A History in the Making

The Accord Legacy

In 1976, the first Accord was introduced. For a humble hatchback, it was a runaway success—winning over car buyers with its simple design and fuel-efficiency. It quickly became the best-selling car in America and continues to hold the honor, with over 13 million sold.

As a revolutionary car for both Honda and the entire auto industry, its performance, value and lasting power have been proven time and again. With a record 36 appearances on the prestigious Car and Driver’s 10Best list, the Accord is a testament to our passion for engineering around a people-first ownership experience.

Setting the Standard

For nine generations, the fun-to-drive Accord has consistently brought the automotive mainstream unforeseen levels of technology, fuel-efficiency, safety and reliability.

The Accord introduced the world to our V-6 engine, became the first car to pass strict Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle standards, and raised the bar with our Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies. From advanced powertrains to addressing environmental issues, these milestones have changed what American consumers expect in a quality automobile.

The Challenging Spirit

For over 40 years, the Accord has lived up to its reputation as a genuine innovator. Each generation has introduced the automotive mainstream to new and unexpected advancements, earning the trust of more American car buyers than any other vehicle during this time. Never resting on our laurels, this drive pushes us to continually develop world-class safety, efficiency and design.

The 10th generation Accord has been engineered to fully embody this purpose. With a new design approach and turbocharged engines, it’s the future of driver confidence and performance that defines the Accord legacy.

Best Seller in America

From America with Love

The ‘88 Accord Coupe was built exclusively at the Ohio plant, making it one of the first domestically-assembled Japanese nameplate vehicles exported to Japan.*

A Vigorous Redesign

In 1982, Honda produced the Accord at an all-new plant in Ohio making us the first Japanese automaker to build cars in America using domestic and globally-sourced parts.

Honda Accord Debuts
