About the Honda Accord
Feel like you see the Honda Accord everywhere? There’s good reason: It’s been a bestseller in the United States for nearly 25 years. The small and fuel-efficient Honda Accord was introduced in 1976 as a response to the energy crisis and controls on emissions.

Car and Driver’s review of the 2013 Honda Accord sedan said that “like Rocky, the ninth-generation Accord returns to the ring leaner, more efficient, and more powerful,” and praised the “stylish and sophisticated” exterior.
