Launched back in 1976, the Accord is one of Honda’s longest-running product lines, only being outshined by the slightly older Civic, which launched in 1972. Millions of Accord models have sold over the years, and hundreds of thousands sell each year. What makes each Accord model tick is its blend of capability and versatility while appealing to those who prefer minimalism––the beauty is in its simplicity. Honda Accord models are fuel-efficient, reliable, versatile, performant, and more. Best of all, the Accord has increased its versatility with an efficient hybrid model, aptly named the Honda Accord Hybrid.
The Honda Accord Hybrid has been on the market for several years now but wasn’t available until nearly a half-century after the gasoline-powered model was released. Of course, hybrid vehicles weren’t around in the 1970s, but within the nearly fifty-year span between the original Accord and the first Accord Hybrid, the Accord did anything but sit still. For example, we know the Accord as a sedan, but the Accord was originally a hatchback. Eventually, Honda’s hatchback would sit alongside the coupe design. That’s not all––the Accord was also available as a station wagon. The Accord later consolidated into one cohesive mid-size sedan. The only new version released since then has been the Accord Hybrid.
Since the launch of the Accord, there have been ten generations of the beloved vehicle, which means used models are abundant. Alternatively, new model years continue to improve upon an already phenomenal foundation. Honda thinks further ahead than much of its competition, translating to pre-owned models from five or more years ago that harness comparable technology to the models released today. From efficiency and performance to safety and infotainment, the features offered by the Honda Accord have made it a long-time favorite of drivers everywhere.
The 2022 Honda Accord is a subtle update to the long-running sedan, which is to say it remains a fuel-efficient, reliable, versatile, performant, and technology-filled automobile. The first of the two turbocharged engine options is a 1.5L I-4 that pairs with a CVT. With this configuration, your new Accord will get an even 192 hp and 192 lb-ft of torque, and by staying with the base model, you’ll save the most money on fuel. Alternatively, drivers seeking more power should look no further than the turbocharged 2.0L I-4 engine available on the Sport and Touring trims. Leaping into this powertrain means your Accord will instead output 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque.
The 2022 Honda Accord gives owners of even the base model a robust infotainment center, complete with an 8-inch screen and the modern-day amenities everyone has come to grow and love, such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Accord remains one of the safest vehicles you can drive today, and there’s no better evidence of this than the IIHS giving the 2022 Accord its Top Safety Pick+ award.[a] Whether you are a commuter, carpooler, or Sunday driver, the 2022 Honda Accord will get you to where you need to be safely and soundly.
To acquire a more modernized feature set with your new-to-you used Honda Accord, you should aim for something released in the ninth generation or newer. However, the eighth generation Accord, which began with the 2008 model year, is still an exceptionally well-designed vehicle that inevitably saves you more money than the newer counterparts, whether brand new or used. As for the beginning of the ninth generation of Accords, the 2013 model brought several improvements.
The 2013 Accord was configurable with either a 2.4L I-4 engine paired with a CVT or a 6-speed manual transmission, or a 3.5L V6 engine in tandem with a 6-speed automatic transmission. At its best, the 2013 Honda Accord can output an impressive 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque if equipped with the V6, but it’s with the standard 2.4L I-4 engine paired with the CVT where you’ll get the best fuel efficiency. With this configuration, you’ll get EPA-estimated ratings of up to 26 MPG in the city and 35 MPG on the highway.[b]
Why should you invest in a tenth-generation Accord or newer? It comes down to a couple of things: safety and technology. The tenth-generation Accord, which started with the 2018 model, is where you can guarantee you’ll be getting a more modernized feature set. However, some of these technologies are in the last few Accord models preceding the tenth generation. For example, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto were in the 2016 Accord, and these features continue to this day. Honda Sensing began appearing on the Accord models released around this time, giving the model a host of safety features including a Collision Mitigation Braking System, Road Departure Mitigation System, and more.
