From our first look at the 2018 Honda Accord: "With the unveiling of the all-new 2018 Honda Accord in Detroit and at the company's headquarters in Torrance, Calif., Honda makes it clear it intends to keep its best-seller status. Lower, wider, with a longer wheelbase, but slightly shorter, the new Honda Accord's proportions are similar to what we've been getting accustomed to for the past couple years with the Civic. But the styling works better on the Accord, with none of the faux vents or extraneous surface excitement of the smaller car."
Starting Price: $23,990 (with auto transmission)
Above Average: Driving refinement, reliability, resale value
Below Average: Infotainment interface
Consensus: One of the most reputable and recommendable cars in the country
A perennial bestseller and one of our most awarded cars of 2017

2013-2016 Honda Accord (9th generation)
Used 2013-2016 examples of the popular Honda Accord EX trim currently range from about $13,000 to $20,000, according to Kelley Blue Book Fair Purchase Price. (2015 model pictured)
Key Changes/Improvements: Honda’s 2016 Accord sedan has a revised front fascia and a more rigid body. Remote start is offered on the EX, while the Touring gains LED headlights, auto high beam, heated rear seats and rain-sensing wipers. All trims can now be equipped with the Honda Sensing package.
Key Changes/Improvements: Only minor changes are due the 2015 Accord. The HomeLink remote system is now standard in EX-L and EX-L Navi trims of the sedan and coupe, as is the LaneWatch side monitor in the EX Coupe. Honda has yet to announce whether the limited-availability plug-in hybrid Accord will return for 2015.
Key Changes/Improvements: After an all-new sedan and coupe were introduced last year, only minor changes are made on mainstream models. The big news for 2014 Accords is the introduction of a regular hybrid model and a limited-production, plug-in hybrid variant.
Key Changes/Improvements: The 2013 Honda Accord is all new inside and out. Sleeker, rippled sheetmetal defines an exterior that has shrunk around an interior that is magically roomier. The 4-cylinder engine has direct injection and is mated to a CVT automatic transmission for better fuel economy, while the V6 has more power and exceptional fuel efficiency. New trims are Sport to capture younger buyers and, at the top, a Touring version. Also: The 2013 Honda Accord is one of our 10 Best Late-Model Used Cars Under $15,000
