    With all of the excitement surrounding the 2018 Honda Accord…

    Wait. If you’ve seen anything about the 2018 Honda Accord, you’ll understand what we’re talking about. And if you haven’t, well…do yourself a favor and go check it out. But I digress…

    With all of the excitement, it’s easy to forget that some people may not be looking for a brand new Tenth Generation Accord. That said, if you’re shopping for a Used Honda Accord, there’s a wealth to choose from. In fact, it’s estimated that 75% of Honda vehicles sold within the last 25 years are still on the road. A best among non-luxury brands, this statistic combined with countless customer satisfaction surveys, results in Honda’s being recognized as one of the best mainstream brands.

    From hatchbacks and coupes to wagons and crossovers, the global presence of the Honda Accord has taken many shapes over 42+ years. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at the most recent (ninth) generation of the Honda Accord, with begins with the 2013 model year.

    With a full redesign, the Accord was overhauled in almost every aspect to kick off the ninth generation offering. Despite a modest resizing, resulting in a more streamlined appearance, the Accord still made use of every square inch of its inside dimensions. Offering plenty of cabin space, as well as cargo space, there were few (if any) compromises made. In fact, the selection of quality, soft-touch materials only served to enhance the strength of the redesign, setting the new Accord apart as a better value overall.

    Made available as either a midsize sedan or coupe, there were a number of trim levels offered, some of which denoted a change in engine spec.

    The sedan, for example, was available in six trim levels. The LX, Sport, and EX trims were powered by a 2.4-liter four cylinder, paired with a six-speed manual transmission (with the option of Honda’s newly-introduced automatic continually-variable transmission). The EX-L, EX-L with Navi and Touring trims were powered by a 3.5-liter V6 mated to either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. The four-cylinder option was rates for 185 horsepower, 181 lb-ft of torque and 22 mpg combined while the V6 delivered up to 278 hp, 252 lb-ft and 25 mpg.

    The coupe was made available in four trims: the LX-S, EX, EX-L and EX-L with Navi. The breakdown of powertrain configurations was largely the same, with only the EX-L and Navi trims scoring the V6. Outputs were also largely the same, albeit with improved fuel economy of approximately 30 mpg combined.

    In terms of available technology, Honda was extremely successful. Building its infotainment system around an 8-inch display (connected to rear camera) the Accord embraced technology was becoming increasingly more standard every day. Features such as Bluetooth connectivity, and Pandora music streaming were made available at the base level. Satellite radio, voice-controlled navigation, and advanced safety systems were introduced at higher levels.

    Upon its introduction, the 2013 Honda Accord was embraced as one of the best offerings in its class.

    With nothing about the 2013 Accord that could be depicted as ‘broke’, Honda entered 2014 to nothing to ‘fix’. Instead, they were able to look at what was ‘missing’. And with that, the Accord line-up grew by not one, but two new offerings that would shake up the growing hybrid segment.

    The ‘standard’ Accord hybrid was powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (combined with electric engine) and mated to a CVT. Rated for 196 horsepower and 226 lb-ft of torque, it earned an EPA-estimated 47 mpg combined (50 city, 45 highway). A plug-in variant was also offered.

    As you might expect, the combined success of the previous model years left little room (or need) for improvement in the 2015 offering. With that in mind, Honda opted to ‘stay the course’ furthering the illusion of ‘ease’ with which they’d reached the top of the family sedan segment, and stayed for nearly four decades.

    But for anyone who felt as though Honda was resting on their laurels, the 2016 model year would serve as an indication that there was more up their sleeve.

    With revamped front and fear fascias, as well as redesigned LED taillights, the 2016 enjoyed the perfect amount of rejuvenation, giving it a refreshed appearance. Available technologies were updated to include improved Smartphone connectivity, compatability with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and Siri Eyes Free voice command functionality.

    Perhaps the most significant improvements, was the optional inclusion of the the new Honda’ Sensing package. Featuring such features as adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning and intervention, lane departure warning and intervention and automatic braking, these improved safety features only served to enhance the Accord’s appeal to the families who had solidified it as one of the best offerings on the road.

  • 2017

    While the Accord went largely unchanged in the 2017 model year, the inclusion of a new Accord Sport Special Edition, among the offerings, managed to get some attention. Offering a slight improvement in output, the standard Sport trim served up 189 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque. Offering a performance-inspired interior, it was only further enhanced by the ‘SSE’ package, which included special-edition badging, heated front seats and interior trim embellishments.

    True to form, Honda’s brief pause heralded a wealth of improvements to follow, as evidenced by the Tenth Generation 2018 Accord to follow.
