Is the Honda Accord the Best Family Sedan?

April 24th, 2017 by

If you’ve ever noticed the abundance of awards and accolades heaped upon the Honda Accord over the years, then you may have asked yourself, “Might this be the best family sedan out there today?” While ultimately your answer may come down to personal preference, there’s no denying the Accord has quite a lot to brag about in terms of its many recognitions—including numerous Car and Driver 10Best Awards* and a 2017 KBB Best Buy of the Year Award among midsize cars from Kelley Blue Book**. Not sure what all the fuss is about? Let’s take a closer look.

Top Safety Scores

When it comes to family cars, there’s one area in particular that most folks are going to prioritize, and that’s safety. Historically, the Honda Accord has provided a range of advanced safety features, and these inclusions help explain, at least in part, its strong safety scores. The 2017 Honda Accord alone earned itself a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS*** and five out of five stars from the NHTSA***. Safety highlights on this year’s model include the Honda Sensing™ suite, which comes with a Collision Mitigation Braking System, a Lane Keeping Assist System, a Road Departure Mitigation System, and Adaptive Cruise Control.

Record-Breaking Thirty-One “10Best Cars” Awards

One of the best shows of quality in a vehicle is consistency. It reflects reliability, dependability, and a winning formula that’s too good to mess with. Perhaps that’s why the Honda Accord recently broke a pretty amazing record, having won its thirty-first “10 Best Cars” Award from Car and Driver^ in the magazine’s 35-year history. Now in its ninth generation, the Accord continues to give people what they want, from the confident performance of available V6 power to an accessible starting price and a spacious, well-equipped cabin.
