The Honda Accord is a midsize sedan model produced and sold by the Honda Motor Company. The flagship model of the Honda catalog since the departure of the Honda Legend, the Honda Accord is one of Honda’s best-selling models and one of the world’s best-selling cars. It is sized and priced above the Honda Civic compact sedan and the Honda Insight compact hybrid sedan.
After the success of the Honda Civic in the 1970s, Honda began development on a larger model to serve as a companion. Originally envisioned as a more robust model in line with the Ford Mustang, the project was later rerouted to recreate the economy-styled success of the Civic formula in a larger and more practical build that resulted in the Honda Accord in 1976.
While originally sold as both a compact sedan and hatchback, the current era of the Honda Accord (now in its 10th generation) is built exclusively as a midsize four-door sedan but is also available as a hybrid model. Its competitors include the Hyundai Sonata, the Kia K5, the Nissan Altima, the Subaru Legacy, and the Toyota Camry.
