2016 Honda Accord

Honda’s popular Accord marks 2016 with revised styling and added features. Coupes and sedans are again offered (they have different design details front and rear), but the Hybrid won’t return until early next year. The 2016s are due to go on sale in August with prices ranging from $22,925 (including destination) for the LX sedan with manual transmission to $35,400 for the top-line V6 Touring sedan shown at right.

Scion iMIt’s a bit dangerous to mess with a successful formula. Just ask Coca-Cola, which introduced reformulated “New Coke” 30 years ago – with disastrous results.

That case became a textbook example on how not to mess with success. Seems Honda took that to heart when approaching the “new” 2016 Accord.

First seen at the Beijing Auto Show in 2012, the Honda Concept C may give us a feel for what the next U.S.-market Accord will look like.

By Jim Gorzelany

Honda’s top-selling vehicle, the Honda Accord, should receive a complete redesign for the 2018 model year, but we don’t anticipate the automaker will veer far from what’s been a successful direction for this midsize sedan and coupe combo. We expect the next-generation Accord will continue to offer a winning combination of commuter-friendly performance, a comfortable and spacious interior, good fuel economy and sufficient–though perhaps not class-leading–features, all at competitive pricing. A fuel-saving Accord Hybrid, and an even more frugal plug-in Accord Hybrid sedan will likely continue in the lineup. The question is whether Honda will be satisfied playing the perennial number two to the top-selling car in the U.S., the Toyota Camry, or will it pull out all the proverbial stops to gain segment supremacy?

1982 Honda Accord Review

Accord prices started at $8,245 for the base sedan with manual transmission. A 2-door hatchback was also offered.

I would argue that it was the ’82 Accord that changed the way Americans thought about Japanese cars. By this time many car shoppers had heard good things about Honda, but the cars were still a little too small, a little too modestly powered, and a little too, well, Japanese-looking. That all changed for 1982. All new that year, Accord grew up before shoppers’ eyes. The car now stood taller, boasted substantial-looking creased lines, and offered a decent increase in horsepower and torque. Also worth noting, 1982 was the first year for U.S. Accord production.

Toyota sold 408,000 Camrys in 2013. To put that in perspective, for each Lexus CT 200h the maker sold, it moved 27 Camrys.

Americans bought about two million full-size pickups last year. To put that into perspective, consider this: Roughly one in eight vehicles sold in the U.S. last year was a big pickup. Yet, impressive as that sounds, there’s a vehicle class that handily outsells the pickup.

Accord Feature

One of the best things about the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid is that it’s a version of the very excellent Honda Accord sedan that just happens to get 50 mpg. It is marked by blue-accented trim in front, and a “Hybrid” badge in back.

When it refers to a milestone birthday – and it’s yours – it’s really kind of a bummer. (Trust me on this one.) But when it refers to a car’s MPG rating – and it’s yours – it’s really a cause for celebration.

And that’s the case with new 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid. When it went on sale at the end of October, 2013, it carried a window sticker boasting an EPA rating of 50 mpg city/45 mpg highway.

To put this in perspective, only two non-plug-in cars currently carry an EPA rating of 50 mpg or higher on their window stickers: the well-known Toyota Prius (51/48) and its smaller sibling, the Prius c (53/46).

Since its American introduction for 1976, the Accord has been a big part of Honda’s phenomenal growth as an automaker. And for the last several years, it has not only been Honda’s best-selling model, but one of the best-selling cars in the U.S.

2013 Honda Accord Sport Sedan

The odds are against this. Against me having driven, in a row, three cars that I would either buy myself of recommend without hesitation. But so it happened. In order, I drove newly redesigned 2013 copies of the Lexus ES 350, Volkswagen Passat TDI (manual), and Honda Accord Sport.

1976 Honda Accord vs. 2013 Honda Accord

The first Accord debuted in the U.S. in May 1976 as a compact hatchback. Its wheelbase was a mere 93.7 inches; that’s 4.7 inches shorter than the 98.4-inch wheelbase of today’s subcompact Honda Fit.

The redesigned 2013 Honda Accord Sedan and Coupe are hitting dealerships nationwide right now. A new generation of a benchmark car like the Accord is always a special occasion in the automotive world, and the new ninth-generation Accord doesn’t disappoint.
