The Honda Accord has come a long way since it debuted in 1976 as a 3-door hatchback. The latest eighth-generation Accord debuted in 2008, and now features things the '76 Accord never would have dreamed of like leather trim, GPS Navigation, and the most powerful engine in a Honda Accord yet with a 271-horsepower V-6. Available as either a coupe or a sedan, the base Honda Accord starts at $20,905.

undefined Review from: MyRide.comundefinedSense of predictability and control in everyday drivingundefinedTransmission shows a high degree of refinement, providing ultra-smooth powerundefinedSedan has a lack of visually distinctive styling from peersundefinedIn the backseat of the coupe leg room and head room are in short supplyundefinedTo some, quality is measured by the amount of fine leather and alloy trim found in their new vehicle, but for others, quality is summed up with descriptors such as "solid" and "durable." For those people, the new Accord should be right up their alley.  undefined

undefined Review from: Roadandtrack.comundefinedCoupe version of the Accord by far the sportiest everundefinedInstruments and controls are straightforward and easy to useundefinedNoise cancellation system addresses helps quell tire and wind noiseundefinedLacks 6-speed automatic transmission common in this classundefined[T]he Accord remains a safe bet when it comes to recommending a car to friends and family. And with this infusion of performance and style, especially in the coupe version, the Accord is certainly worthy of inclusion on your own personal shopping list.  undefined

undefined Review from: Autoblog.comundefinedThe 3.5L V-6 couldn't be smootherundefinedNAV system to quite easy to use with minimal menu navigationundefinedIncredibly comfortable and supportive front seatsundefinedSlightly intrusive trunk hingesundefinedIf there is a single element I would take from the Accord and apply to every other vehicle on the road it is the front seats. undefined

car reviews by moms, for momsundefinedFelt very safe driving in threatening conditionsundefinedLots of convenient nooks and crannies for myriad of mommy thingsundefinedLarge interior makes it tough for short drivers to make easy contact with rear passengersundefinedMemorizing dash button functions might take weeks!undefinedAs I got acquainted with the Accord’s interior, I felt as though it met all my checklist needs, but it didn’t thrill me in any way. It’s kind of like when you and your girlfriends used to discuss the boys in your class — some guys seemed to work well on paper, but no one was interested in them.  undefined

undefined Review from: Jalopnik.comundefinedRide absorbs all but the worst roadsundefinedPacks space for five and their luggage into a reasonably svelte shapeundefinedNav screen can't be viewed pretty much anytime the sun is above the horizonundefinedHandling is floaty and imprecise at speed; don't expect to enjoy the experience.undefinedThe 268bhp V6 does 0-60 in 5.7 seconds. That's ridiculously fast for a practical, mid-size car. 15 years ago this would have outrun most Porsches. We just wish it didn't try and light up the front wheels with such ferocity every time your right foot starts feeling heavy.  undefined

undefined Buying tips from: Thecarconnection.com undefined if you'll be swapping your Accord in a few years for a new car, buy an automatic-equipped sedan for top resale value. undefined Honda's navigation system is one of the best on the market--but it's not that much better than a $200 GPS. undefined Accord sales have slipped less than sales of other family sedans--there are rebates, but don't expect the fire sales you'll see at other brands. undefined The Accord is a smart alternative to the more expensive Nissan Maxima and Lexus ES350, but watch the expensive options--or you'll spend just as much.
