2017 5-Year Cost to Own Awards: Best Mid-Size Car

2017 Honda Accord

Best Mid-Size Car:
2017 Honda Accord

The Honda Accord is the kind of car that just does everything right. With a lineage that goes back four decades, Honda's midsize sedan has honed itself to be the segment's benchmark. No wonder the latest model also took top honors as the Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Award winner among midsize sedans.

The Honda Accord's recipe for success includes supple but playful driving manners, efficient powertrains, a roomy interior and a history of reliability. Combined with a starting price of just over $23,000 and its ability to hold its value, this latest Honda Accord returns to the top of the 5-Year Cost to Own pack.

The 2017 Accord lineup spans numerous trims and models to suit a variety of tastes, from a V6 coupe to a nearly 50-mpg hybrid. Most familiar and by far the best-seller is the Accord sedan. As we found in our full review, "All Accord models are brisk, compliant and comfortable, with each particular model offering more or less of those traits depending on drivetrain. The bread-and-butter 4-cylinder Accord with an automatic transmission finely balances the comfort/agility equation while offering one of the best continuously variable transmissions (CVT) in the business."

Never settling for the status quo, the Accord continues to up its game. One of the most impressive recent additions is the Honda Sensing suite of safety features. Available for just $1,000 extra on automatic transmission models, this package adds adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, road-departure mitigation and automatic emergency braking. With a starting price of just over $23,000, the 2017 Accord resides where value, quality, features and economy intersect.
