The 2019 Honda Accord is a class leader thanks to its fun-to-drive nature, plentiful features, and interior that’s a cut above the competition

Available only as a 4-door sedan powered by conventional or hybrid drivetrains, the Honda Accord leads its class of mainstream, midsize sedans. Every Accord comes standard with advanced driver assist systems such as automatic emergency braking, and all but the base LX come with a touchscreen audio system with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration.

What puts the Accord at the top of its class isn’t its features, but a feel and driving experience that’s a cut above its competitors. With its upscale exterior design, it would be easy to mistake the Accord for a luxury sedan if it weren’t for the prominent Honda badges, and the same is true of the interior thanks to touches like open-pore-look wood trim. The Accord also rewards its driver with sharp steering and sporty handling, while still maintaining a comfortable ride around town. About the only downsides are interior noise levels that are higher than its competitors, and our partners at Edmunds have found that the real-world fuel economy doesn’t quite match its EPA estimates, but these are minor setbacks in an otherwise excellent midsize sedan.

5 reasons to buy the 2019 Honda Accord

What We Like

Upscale Feel: While some cars in this class remind you that they’re a value play, the Accord doesn’t make you feel like you’ve compromised by avoiding a luxury brand. Instead, it imparts the sensation of being in a much more expensive car. It’s not any one thing, but the entirety of how the Accord is styled, packaged, and drives that elevates the experience.

Performance: To be clear, the Accord is not the quickest car in its class, in fact it's about average for the class in terms of acceleration. But the way the Accord responds to the driver puts it over the top. It responds quickly and smoothly to provide power when you need it. The Accord also takes corners well, sticking to the road with no drama, and the brakes are easy to control for smooth stops. The steering, though accurate and easy, doesn't give you much feel for the road.

Storage: Honda has earned a reputation for efficient space management, and the Accord is no exception. There’s excellent trunk volume, and it’s the same whether you’re choosing a standard Accord or the Hybrid. Inside, there are plenty of spots for small items, including a huge center console bin, and a cubby in the dash that easily accommodates a smartphone. Families will appreciate the easy access car seat anchors in the rear.

What Needs Improvement

Fuel Economy: Even though the EPA estimates for fuel economy are easily competitive, real world testing by our partners at Edmunds show that the Accord comes up short. Even the smaller gasoline powered engine, and the hybrids, can’t quite match their EPA estimates, while other cars in this class can.
