The Honda Accord is the Most Awarded Vehicle in Car and Driver 10 Best History

The Honda Accord was just named to the Car and Driver 10 Best list for 2022, which marks the 36th time the Accord has made the prestigious list. With this most recent award the Accord is the most awarded vehicle in 10 Best history by an increasingly large margin and with 66 total awards, Honda also is the winningest brand in Car and Driver 10 Best history. At least one Honda has earned a spot on the annual list since the award's inception all the way back in 1983.

"Year after year we find ourselves recommending the Honda Accord to friends and family looking for a fun-to-drive, safe and fuel-efficient sedan,"

said Eddie Alterman, Chief Brand Officer of Car and Driver.

"Refined, dynamically engaging and affordable, the 2022 Honda Accord is the benchmark of the midsize sedan class. Congratulations to Honda on Accord's impressive winning streak."

Why Did the 2022 Honda Accord Win?

 

Reflecting Honda's commitment to keep each model fresh, a new Sport trim joins the Accord Hybrid lineup for the 2022 model year, replacing the EX trim level. Key standard features on the Sport include 19-inch alloy wheels, a black rear spoiler, LED headlamps and fog lights, wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, heated front seats, Sirius XM radio, an 8-speaker audio system, and sport pedals.

Setting the bar for the midsize sedan segment, Accord blends dramatic exterior design and a class-above interior with top-class refinement and driving dynamics. A trio of powerful and fuel-efficient powertrains are available, including a 192-horsepower turbocharged 1.5-liter with CVT, a 252-hp 2.0-liter turbo with 10-speed automatic, and a 2-motor hybrid powertrain which offers a best-in-class 212 total system horsepower and a 48 mpg (4.9L/100 KM) combined EPA rating. Every Accord also comes standard with the Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies.
