2019 5-Year Cost to Own Awards: Best Mid-Size Car

2019 Honda Accord

Best Mid-Size Car: 2019 Honda Accord

The Honda Accord, an all-new model for 2018, has had no major changes for the 2019 model year. One thing about this impressive Honda sedan has changed, however: The 2019 Accord quickly shot to the top of our rankings as the Best Midsize Car in KBB's 2019 5-Year Cost to Own ratings.

How did this Honda make such a move, after not being in the top 3 last year?

Our Expert Review provides some answers: "If we could recommend just one sedan for the majority of buyers, it would be the Honda Accord. In fact, Honda's venerable midsize sedan is our overall winner for the 2019 Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Award. The 2019 Honda Accord, which was just overhauled last year, is the exceptionally rare car that does almost everything right yet retains enough variety to appeal to a wide range of buyers. Whether you just want a reliable, easy-to-drive, efficient yet energetic commuter, a driver-oriented manual-transmission sedan with a potent turbo engine, or a hybrid that attains nearly 50 mpg, the Accord delivers. Excellent resale value and a standard suite of safety and driver-assistance features known as Honda Sensing further bolster the Accord's allure."

Not enough? Consider this: The 2019 Honda Accord, which can get up to 38 mpg on the highway, has a starting MSRP of $23,720, plus a destination charge of $895. While that's a remarkably good price for a spacious sedan that's as fun to drive as it is practical, it's this Honda's excellent reliability, fuel economy and reputation that make it reign as the Best Midsize Car in KBB's 2019 5-Year Cost to Own ratings.
