Honda Accord

Few vehicles over the past four decades have garnered as much respect in America as the Honda Accord. This midsize sedan hasn't achieved this status by being sporty, glamorous, or sexy. Instead, every year it has offered what most Americans want out of their daily transportation. Take an Accord for a test drive and you'll find it comfortable, roomy, intelligently engineered, and easy to drive. Its solid reputation for reliability gives it a strong resale value.

2018 - present

2018-2022 Honda Accord generation

This current-generation Honda Accord is the most highly rated car in its class by Edmunds.  Available only as a four-door sedan, the 2018-2022 Accord comes standard with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, so it's easy to integrate your smartphone into the touchscreen. It also has Honda Sensing®, which adds extra driver assist features such as forward collision warning and adaptive cruise control.

The standard 1.5-liter engine provides more than adequate power and excellent fuel economy estimates, but the 2.0-liter is undeniably more fun to drive. The Accord Hybrid offers a fuel-efficient alternative that splits the difference between the two gas-only engines in terms of power and offers an EPA estimate of up to 47 mpg combined.

2013 - 2017

2013-2017 Honda Accord generation

Available as a four-door sedan or a two-door coupe, Accord models built for 2013-2017 offer generous interior and cargo space and a sporty driving persona. 

Three engine choices are available. The base engine is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder with good power and estimated fuel economy. Higher level trims are available with a 3.5-liter V6 with 278 horsepower. It’s not as fuel-efficient as the four-cylinder, but it is the most powerful engine ever offered in an Accord. In 2014, Honda introduced a new Accord Hybrid with an EPA estimate of up to 47 mpg combined. For just the 2014 model year, Honda offered an Accord Plug-In Hybrid in limited markets, with up to 13 miles of EPA-estimated electric-only range. For the 2016 model year, the Accord underwent a significant update, with new styling, the addition of the Honda Sensing system of driver assist aids to the options list, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration on some trims, and an updated Accord Hybrid with more power and slightly improved trunk space.

2008 - 2012

2008-2012 Honda Accord generation

Available from 2008 to 2012, this generation of Accord is larger than prior Accords and offers more power and improved fuel efficiency. 

Offered as a sedan and sporty coupe, the 2008-2012 Accords come in a variety of trim levels to suit any buyer’s needs. These Accords are available with either a four-cylinder or V6 engine, both of which boast good fuel economy estimates considering the age of the car. A refresh for the 2011 model year brought new styling, plus updates such as a backup camera and USB input.

These Accords lack advanced driver assist systems such as forward collision warning you can find on newer models, but they do come with side curtain airbags and stability control as standard equipment. This generation of Accord is available with Bluetooth for phone pairing and also comes with an auxiliary input for audio, but no models are available with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, as that technology debuted later. The 2011 refresh introduced controls for the iPod® using the built-in audio system and USB input, which continue to be compatible with current Apple smartphones.
