Now in its eighth generation, the venerable Accord continues to set the bar for quality, performance, and value. On sale since 2008, the current Accord is one of the best-selling cars on the road, and for good reason. On the inside, the Accord features one of the largest interiors in its class and build quality is typically Honda, which is to say excellent. Although the exterior design has received some criticism, especially from Honda loyalists, we still feel this is a striking design that turns a corner for Honda, especially compared to the somewhat bland previous generation.
With its double-wishbone front suspension and independent multi-link rear suspension, the Accord drives with exceptional composure and handles well for a large car with touring tires. The optional 268 hp V6 engine provides a healthy dose of power, but even the standard 2.4L 4-cylinder engine is more than adequate for everyday driving. Altogether, the Accord is a car that you buy for your family, but you’ll never feel like you’re making much of a sacrifice.
