- Accord has been named to 10Best an unprecedented 34 times
- 22nd consecutive year Accord has received prestigious recognition
For the 34th time, the Honda Accord has been named to the prestigious Car and Driver 10Best list, a winning history unmatched by any other vehicle, with 2020 marking the 22nd consecutive year that the Accord has made the list.
The 10th-generation Accord was introduced as a 2018 model, redefining expectations of what a mainstream midsize sedan could be with its dramatic styling, sophisticated and spacious interior, and powerful yet fuel-efficient turbocharged engines. Joining the lineup a few months later, the Accord Hybrid offers outstanding fuel efficiency without sacrificing comfort, refinement or interior space, making Accord a standout among its peers.
"Alert steering and fluid handling turn every dogleg on-ramp, cloverleaf interchange, and 270-degree off-ramp into a momentary escape from the monotonous and the mundane," Car and Driver said in the article. "The precise action and satisfying weights of the steering wheel, the pedals, and the manual shifter suggest a kind of engineering harmony that you rarely find outside of sports cars."
Accord is the retail best-selling midsize sedan in America over the past 44 years1, with cumulative U.S. sales topping 13.8 million units, and U.S. production of more than 11.7 million units since going into production as the first U.S.-made car from a Japanese automaker on November 1, 1982, in Marysville, Ohio.
Honda offers a full line of reliable, fuel-efficient and fun-to-drive vehicles with advanced safety technologies sold through over 1,000 independent U.S. Honda dealers. The Honda lineup includes the Fit, Civic, Insight, Accord and Clarity series passenger cars, along with the HR-V, CR-V, Passport and Pilot sport utility vehicles, the Ridgeline pickup and the Odyssey minivan.
Honda has been producing automobiles in America for more than 35 years and currently operates 19 major manufacturing facilities in North America. In 2018, more than 90 percent of all Honda brand vehicles sold in the U.S. were made in North America, using domestic and globally sourced parts.
