Over the years, the Accord has also earned numerous awards and accolades. Earning its trust and loyalty with the baby boom generation, quality, reliability, and value from the Accord continue on with today’s generation. For the past three years, The Honda Accord has been the top retail-selling car in America1 and most popular midsize car with under-35 buyers for five of the past six years2.

“The Accord embodies the challenging spirit of Honda and our commitment to delivering innovative products to our customers of the highest quality, reliability and value,” said John Mendel, executive vice president of the Automobile Division of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “Accord’s success over four decades is deeply woven into the fabric of American car culture and American industry, and we are thankful for and deeply humbled by the loyalty and trust that our customers have placed in Honda and in Accord over the past 40 years.”
