The Accord was first introduced in North America in 1977.
The new Accord will mark its 11th generation.
As you know, all legacy North American automakers have unceremoniously abandoned midsize sedans in favour of SUVs. Not so with nearly all Japanese and Korean car companies. Despite a downturn in interest and sales, the sedan is alive and well and large part, best represented by the Honda Accord.
The Accord’s history has success written all over it as it’s had the word “best” associated to it throughout its long career. As a “10 Best”, best-selling, best reliability, best resale value, and so on, Honda has always delivered its best midsize sedan.
The current 10th generation car was launched for 2018 and was recently updated for the 2021 model year. And now, we know that Honda will introduce an all-new Accord for the 2023 model year. Nothing is officially known or confirmed about the new car and knowing Honda, it could go a number of ways. If we had to place a bet, we’d put our money on its design only slightly evolving as it served as the inspiration for the new Civic and that a hybrid version will return.
This year, in preparation for 2023, is a busy one for Honda. They refer to it as the year of the SUV but clearly, that’s not all they’re up to. More to come.
