The 2024 Accord is a year removed from a major redesign, and as such, doesn't have any significant changes. The dimensions of this Accord is largely the same as the previous generation model, but added more technology, revised styling, and incorporated the hybrid model into the trim levels.

2023 - 2024

2023-present Honda Accord generation

Latest generation Honda Accord

The 11th generation Honda Accord will be familiar to fans of the 10th generation. It received styling updates, including a sportier front-end and sleeker profile, and brought a greater focus to Honda's hybrid powertrain. The only trims you can get with a gas engine are the LX and EX, while the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine has been retired completely. 

Most of what made the Accord popular remains in the 11th generation. It's comfortable, roomy and pleasant to drive. Fuel economy is an excellent 48 mpg combined on hybrid models according to the EPA, and solid on non-hybrid models at an EPA-estimated 32 mpg combined. But many of the Accord's best features are reserved for the top trim levels, which hurts the Honda's value proposition.

2018 - 2022

2018-2022 Honda Accord generation

Tenth generation Honda Accord

The 10th generation Honda Accord is the most highly rated car in its class by Edmunds and is only available as a four-door sedan. It 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.

$19,998 - $45,998

Model highlights

  • Standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™

  • Standard advanced driver assist features

  • Powerful engines

  • Available head-up display (HUD)

  • USB input and charging

2013 - 2017

2013-2017 Honda Accord generation

Ninth generation Honda Accord

Available as a four-door sedan or a two-door coupe, ninth generation Accord models offer generous interior and cargo space and a sporty driving persona with three engine choices. 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. 

$14,599 - $29,998

Model highlights

  • Available Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ (2016-2017)

  • Available advanced driver assist features (2016-2017)

2008 - 2012

2008-2012 Honda Accord generation

Eighth generation Honda Accord

The eighth generation Accord is larger than prior Accords and offers more power and improved fuel efficiency. It's offered as a sedan and sporty coupe, and comes 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® and 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.

$13,998 - $23,998

Model highlights

  • Backup camera (EX-L V6, 2011-2012)

  • Ample passenger space

  • Excellent visibility

  • Good fuel economy

  • USB input for audio (2011-2012)

  • Bluetooth phone interface
