TORRANCE, California — A $28,000 2013 Honda Accord is up for grabs in a new Honda trivia contest similar to Cash Cab, a Discovery Channel game show.

The first six-hour event is Saturday in New York City’s Time Square and moves across the country this fall to Chicago, Phoenix and Los Angeles to promote the redesigned sedan.

The Honda contest is hosted by comedian Ben Bailey, host of the original Cash Cab. The “Take a Drive in The Accord Cash Car Contest and Sweepstakes” has participants studying several models of the 2013 Accord, texting their favorite interior and exterior features, and then teaming up to answer a series of questions related to the new features on the sedan.

Correctly answering them earns participants cash prizes, with each right answer worth more money as the game continues, much like Discovery Channel’s Cash Cab.

The contest kicks off at 2 p.m. on Saturday in Times Square and will be broadcast live to attendees on a large-screen display. After New York, the event moves to: Chicago’s Navy Pier Gateway Park on October 20; the Arizona State Fair in Phoenix on November 3; and the Hollywood & Highland Central Courtyard in Los Angeles next to the Kodak Theater on November 10.

The marketing idea behind this quirky contest is to raise awareness about the Accord, said Honda in a statement.

Edmunds says: Cash Cab host Ben Bailey finally gives a real free ride.
