The midsize sedan category is full of competition, but the Honda Accord is still the champion. It has won a trophy case full of awards over the years, and the praise from critics and everyday drivers has landed it on all the “Best Car” lists since the beginning of time, it seems. Now, after its complete redesign, the 2019 Honda Accord continues to stand out thanks to its high-quality interior and exterior details, powerful engine options, and superior safety features. Here are some of the 2019 awards that the new Accord has won.
- Car and Driver’s 10 Best of 2019 List – Car and Driver praises the Accord for balancing “…engagement, practicality, and quality more consistently than any other car.” It’s worth mentioning that this is the Accord’s 33rd year on this list, as well, which is quite unprecedented yet unsurprising.
- Kelley Blue Book Midsize Car Best Buy 2019– Kelley Blue Book editors love the Accord, too, noting that it’s “the complete package.” Fresh and refined, with an easy-to-use central stack and quality safety tech, the Accord makes the grade as KBB’s top midsize car.
- Edmunds Buyers Most Wanted and Editor’s Choice 2019– The auto experts at Edmunds note that the 2019 Honda Accord “remains a top contender” and is “an excellent vehicle all around.” It’s as luxurious a sedan as you can buy for under $30,000, and that’s been the case for years. In fact, the range-topping Accord may even be a better buy than the Mercedes C-Class.
- IIHS Top Safety Picks 2019– The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety included the 2019 Honda Accord in its roundup of the safest cars, giving it top marks for safety according to its rigorous standards. Another year, another IIHS TSP designation – seems par for the course for one of the safest cars in America.
