
"No man I just wanted a Camry......"
"TOYOTA SUCKS BOOOOO, BETA!"
Now yeah, I was obviously being tongue-in-cheek, and was a bit hyperbolic, but at this point they're not even hiding their love affair for Honda. It's obvious that they're clearly in bed with each other. I will admit that a lot of Hondas are genuinely great all-around products, but it's honestly ridiculous when you see how hard MotorTrend constantly simps for them and gladly. It gets tiring.
You see it with Lieberman, Bovingdon, Cortina, and so many others. The most notorious of them is most definitely Evans though. He's one of the worst and most biased writers on the face of this Earth.
I feel like MTOD just made it easier for me to stop watching their content.
