A Long-Running Favorite
The Accord debuted in 1976. Since then, over 12.7 million units have been sold. This makes the Accord the most popular and best-selling vehicle in America over the course of the last four decades. In 1982, Honda began producing the Accord in Ohio to help meet the heavy demand, and over 10.5 million Accords have been made in the United States since then. The Accord is the most popular of all midsize cars among those under 35 and has held that title for five out of the previous six years. It has also been the car in America with the most retail sales for the previous three years.
The Honda Accord was able to achieve such a long and rich history because it has adapted over the years to changing requirements from drivers. For example, as young drivers began to demand more technology, Honda ensured that the Accord offered more features. In fact, the 2016 Accord was one of the very first high-volume vehicles to offer both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
The Accord has also shown great innovation throughout the years. Most recently, it was one of the first vehicles in the Honda lineup to offer the Honda Sensing suite. This advanced suite of driver-assistive and safety technologies can prevent a collision and reduce the impact of an inevitable one.
