It was way back in 1976 when Honda introduced the first Accord, a three-door hatchback that immediately found a loyal following. Initially, buyers were drawn to the Accord’s sporty driving characteristics and high fuel-economy, but soon fell in love with its now legendary quality and durability.
Forty-one years later, Americans have bought more than 12.7 million examples of the Honda Accord, and the model is perpetually one of America’s best-selling cars. Now in its ninth generation, and fresh off an extensive makeover just last year, the new 2017 Honda Accord continues to stand out with inspired style, an upscale interior and an adventurous, fun-to-drive personality.
The family-friendly Accord is a consistent favorite in the extremely competitive midsize sedan and coupe segments. It competes very successfully against a long list of popular, high-quality, high-value family sedans including the Nissan Altima, Toyota Camry, Hyundai Sonata, Ford Fusion and Chevy Malibu. The sporty Accord Coupe competes against a smaller list of rivals that includes the Ford Mustang and Chevy Camaro.
