For nearly four decades the Accord and Honda have gone hand in hand. What began in 1976 as a tiny, no-frills 2-door
hatchback has grown into today's full-featured family
coupe. In the process it has set the benchmark for the
midsize sedan segment, one that's crowded by rivals like the
Nissan Altima and
Ford Fusion. After reinventing itself in 2013 with a new design and more efficient powertrains, the 2014 Accord lineup expands with the introduction of two
hybrids, a traditional version and another that can be plugged in to run on electricity alone. The additions further bolster the Accord's something-for-everyone appeal, while a starting price of under $23,000 assured it a spot on our list as one of the 10 Best Sedans Under $25,000 for 2014.
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.
