Remember when the Accord was the best selling Honda in America? No? Well, it was a while ago. Times change, and market trends come and go. The CR-V crossover has taken over the spot of America’s most popular Honda, while the Civic compact car also now outsells the Accord.
We aren’t knocking Honda’s mid-size sedan. In fact, the 2020 Honda Accord is one of our favorite cars. And we’re not the only ones that love the Accord’s sporty driving characteristics, high fuel-economy, spacious cabin, and legendary quality and durability. Americans have bought more than 12.7 million Accords since 1976, and it’s still one of America’s best-selling cars with sales of nearly 270,000 last year. Now in its 10th generation, the family-friendly Accord is still built in Marysville, Ohio, just as has been since 1992. It competes very successfully against a long list of popular, high-quality, high-value family sedans including the Nissan Altima, Toyota Camry, Hyundai Sonata, Kia Optima, Subaru Legacy, Volkswagen Passat, and Mazda6.
