For the past 30 years, Honda’s Accord has been a mainstay of the family sedan marketplace. Consistently one of the two top selling models in the category (Camry is the other one), Accord wins fans over with an excellent reputation for reliability, strong build quality, efficient and sophisticated powertrains, well-appointed interiors, and an engaging driving experience.
Handsome, if somewhat benign styling helps too.
Other points in the Accord’s favor include spaciousness, which brings up an interesting fact. The Accord has grown considerably since it was originally introduced back in 1976. So much so, today’s Civic is larger than the original Accord.
